Maysvillle Uncorked returns


The 16th annual Maysville Uncorked is set for this Saturday, June 9.

The Maysville Players, sponsors of the event, have made some changes to the venue this year. It will still be held in the streets of Middle Market but will feature Kentucky craft beers in addition to the usual Kentucky wine vendors.

“This addition was made to increase the draw and make couples enjoy the event more,” one of the event organizers said. “In the past, lots of women enjoyed the wine, but some men enjoy a good beer so we felt this would make the event more enjoyable for all, while allowing Kentucky breweries to attend and our patrons to sample their products.”

Music will play throughout the day, beginning at 4 p.m. and continuing until 10 p.m. The Pedigos will play from 5-7 p.m., with a short break at 6:15 p.m. so that those interested can watch the third race in the Triple Crown which will be shown on stage courtesy of the City of Maysville. At 7:30 p.m., The Positive Movement Band from Cincinnati, will perform. This band will begin with music from the 1960s and 1970s, then move into the more current Bruno Mars era.

Pogue Distillery, one of The Players most loyal supporters, will be with us again this year offering tastings of their bourbons, in addition to Kentucky wineries including Redman Farms, our local Baker Bird, Stonebrook, Rosehill, and Old 502. Horseshoe Bend who has attended since the first Uncorked, will again be with us and will also be serving with wine slushes for those interested.

To round out the event, we will have Freid Fired Pottery, Rob Weingartner Art, Colonial Heights Pottery, Carrie Taylor Handmade Dried Wreaths, Scentsy products, Ryan Case’s Sink or Swim, and much more. New to the area is Damsel in Defense, a new business catering to women. ATT will also be on-hand with a charging station for those who need to charge their phones.

Food vendors (deSha’s, Day’s Fun Foods, Rick and Daphne Brown’s Treats, and Syleetos) will offer an array of items such as tortillas, steak, country ham, and pork tenderloin sandwiches, coconut chicken and stuffed mushrooms. Those with a sweet tooth can sample ice cream from Café Crème or homemade items such as cakes, pies, and candies.

As always, Uncorked wine glasses will be available for purchase for $5. Tasting costs are $10 for five wine or 10 beer tastings.

Hope to see you on Middle Market this Saturday!
