Wine & Whiskey Festival Comes To Station Street Labor Day Weekend

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

The Wine & Whiskey Festival is coming to Station Street Labor Day weekend through a partnership between Westbound Bar, Regan’s Place, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Stir, Terminal Brewhouse, Songbirds and Backstage Bar.

These local businesses are teaming up to bring this first-ever wine and whiskey festival to Chattanooga’s Southside. 

Ticket prices start at $30 for one-day, early-bird general admission and go up for VIP packages.  

Festival goers will sample wines from around the world as well as an extensive offering of whiskeys on both evenings followed by after parties. As guests hang out on Station Street, they will enjoy a live, outdoor concert featuring Electric Avenue, Neon Moon, The White Liars and Joey Winslett Band. For those worried about missing the weekend college football games, there will be two TVs featuring Oregon vs. Auburn on Saturday and Houston vs. Oklahoma on Sunday.

A general admission ticket includes admission to the outdoor concert, one punch card for sampling up to 15 tastings of wine or whiskey and admission to the after parties at Regan’s Place, Westbound Bar, Backstage Bar and Songbirds. Food will be available for purchase at the many restaurants on Station Street. 

“We are beyond excited to bring Station Street’s Wine & Whiskey Festival to the Southside,” said Duane Carleo, owner of Westbound Bar and Regan’s Place. “Our family of local businesses has mapped out this weekend of celebration and festivities for months. Station Street has always provided the best entertainment, food and drinks for locals and guests alike, and this festival proves it.”

This two-day event will take place Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday, Sept. 1. Gates will open at 7 p.m. each night, with sampling running from opening until 10 p.m. The outdoor concerts will start at 7:45 p.m each night.

If festival goers do not want to participate in the sampling, concert/after party tickets are also available for purchase. Food will be offered for purchase from Stir, Terminal Brewhouse, Backstage Bar, Songbirds and Westbound Bar. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the Songbirds Foundation. All attendees must be at least 21 years of age and present valid photo identification to attend this event.
