Poverty Bay Wine Festival 2020

The Rotary Club of Des Moines and Normandy Park and Destination Des Moines invites you to help us celebrate the 16th annual Poverty Bay Wine Festival in its new home, the Highline College Pavilion!  This unique, beautiful and secure facility is located in the heart of the Highline Campus in Des Moines, Washington.  

This is your chance to get close and personal with renowned local winemakers from over twenty of Washington State's finest wineries. The wine tastings will be flowing and you will have a chance to experience wines of all varietals. 


The Poverty Bay Wine Festival remains the South End's premier wine tasting event and this year will see the return of our wine shop, which provides attendees with the opportunity to purchase any of the wines served at the event.

100% of the net revenues generated by this event are used to fund the charitable activities of the Rotary Club of Des Moines and Normandy Park and Destination Des Moines. Parking is available in the Des Moines Marina and a free shuttle service will run from the Des Moines Marina to the Wine Festival both days.

Wine Festival Tickets $30.00 ($25.00 advance purchase) includes six tasting tokens (tastings range from 1 - 3 tokens). Additional tasting tokens available for $1.00.  

Designated Driver tickets can also be purchased for $10.00 at the door.

Must be 21 or over to attend and no pets are allowed.  Please bring your IDs as IDs will be checked at the door.
