May is a good time to start enjoying life outdoors again. You’ve been quarantining for months, maybe a year, it’s nicer outside, and more than ever spring festivals are welcome relief from months in hibernation.
The Chicago Wine Fest (Spring Edition) is in Lincoln Park Zoo this year. Not only will this venue make you feel right at home—especially if you’re used to drinking with a bunch of animals—but it will also give you something to look at while you enjoy a glass. Or three.
Rain or shine, the Wine Fest will take place in the Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House and Foreman Pavilion at Lincoln Park Zoo. Scheduled from noon until 10pm on May 15, this “all-day, all-night vino experience” will be an opportunity to “sample premium wine to your heart’s content while live entertainment keeps the party lively.”
The Official Chicago Wine Fest is presented at Lincoln Park Zoo by Craft Hospitality; all proceeds go to support local nonprofits.
