How can wine walks help your business?

We’re about a month away from the start of our sixth Thirsty Third Thursdays wine walk season. These wine walks are scheduled from May-September with each month’s event taking place on the third Thursday of the month.

The wine walks are successful thanks to our participating businesses within the Main Street District.

Each year, during the wine walk season, over 2,000 people visit our downtown district and our businesses. Find out how you can take full advantage of being a part of this event and build your client base.

Main Street Gardnerville invites business owners and managers from our downtown district to a special event 5:30-7 p.m. April 24 at Sharkey’s Casino.

Whether you’re new to the event, or have been participating for years, make plans to join us to find out how you and your business can increase profitability by participating in wine walk events.

This gathering will focus on the marketing and promotion while participating in the wine walks.

Space is limited. RSVP for this event is required by Friday. You can RSVP through email to or by phone 782-8027. Light snacks and a no-host bar will be provided.

The purpose of these wine walks is to increase foot traffic within the Main Street District, and provide residents and visitors with the chance to see what downtown Gardnerville has to offer.

The money raised covers expenses and goes back into the community through other Main Street Gardnerville events and projects.

Main Street Gardnerville is a community based self-help program with various members of the community volunteering to revitalize the downtown.

Even though Main Street Gardnerville focuses strictly on the downtown district, the program benefits the entire community and surrounding areas.
