The city of Milton will host its third annual Milton Wine Festival Saturday, Sept. 28, to raise money for an inclusive playground in Milton.

The festival will be held at City Hall from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Ticket holders will receive unlimited wine and beer sampling, music and a commemorative glass. Food will be available for sale from the finest local restaurants and Taco Mac will be hosting a beer garden.

“We try to focus on ultra premium, state or small produced wines,” festival director Chuck Squires said. “We want people to learn about wine, and find new wines they wouldn’t have picked up.”

General admission tickets are $50, but visitors can opt for the $75 general admission ticket that includes admission to Children’s Charities hospitality area. private bathrooms, seating, catered food and water. Guests will also received a gift bag with a Big South Festival shirt and tasting cup.

The festival also offers $25 tickets for designated drivers. Please be aware this event sold out in advance last year. There are a limited number of tickets available.

The Milton Wine Festival benefits Children’s Charities. The festival’s primary goal is to raise money to fund all-inclusive play park equipment, programs and services in the city of Milton to benefit community children. The new park will be the first of its scale in North Fulton County by encompassing more than an acre of city property. The park was approved at Milton City council last week and will be built on the Old Milton Country Club property.

“One of the hurdles with special education is that there are 500 summer camps, but very few of them are for children with special needs,” Squires said. “Families can’t go to a regular park because (special needs children) could get hurt.”

The park will provide a fun and safe experience for children with all abilities and disabilities.

Last year the 2018 Milton Wine Festival raised $10,024.00. The total amount need for the park is $500,000.
