PARTY IN THE PARK – Wine, Beer & Food Tasting Event – April 18

Muskogee Rotary Club Turns Wine Into Water at the 8th Annual Party in the Park event on Saturday, April 18th in beautiful Honor Heights Park. This annual event brings together Oklahoma wineries, breweries, and local food vendors for an afternoon of wine, beer, and food tasting in The Papilion, the park’s new butterfly garden. Listen to live jazz and enjoy what the park has to offer during the Azalea Festival.

Through its 501 (c)(3) foundation, proceeds from Party in the Park are used to provide water filters to families, villages and schools where water is unavailable or unclean.
Admission to Party in the Park is $15 in advance or $20 at the door and includes a souvenir wine glass. (Price includes tax.)

Tickets are available in Muskogee at Blossoms, Mabrey Bank (formerly Citizens Security) on Main St., Armstrong Bank, and American Bank of Oklahoma on W. Broadway.

You can also purchase tickets through PayPal or from any Party in the Park Committee member. Must be 21 or older to attend.
