Women invited to head downtown and ‘UnWined’

The Downtown Vernon Association hosts a new event just in time for Vernon Winter Carnival

UnWined Downtown is the newest event in Downtown Vernon during Vernon Winter Carnival.

UnWined Downtown, taking place Thursday, is an exclusive ladies night event showcasing downtown boutiques and businesses. UnWined Downtown guests will be treated to a night of food and wine sampling, late night shopping with special discounts, product demos and door prizes.

Starting at 6 p.m., UnWined guests will register at Monashee’s to pick up their UnWined swag bags filled with goodies and discounts from event participants, start the night off with a special wine tasting hosted by Monashee’s, and head out to visit the 11 UnWined venues. Each venue will open their doors to provide a unique late-night shopping experience with special discounts for UnWined guests only and has partnered with at least one other business to provide appies, wine samples, salon services or product demos.

“We’ve got clothing stores paired with restaurants and chocolate shops, tanning salons paired with caterers and travel agencies offering wine tastings,” said Hailey Rilkoff, events and promotions coordinator for Downtown Vernon. “Ladies are going to have so much fun at each venue they visit during UnWined.”

Ladies can also add on a ticket to the VIP After Party that will take place at The Phoenix from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. that same night. Here ladies will enjoy signature cocktails, appetizers, a mini set-up by Libra Love Boutique, magician Leif David, UnWined dessert and more door prizes!
