Plans are underway as the De Soto Rotary Club plans to host the 2016 Winesong at Riverfest.  This signature fundraising event consists of sampling Kansas wines.  This year 15 wineries of Kansas will be featured.  Music will be offered by both The Crumpletons and Sons of Brasil.  There will be artists and vendors at the event.  This year food trucks will complement the appetizers that are offered.  Tickets are $25.00.  One must be 21 years of age to enter the event.  Tickets and more information can be found at www.winesongatriverfest.com
Winesong 2015 proceeds benefited three organizations.  Donations were made to Shelter Box, Friends of the Kaw, and The De Soto Kansas Food Pantry.  We thank all our volunteers, sponsors, and vendor participants. Looking forward to Winesong 2016.  Keep the date open for June 4th, 2016.
