WineShare is a unique networking opportunity that takes place from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the first Friday of each month. This event is held within rotating locations in Downtown Joplin and is sponsored by a local business.

It is free to attend and everyone over the age of 21 is welcome. Attendees bring a bottle of wine or a favorite craft beer to share and can spend the evening enjoying the company of other downtown enthusiasts. Light snacks will be available.

Lori Haun, Executive Director of Downtown Joplin Alliance says, “May is National Preservation Month, so we are kicking it off in style with a WineShare at the Pennington Lofts, a property that is a great example of adaptive reuse and using historic tax credits to provide more housing in our downtown corridor. Come see for yourself and pick up some Lofts Tour tickets while you’re here!”
