Shreveport's premier wine event, CORK XVII, is back with even more vino and foods to sample than ever this Saturday, April 1st, 2023!

I have to admit, I'm not a wine connoisseur but I'm excited to share details about the 2023 CORK Wine Festival with you because it's a must-go event for wine lovers and future wine lovers alike! That's why it's so surprising that you can still get general admission tickets the week of the event.

This is the perfect event to get a group of girlfriends together for. I know several of my coworkers go every year, so we'll run into plenty of people we know.

What: CORK XVII: A Red River Revel Wine Event
When: 2-5 pm Saturday, April 1, 2023
Where: The Upper Pavilion at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport.
Tickets: corkwinefestival.com


Here are 5 reasons you should get your CORK tickets today:

1) CORK raises money for a great cause: It supports the Arts Education programs at the Red River Revel Arts Festival, a 9-day celebration each fall with more than 100 artists, plenty of great local food and drink, and all kinds of concerts and performances!
