FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Downtown Oregon City hosts a Fall Wine and Cider Walk 6-9pm Thursday, September 26th, celebrating harvest season and the fermented bounty of Pacific Northwest grapes and apples. After two consecutive sold out wine walks, Downtown Oregon City Association (DOCA) is delighted to add local craft cider offerings to a curated selection of premium regional wines.
The fall walk begins in historic Liberty Plaza at 815 Main Street, where participants receive a custom glass, map and tasting list for their self-guided sip and stroll adventure. Fifteen downtown Oregon City businesses each host a local winery or cidery with a knowledgeable representative sampling unique offerings, sharing details about their wine and cider production techniques and providing packaged bottle/can to-go sales. The walk spans five blocks of Main Street and Railroad Avenue.
The Fall Wine and Cider Walk is part of a quarterly sip and stroll series hosted in downtown Oregon City. Tickets are limited to 400 guests; $25 cost includes all samples and a keepsake glass. Tickets are available online. DOCA’s next sip and stroll is a Winter Spirits Walk featuring local distilleries, held Thursday, December 12th. Downtown Oregon City Association is an award winning 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to building community and cultivating commerce revitalizing Oregon City’s historic downtown Oregon City.
Oregon City was the first incorporated city west of the Rocky Mountains and the first capital of the Oregon territory. Celebrated as the end of the rugged Oregon Trail that brought pioneers westward, this year, Oregon City celebrates 175 years since incorporation. Located just southeast of Portland, on the East side of the Willamette River the City’s unique topography includes three terraces, rising above the river. Historic Main Street is the ‘living room’ of the city and welcomes local and visitors alike.
