New York’s pink wine festival, Sancerre, will have its own pavilion and pavilions for pink wines.
Boston’s new Pink Wine Fest is set to feature a pavilion of pink wines, a beer garden and live music.
The first event, slated for Oct. 2 at the Boston Botanical Garden, will feature five of Boston’s most iconic breweries, as well as a pavilium filled with live music and a live auction.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has called the event a chance to reconnect with a community that has been in the midst of the opioid epidemic.
The Pink Wine Festival is the brainchild of Boston resident and chef Ryan Broussard, who said he has been inspired by the Boston area’s history of pink wine and its history as the birthplace of pink beer.
“We wanted to bring the spirit of Pink Wine back to Boston,” Broustard said.
Tickets for the Boston Pink Wine festival go on sale Wednesday.
