Sutter Street Sip and Stroll returns April 6.  Last year sold out quickly, and it looks like it’s headed that way again.

Sip and Stroll gives you an opportunity to try local wines and nibbles in local shops in Folsom’s Historic District.

Wine, food, and live music in a beautiful setting. Who could ask for more?

SO vip and early tickets are sold out.  I'm confused. Under VIP it includes music, wine holder, food from gas light and champagne.  Don't the regular tickets include food and music?

 

These events seem like they are getting pretty pricey for what is, for all intents and purposes, a showcase for various vendors to introduce people to their products.

At this price point for regular tickets (45.00) I will drop at least a hundred dollars for 3 hours of tastings for my wife and I. OR, I could drive up the hill and get pretty much unlimited tastings and a nice dinner for same,  OR, I could get two bottles of decent wine and an apps plate at many of the local establishments.

 

I don't know.... I used to really enjoy these things like the Mother's Day Art and Wine walk in EDH.  Those tickets used to be 20.00. The festivals down on the river were 20-25, and even local (non Folsom) brews fests were in the 30 dollar range. I'm not cheap,but I do look for a good value. Just seems a little pricey to me. To be fair, I'm sure folks would have a good time if this is more in line with what they feel is reasonable for entertainment expense.  Only 184 tickets left, so maybe I am the outlier...

 

Addendum:  I also think the marketing on these generally suck. I want the website to tell me EXACTLY what is being offered. Which food vendors? What are they offering? Which wineries? What are they offering? What band/music? Etc, etc.

 

I hope I didn't come off as too negative. I DO appreciate you letting us know about events around town. Just was surprised at the cost.

All of the attendees get the glass, wine, food and music. VIP gets a private check-in, with food and champagne. 

 

Yes, events are getting pricier all the time.  In this case, I think it's due in part that space is limited. I think they sell about 400 to 500.

 

Still a good value from my perspective as there will be 20 wine and food stations, which is more than I can handle.

 

The Eldo thing is $25 this year, but they can sell thousands.

I just wanted to add that something like Sutter Creek's "Ladies Night" would probably work well in old Folsom.  People (women generally) visit the different stores after their normal business hours and get complimentary wine/snacks and a raffle ticket for each venue they visit. At the end of the evening, a raffle drawing is held and prizes from the various merchants are won.  Seems like everyone has a good time. The bars get crowded with husbands though ;)

Thanks for the update Steve!  Yeah, it is all subjective as for what constitutes "value."  Tons of people would roll their eyes at VIP airshow tickets, or Hangtown 3 day passes... and alternatively, tons would spend many hundreds to see a particular band without batting an eye.  It's all relative to what is important to you I guess.

 

 I really wanted to see 2 Cellos again this year (seen them twice), but figured it would be 500.00 or more depending on lodging. That was beyond the line I was willing to cross. Meh. To each their own. I will say that all this thinking about wine has got me thirsty though...
