Cheers!

The Village West WineFest showcases over 200 wines and 100+ craft beers from around the world; featuring food from Kansas City’s best restaurants, bars, and caterers; and benefiting the community’s most dedicated charities.

2018 WineFest

We have worked hard to make WineFest the most anticipated event in Kansas City, and not the largest! Beginning this year we will be limited to the first 1,000 guests. The success of the last decade is due to our wonderful restaurants, sponsors, local distributors and volunteers who work to make WineFest the event that it has become.

Wine + Beer + Food (6pm – 9pm)

The wine walk features unlimited wine tasting and food from some of Kansas City’s finest restaurants. Take in the atmosphere as The Legends Outlet rooftop transforms into the greatest party KC has seen.

We don’t discriminate…we love beer too! Sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the world’s best beers in the Beer Garden. Featuring 100+ different types of craft beer.

All wine and beer samples are included with your GA ticket. You must be 21 to attend WineFest.

More details about the event can be found by clicking the ticket link above. Cheers to a great time and supporting a great cause!
