Wine Down in the Parks 2024

Wine Down in the Parks is the SMPS’s spring showcase of not only three gorgeous San Marco parks, but many of our local San Marco vendors. All food, beverage, and music are provided by locals — the overwhelming majority of whom call San Marco home. Guests enjoy a music-filled evening of al fresco fun while supporting the continued maintenance, preservation, and improvement of San Marco’s historic parks.

Please join us to experience the charm of Whatley, Davin, and Balis Parks on this magical evening filled with live music, tapas, craft beer, wine, and cocktails from several of the neighborhood’s best bars, restaurants, and musicians. Each event stop will feature a different theme and flavor. And this year, with at least two local food and beverage partners per park and even more in the works, we know you’ll want to be there! 

When: Saturday, April 13, 2024, 4-7 P.M.
Where: Whatley Park, Davin Park, & Balis Park

Wine Down in the Parks is a pre-sale e-ticketed event. Your purchase confirmation serves as your ticket; there is no physical ticket. The SMPS will have a list of all purchased tickets, and check-in will be under the purchaser’s name. Ticket purchase includes access to all three private party stops, food, and beverage; no outside food or beverage is allowed. Identification will be checked upon entrance to the event. ALL attendees must bring valid identification. Wristbands must be worn at all times in order to receive food and beverage. Vendors reserve the right to refuse service to any attendee who is deemed too intoxicated or disruptive.

All attendees must be 21+ on 4/13/2024.
