Taste of Winona

Taste of Winona has brought people from across the region to the Winona area for the past thirteen years. Each year, attendees get to experience the culture by trying a variety of local favorites from wine to cuisine while also enjoying live music. This year Taste of Winona is hosted at the Visions Event Center at Signatures Restaurant in Winona in their elegant banquet hall. As part of the Taste of Winona event, a silent and live auction is organized for attendees to bid on prizes such as art pieces, hotel stays, theater productions and the like. BidPal will be used to allow easy bidding and for those unable to attend– you can bid from anywhere! Each donation is valuable and a great addition to the auction as all proceeds will go directly towards creating matches and lifelong mentorships through Big Brothers Big Sisters. Building these relationships and hearing the success stories is the motivation for organizing these large events every year. Without the help of our partners, sponsors and generous donors, it would be much more difficult to accomplish. So we thank them all because they help a child find the confidence in their relationships and in school, but most importantly in themselves when they are paired with a positive mentor. They help start  something BIG.

Join us on August 4th at the Visions Event Center at Signatures Restaurant and experience a Taste of Winona.

Doors open at 5:00 pm ~ Tickets are $30 each or two for $50.
