Downtown Winchester is gearing up for another memorable holiday season. We’re encouraging people to experience the holiday season downtown by exploring the city’s unique shops and restaurants, and enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of our neighborhood.
So you don’t miss the holiday happenings in downtown Winchester this season, Winchester First has announced a schedule of events and activities planned throughout downtown.
The Winchester Art Guild has announced Carol Berry as the designated Artist Of The Month for November. A “meet the artist” reception will be held at the 18 West Lex. Ave. Artisans Gifts & Gallery on Thursday, November 6, from 5-8 p.m. The event will feature an exhibit of Berry’s artworks as well as refreshments and live music.
The Winchester Art Guild is sponsoring an oil painting class by Jack Cochran of Lexington on Saturday, November 15, at the 18 West Lex. Ave. Artisans Shop. Cochran’s art takes many forms, primarily oil painting, but also includes drawing from life and watercolor paintings. He is a late-deafened person who states that the language of art is his visual communication mode. Cochran acquired B.A. and B.F.A. degrees from UK, and was the first deaf artist to receive a degree in art studio at the University of Kentucky, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2006. His artworks are exhibited at various galleries in the Bluegrass Region.
“Just when you thought Clark County, Kentucky couldn’t be any cheesier!”
Less than a year after introducing the BEER CHEESE TRAIL to the world, The Winchester-Clark County Tourism Commission is proud to announce the Trail is DOUBLING in size from four restaurant locations to eight.
Featured in Cooking with Paula Dean, Kentucky Monthly, and cincinattimagazine.com, the Trail has been conquered by “foodies” from coast to coast (17 cities in six states), as they have blazed their own trail to Clark County, Kentucky, the “Official Birthplace of Beer Cheese”. It really is, as signified by the signing of House Bill 54 by Governor Steve Beshear.
Hamon Haven Winery of Winchester will have its grand opening on Saturday, June 28 from 11:00am to 3:00pm. The owners Andy and Carrie Hamon invite everyone to sample the wines and tour the winery and vineyard.
Andy has had a dream of owning his own winery and vineyard since 1980. The dream started with making kit wines in their basement laundry room. That dream has expanded to a full fledged winery, and a one-acre vineyard.
