MCKINLEYVILLE – The place to be on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 4 to 8 p.m. will be downtown McKinleyville for the 2018 Corks, Forks and Kegs event, a beer and wine walk with food tastings.

This promises to be a great time to mix, mingle and share an evening with your family, friends and neighbors. There are 15 businesses that will open their doors to provide locations to partake of some tasty beverages and food.

How does it work? You will begin by checking in at one of the check-in booths located in the McKinleyville Shopping Center and the BMW of Humboldt Bay parking lot.

Each participant will receive an event pass, a map of all locations to visit and a commemorative tasting glass. You will then take a casual stroll with family, friends and neighbors through McKinleyville, stopping at all 15 host businesses to taste a variety of beers, wines and ciders.

There will also be food tastings at all locations! This is a prime opportunity to get to know local business owners in our community who open their doors for this event.

If you would prefer to be chauffeured to the tasting locations, you can take a ride on the “people mover” provided by McKinleyville Ace Home & Garden Center.

Pre-sale tickets are $35 and designated driver tickets are $25. You can buy tickets online at with a $3 processing fee. You can also purchase your tickets in person at Tri Counties Bank or at the chamber office, both at 1640 Central Ave. Tickets purchased the day of the event will go up by $5 each.
