Everything You Need to Know About the Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights Festival

Get your ticket for this year’s Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights Festival. Throw on your scarf and cardigan and enjoy the colors of Christmas while sipping on bubbling champagne and touring through the Village of Baytowne.

  • Toast Under the Tree

Nothing says “good tidings” like a flute of fizzy champagne while basking in the white lights. The annual affair includes labels from all around the world, including the French estate wine by Gérard Bertrand and the classic pop of Moët and Chandon. If champagne isn’t to your liking, indulge in sweet Rosé or cheeky Prosseco. 

And no fine wine would be complete without decadent hors d’oeures to boot. Sample some of Baytowne’s best restaurants during your trip to the festival. The chef-crafted appetizers will satisfy any foodie’s expectations. 

  • Baytowne Wharf Tree Lighting

Your ticket to the Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights Festival grants you access to the very first Baytowne tree lighting of the season. Grab a glass of bubbly, a few snacks, and find your spot under the branches of the towering tree. 

The official tree lighting ceremony takes place during the Here Comes Santa Clause celebration at the end of November. To ensure that the community event goes off without a hitch, visitors of the wine and food festival witness the spectacularly choreographed “12 Nights of Lights” show.    

  • Festival Happenings

In addition to the light show and champagne tastings, the festival hosts a stage for live music and an abundance of carolers. There’s no reason to be a Grinch this season with a holly jolly visit to Baytowne Wharf’s Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights Festival.
