July 28 - 6:30pm
Downtown Lethbridge - Wine and Cheese Summer Gallery Hop
An exciting opportunity to experience exotic wines and amazing local talent! The Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge is hosting a progressive wine and cheese art stroll, organized in conjunction with the Alberta Summer Games which are being hosted in Lethbridge. The goal is to have an event that will both welcome visitors to Lethbridge, as well as engaging and re-familiarizing our own community about the vibrancy of our arts scene.
Just as London is bringing the world together for the summer Olympics, Lethbridge is bringing the World together with wines from across the Globe. Each of our five venues representing one of the five Olympic rings, will have a unique wine and cheese combination.
The wines have been selected by the knowledgeable staff at Andrew Hilton, and will provide a wonderful way to complement your palate while stimulating your visual senses! Each venue will be open for an hour, and we hope participants will be able to circulate to all locations.
