University City Partners announced new dates for its signature wine festival after it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The fourth annual University City Wine Fest will take place Sept. 16-20 at multiple locations around the lake and boardwalk at the Shoppes at University Place.

What’s new?

  • The main event will feature a variety of wines from several regional wineries, but three new events are on the schedule. Grab your +1 for a paddle boat ride on the lake, enjoy a five-course meal at an intimate dinner party, or do some shopping while supporting local businesses. 
  • Expect limited capacity at events to accommodate for social distancing. Guests won’t be able to purchase same-day tickets.
