Wine & Food Celebration
October 25th - 2 p.m. -5 p.m. 

The Wine & Food Celebration returns to the White River Conference Center this year on Saturday, October 25th from 2 to 5 pm. Over the past 26 years, this event has expanded to now include hundreds of wines, delicious food from Springfield’s finest restaurants, craft beer and specialty cocktails. Attending the Wine & Food Celebration is a great way to have a memorable, fun-filled, delicious day and support Ozarks Public Television at the same time! All proceeds benefit educational children’s programming.

OPT reaches approximately 50,000 kids in Southwest Missouri each week with educational programming based on the latest independent research which teaches the basics of math, science, and reading. OPT invests more than a quarter of its budget – over $600,000 each year – on children’s programming. Because OPT is available at no cost, it reaches ALL families, regardless of income levels.
