LINCOLN PARK — The Lincoln Park Wine Fest returns this weekend for its sixth edition, featuring varietals of wine from dozens of winemakers.

This year’s festival runs 5-10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday at Jonquil Park, 1001 W. Wrightwood Ave. It will have food pavilions selling top-of-the line wines and food. Sommeliers and brand ambassadors will be throughout the park to help people learn more about the varietals, organizers said.

Tickets are available online and cost $40 for general admission and $80 for VIP passes. Ticket holders will have access to a two-hour tasting session where they can sample 12 types of wine.

General admission passes get visitors 12 standard wine tastings and a stemmed commemorative wine glass. VIP ticket holders will get the same, but with an additional five specialty wine tastings.

The festival will also have some live music and artisanal vendors, said Courtland Hickey, president of the Jonquil Park Advisory Council and chairman of the Wrightwood Neighbors Association’s events committee.

“It’s a great event where people can enjoy a relaxing day in the park with the company of their friends or family,” Hickey said.

Proceeds from the event go toward the Jonquil Park Advisory Council for events like movies in the park and its Family Fun Fest in June, Hickey said. They also go toward long-term park improvements.

Previous years’ wine festivals have funded major park improvements like its sculptures and tennis courts, Hickey said.
