2024 Walkabout Participants

More than 20 years ago, six Wichita residents took a trip to the New Orleans wine festival.  While there they participated in the Royal Street Stroll.  Participants in this event stroll from business to business in a four-block area in the French Quarter to sample wine and food.

The group thought this would be a wonderful addition to the Midwest Winefest and brought the idea back to the Winefest Committee… and, as they say, the rest is history!
