Pawpaw Happy Hour says

Wigle Whiskey has been developing a pawpaw spirit, and in the process, has gone crazy for pawpaws. Crazy enough that we are hosting a three-day celebration of pawpaws September 23rd-25th.

September 25th, day 3 of the festival, will focus on a Pawpaw Marketplace for purchasing crafts, food, beverages, art, and more, all inspired by or made with pawpaws!

That’s where you come in.

Never heard of a pawpaw? No problem! We’ll teach you.
Already a pawpaw nut? Come share in the enthusiasm!

Join us for a Pawpaw Happy Hour on May 31st at the Barrelhouse & Whiskey Garden to learn how you can be a part of the Pawpaw Marketplace!

Come dive into the world of this forgotten native North American fruit over pawpaw cocktails & light hors d’oeuvres in the whiskey garden. There will be plenty of time to meet and greet with fellow makers, artisans, and pawpaw enthusiasts!

Andrew Moore, author of the book Pawpaw: In Search of America's Forgotten Fruit will be our guest speaker for the evening. Michael Foglia and Elisa Miranda, Chatham University Food Studies students and developers of Wigle's pawpaw liqueur, will also be on hand to share their pawpaw experience.

Our goal is to inspire you to be a part of the Pawpaw Marketplace on September 25th! All vendors are welcome as long as they are vending at least one product that is pawpaw-focused. We will follow-up with all Pawpaw Happy Hour attendees in July with a short application to vend at the Pawpaw Marketplace.

The Pawpaw Festival will be heavily promoted by Wigle, and we’ve already received enthusiasm from press to write about both the pawpaw liqueur & the Pawpaw Festival. We will promote participating vendors on marketing materials.
