23 Jan Tomahawk’s ‘Spring Fling Art/Wine Walk’ prepares for another year
The Annual ‘Tomahawk Spring Fling Art/Wine Walk’ is back for another year, this time with over 20 vendors including, artists, musicians, stores, and much more.
“You know, we started off really small, and now it’s just grown into something so big,” explained Tomahawk Main Street Director Christine Vorpagel. “It’s more fun each and every year.”
This year, the ‘Spring Fling’ will include an art walk at over 25 locations in the historic downtown Tomahawk area that spans around 4 blocks.
“It’ll go from noon until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and the art walk is free,” explained Vorpagel.
The way the walk works is simple. You and your group walk around downtown Tomahawk visiting shops on a map that are participating in the event.
“It’s such a big part of the Tomahawk culture,” participant Karen Morris explained. “It brings everyone together and allows them to see all of Tomahawk.”
Inside the shops, there are pieces of artwork, authors, and even ways to win door prizes.
The wine is a little different as it goes from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday and costs $20.
“There are 20 different stops for this wine walk,” said Vorpagel. “You get a cup with your purchase, and it comes with a sticker on the bottom of it. That helps you get entered into the door prize contest.”
Other ‘Spring Fling’ activities include chalk art being done by Tomahawk High School students, bands, food and drink, and more.
If you’d like to participate in the wine walk on Friday you can purchase a ticket at one of these Tomahawk stores,: Standard Mercantile, Silver Threads, Scentability, and Tomahawk Stove Junction. The limit is 200 participants.
Door prizes and a silent auction go from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
