$17 for Sunday Admission for Two (Up to $34 Value)

More than 70 Northwest wineries showcase their homegrown libations at the 19th annual Sip! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic, painting cheeks rosy from inside the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. Attendees can sidle up to more than 30 food booths and 55 art vendors as they pursue plum-colored libations by the taste, glass, bottle, or case. Sunday's guest chef, Tony Danna, preps signature eats for spectators during a cooking demo, while the live melodies of Dana Libonati, John Wayland Harr, and Matt Seymour speckle the soundscape. The event lasts from noon to 5 p.m., and includes admission to the museum.

Sip! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic

Originally established and overseen by a committee of parents, Sip! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic began in 1994 as a small community fundraiser for St. James Catholic School. Today, the annual festival draws nearly 10,000 people to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, requiring more than 300 volunteers to assemble regional winemakers, culinary masters, and artists. Vintners disclose trade tips as they peddle their ambrosial libations, all of which are ultimately ranked by a panel of professional judges into bronze, silver, gold, and best-of-show tiers. Guests can take wine-tasting classes, which teach sippers how distinguish fruity undertones from a banana hiding in their glass, or glean cooking tips from kitchen demonstrations and food booths. Throughout the weekend-long gathering, artists display their opuses in the form of tangible wares or live music.
