How it works

From 5:00-6:00 PM, check in at the Sterling Main Street office in the Sanborn Building, 15 East 3rd Street, Sterling, IL, where you'll pick up your sampling glass, tasting guide, and other goodies.

Tickets are limited, so be sure to get them in advance, but you will still need to check in before you get started on your Walk.
