Event attendees can expect to party like a local in the River Market Pavilions on May 16, with Locally Labeled Partners, music by Cons of Formant and Locally Labeled wristbands for River Market restaurant specials following the party.  

This event offers a great opportunity to sample or purchase local libations, become familiar with the Locally Labeled Passport program and even get a jump start on filling one. Attendees who collect three (3) passport stickers at the event can present them to an event staffer for a special Locally Labeled insulated solo style cup, only available at this event!
