The 30th annual Alpen Wine Fest returns on Sept. 2 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Village at Squaw. The event will feature an all-inclusive wine tasting, live music from Beyond the Rails and a silent auction. This year, to celebrate the 30th anniversary sparkling wines will also be among the offerings of the participating wineries. All proceeds benefit Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, an organization that delivers health and wellness education program to help families living with MS thrive.

Tickets for unlimited wine tastings are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Guests who purchase the unlimited wine-tasting ticket receive a crystal souvenir glass. The event is open to all ages but tickets holders for wine tasting must be age 21 or older.
