Admission into the tent is free; participation is $8, which includes a
commemorative glass and five sample tickets. Additional tickets may be
purchased for 50 cents each. Each winery will have bottles available
for take-home sales.
The fun begins each day with the tent opening at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday,
Aug. 28, and Sunday, Aug. 29.
On Saturday the Illinois Brassworks will provide entertainment from 7 to 11
p.m. The fantastic "Who Let the Dogs Out" art deco dog auction will
at 8 p.m.
The 12 fiberglass dogs have been uniquely decorated by local artists. Each
piece of art tells its own story. Their beauty and charm are sure to warm
their way into your heart and home.
The dogs have been on display in store windows throughout the downtown. They will be moved to The Art of Wine tent on Saturday.

Two dogs will compete in a silent auction. The remaining 10 will be in a
live auction. If you are unable to attend when the 10 are auctioned off, feel free to place a
silent bid, or you may make arrangements with the front desk to participate
in the live auction over the phone.
Sunday's entertainment will be a first for Lincoln. There will be a grape
stomp competition at 1 p.m.
All this, plus wine classes, promises a fun weekend at the Lincoln Art and
Balloon Festival's Art of Wine.
