Raise your glass to celebrate our 10th annual IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, a can’t-miss event in the Carmel Arts & Design District.

Saturday, July 21 from 5 - 10 p.m.
Adults 21 years of age and older are invited to unlimited wine tastings from participating wineries for only $20.

All ages are welcome to attend IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, enjoy the entertainment, take in unique art and visit the District’s shops and restaurants.

There is NO admission cost to any of our festivals or events.

Photo identification will be required for all guests who wish to participate in the tasting.

Many of the Carmel Arts & Design District boutiques and merchants will host special sales or promotions during the festival. All ages can enjoy the District’s galleries, shops, restaurants and entertainment at Art of Wine.

Cash and credit cards will be accepted to purchase the $20 tasting glass. If you wish to purchase by the glass or bottle from your favorite winery’s booth, instead of tasting, you can do that!

Please enjoy and act responsibly. With that in mind, we have convenient Uber and/or Lyft pick-up locations immediately outside the festival area.


Entertainment

Family and Friends

From the independent music mecca, Athens, GA, Family and Friends will captivate you with their alternative-Indie energy. Having just released their newest album “Felix Culpa” June 8th, Family and Friends continue to amplify their “good music, good people” mantra. With an upbeat, enthusiastic charm, their newest album explores the complications of life. Hot off the famed 3-day Athfest and having played at events that music-lovers flock to like “Summer Camp Fest,” they know how to connect with the audience and electrify the crowd with their rejuvenating sound. If you like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, you will love Family and Friends. Their national touring schedule has opened the door for them to share the stage with Oh Hellos and Judah & the Lion. Art of Wine is a great opportunity to catch a live show before they kick off their “Felix Culpa” tour this fall. Their devoted fan base pushed their popularity on Spotify to over 16,000 listens with their latest single “Amadeus.” Both on and off stage Family and Friends’ connection with each other and their fans reveals their eclectic whimsy and general fun-loving nature. Art of Wine is thrilled to host this up-and-coming band right before they headline at the BraggJam Community Festival and Concert Crawl in Macon, GA. The genuinely welcoming chemistry between Mike, Casey, Tuna, Ryan, Alejandro, and JP is undeniably refreshing. For more insight into the band check out their interview at abeerwiththeband.com.

Family and Friends will appear on the main stage at 8:00 p.m. on South Range Line Road.

    Art of Wine

    In honor of our 10th annual Art of Wine Festival, here are 10 things to know about Art of Wine:

    1. This is our 10th annual IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine!

    2. You DO NOT need to purchase a tasting glass to enjoy the wineries. If your favorite winery is at our festival, you might be able to go directly to that winery. Most wineries (with the proper licensure) will be selling wine by the bottle or glass.

    3. There are wonderful food and beverage options to choose from. Click Here.

    4. You do not have to be 21 to enjoy the festival. You do have to provide identification if you choose to purchase a wine tasting glass or buy any alcohol.

    5. Rain or shine the festival still goes on!

    6. Look for the water station located on North Range Line Road for complimentary bottled water for our guests.

    7. We are proud to have IU Health North Hospital as a partner, but please note the event is in the Carmel Arts and Design District, not the hospital.

    8. There will be many photo opportunities throughout the festival. Peace Water Wine will have their signature VW bus, “Reggie” out. You will also find a number of Carmel Arts and Design District’s statues like the police officer at the intersection of Main Street and the Monon. Be sure to tag @carmelartdesign on Instagram!

    9. We are a destination event! In its ten year history we’ve welcomed guests from Canada to California.

    10. Please drink responsibly. We will have designated locations for Uber and Lyft immediately outside of the festival footprint.
