Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival

Net proceeds benefit Lydia Place, Our Tree House, Growing Veterans, and Brigadoon Service Dogs Veterans Programs.

How can you help? Volunteer with us by emailing Lindsey at lindseyv@lydiaplace.org, or call us at 360.671.7663 ext. 2005 for tickets! We have to sell 40 as a partnering agency.

Taste more than 150 wines at Northwest Washington’s only judged wine competition. The Festival will include both a public wine tasting and the announcement of all medal-winning wines entered in an earlier judged competition. The Festival and judging are open to up to 50 wineries from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia.

On-site festival wine store to purchase favorites! Enjoy appetizers as well as complimentary samples from Bellingham Coffee Roasters, Cosmos Bistro, Lovitt Restaurant, 9Restaurant, The Vault, B-Town Kitchen and Raw Bar, Pierside Kitchen and so much more.

Whether you’re a serious wineophile or have only limited experience with wines, the Festival is a great opportunity to meet winemakers, have a nosh or two, and sample an amazing selection of Pacific Northwest wines!

Brewers by the Bay

How can you help? Buy a ticket and enjoy a brew, good eats, and live music!

This year Bellingham Bay Rotary Club has significantly committed proceeds from the 2017 Brewers By The Bay event to benefit Lydia Place and Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services capital projects as well as helping many other youth and family-focused charities throughout Whatcom County.

In addition to the fine microbrews of the Northwest, they will feature food trucks and live music at a fabulous outdoor summer venue.
