Nine Lakes Winemaker's Market

Festival Event

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not have a wine tasting this year. We are converting this event into a safe, fun Winemaker's Market.

Our open-air, spread-out market will be at Melton Lake Park in Oak Ridge, TN on September 12 from 3-7p.m. Buy bottles of TN wine not found in stores. Chat with winemakers and vineyard owners, find unique artisan gifts and pick up something yummy from our food trucks.

All CDC guidelines for health and safety will be followed, including masks for all vendors (we ask that you wear one, too), social distancing, hand sanitizing stations and more.

Tickets are $10/person and will be limited to allow for social distancing. Proceeds support United Way of Anderson County.

With your $10 entry you receive a 6-compartment wine tote & glass.
See you there!
