We don’t want to leave out the eating establishments in the District, there’s something for every taste bud. Many establishments will be providing “grab-and-go” items for sale to help curb that appetite while on the walk. If you prefer a more relaxed setting, to enjoy a nice sit-down menu style meal- that is available too! Many restaurants and clubs will be open for the evening including Simple Table, Taste of China, Knights of Columbus, Fort Diner, River Rocks Bar & Grill, Lost Duck, & Choung Gardens to name a few.
The Wine & Beer Walk makes for a perfect evening with loved ones or a bubbling night with friends and family. If you have been here before, we know you will come again. If you haven’t attended the award-winning Fort Madison Wine & Beer Walk, see for yourself how the event puts the spirit back into iconic Avenue G in downtown Fort Madison for the holiday season! See you on November 22nd from 5 – 8 p.m.! All proceeds benefit Fort Madison beautification projects.
