Thousands pack into downtown Kingsport for annual wine festival

KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – Over 16 wineries traveled across the state to bring their samples to Kingsport’s second annual wine festival. Sherri Mosely with the Downtown Kingsport Association says that could have a big economic impact on the area.  More than a thousand were in attendance at the festival in downtown Kingsport.

“The stores are open. They’ll come down here hopefully they’ll see something they didn’t see before and come down and spend more money,” Sherri Mosley said.

The annual wine festival is the biggest fundraiser for the Downtown Kingsport Association. Tickets for the event costs between $25 and $30. Organizers are hoping to keep it going each year.
