Bring the entire family to celebrate the revitalization of Garden City, embodied by a piece of public art. Enjoy food and an adult beverage while you chat with the artists from Sector 17, who will have created the first Winery Mural. There will be wine and beer available from Cinder, Coiled, Telaya, Payette Brewing Co., Crooked Fence Brewing, and Split Rail. Cobby's Sandwich Shop and food trucks will be on hand to satisfy. Garden City artisans will be showing off their craft, and their passion for the potential of our area. Look forward to pottery, music, design, an outdoor kid's art station to keep the little ones engaged and inspired. Three buildings on the same block will be participating in this party: Cinder Winery’s building at 107 E. 44th St, Cobby's Sandwich Shop at 4348 Chinden Blvd., and Split Rail’s building at 4338 Chinden Blvd. Outdoor artist areas, as well as interactive stations for the kids, will be connecting all three buildings for a true "block party" experience! This is an all-ages event, with no fee for admission. Alcoholic beverages will only be served to those 21+ with valid ID.
