Corks, Forks, Rhythm & Brews, one of Alameda’s most exciting annual luxury events, will be back at Spirits Alley on October 7. The festival features California’s best wineries, spirits, and breweries, along with gourmet foods, restaurants, and live music—and all proceeds benefit the Alameda Boys & Girls Club (ABGC).
The event, which starts at noon and runs until 4 p.m., will be located at the City Hall West Parade Lawn, 950 West Mall Square, Alameda Point. The event features an optional VIP Experience, a craft beer garden, live entertainment, sampling, chefs, tastemakers, influencers, and an online auction.
The auction catalog includes a huge variety of possibilities, ranging from a 2024 Summer Concert Series (including wine) at Hannah Nicole Vineyards & Winery, tickets to the San Francisco Ballet, or a dinner box from Spinning Bones, to an autographed photo of Andre Iguodala, all kinds of wine, beer, and spirits, bowling passes, or a year of free pizza. Bidders can even sponsor Stand Up for Kids field trips, classes, and recreational activities. Bidders at the online auction must register their smart devices.
