The Historic Downtown Chelan Association is proud to announce the launch of our 2nd fundraising event.
On Saturday, March 17th from 1pm-4pm, we are inviting guests to join us on the 1st annual Lake Chelan Taste of the Irish through historic downtown Chelan. The event is similar to the Sip & Stroll; however, because it’s St. Patrick’s Day – guests will be enjoying tastes of Ales & Whiskey! We are looking for up to nine locations to host a brewery and one larger location for the whiskey tasting.
Guests will receive (6) 5oz ale tastes and if they choose to add on the whiskey tasting, (4-5) .25oz tastes of whiskey.

We will also be highlighting the downtown restaurants or businesses who have special Irish dishes or activities – so let us know what you’ve got planned!

Details: March 17th, 1pm – 4pm
