KINGSPORT, Tennessee (WJHL) – Wine and whiskey enthusiasts gathered in downtown Kingsport on Saturday at the Kingsport Farmers Market to sample a selection of wines and whiskeys.
Participants were able to sample local and regional spirits, as well as dishes from nearby downtown restaurants.
Local musicians such as Jeff Lane came to liven up the event.
This is one of the main fundraisers for the Downtown Kingsport Association. All profits from the event will be donated to the association.
Downtown Kingsport Association Executive Director Robin Cleary said: âWe support small businesses, you put money back directly into your community, you support these people who are your colleagues, your family, the people you are with. go to church so it’s always good to buy local whenever you can.
This is the second year of the âWine and Whiskey Festivalâ, however, the fundraiser has tested different formats over the past six years.
