Huntsville Main Street to Hold Silent Auction at DBA Wine Down, Shop Small Event

The Huntsville Main Street Program will hold a special silent auction on Saturday, April 27 in conjunction with the annual Downtown Business Alliance “Wine Down, Shop Small” event, and the public is encouraged to attend.

The silent auction, as well as the main WDSS event, will be held on from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the downtown area. Several stores in the downtown will be participating in late night shopping, and some will have local artists demonstrating and displaying art. Selected stores will have a unique winery and restaurant in their shop, and maps and signage will be available to direct attendees.

“The Main Street silent auction will feature approximately 10 to 12 items, and the proceeds will benefit further beautification of downtown Huntsville,” said Kim McAuliffe, Main Street Coordinator. “We plan to make wine tours and tastings, gift certificates to area wineries, gift baskets from several downtown merchants, a one-night stay at Smither Bed and Breakfast and other items available for interested attendees to bid on.

“We’ll announce the winners around 8:30 p.m., giving everyone a chance to pick their favorite items and enjoy the rest of the event.”

Tickets for the event are on sale for $30 at Main Street and at several downtown businesses. On the day of the event, the price will increase to $40.

“The Wine Down, Shop Small event is unlike any other event we have in Huntsville,” McAuliffe said. “It’s something truly special and not to be missed by anyone, especially wine enthusiasts.”
