Corkless Galena 2022

July 1, 2022

A festival of wine, food, music, art and fun.

Corkless Galena is a wine event in Galena, IL, and was held this year on Saturday, June 25, in Depot Park. The festival offered wines from Illinois’ vineyards, food from artisan food trucks, artists showcasing art, and Americana music. Musicians include Jordan Danielson & Jef Spradley, and at 3:00 pm, headliner Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts.  This is a must-attend event in Galena if you love wine and live music!

Attendees had the opportunity to meet eight vintners and six artists to discuss their craft. Upon entry, guests were given an etched wine glass with the Corkless logo.  Both wine and art were available for purchase.

Parking was easy and FREE and seating was available under a large covered tent so you could get out of the sun. Many brought their own chairs, small tents, small well-behaved dogs or canopy and spent the afternoon listening to music and enjoying regional wine.  Most of the visitors walked among the wineries & artists enjoying a glass, or sometimes a bottle, of wine.

Wineries: Galena Cellars, August Hill, Fergedaboudit, Prairie State, Lavender Crest, Sable Creek, West of Wise, and Massbach Ridge.

Participating food trucks: Birds, The Happy Hibachi, Celtic Kitchen, and Vesperman Farms.

Featured artists: Cindy Palmer Legate, Allison Poster, LeAnne Brietbach, Jenna Lueck, John Tapager, and Henry Matthiessen III.
