Winefest Des Moines is selling tickets for events between today and June 12, which include the annual Lawn Party, a community tasting featuring Ballet Des Moines, and a couple of virtual parties. But act fast: Some of the events have already sold out.

The event kicks off today with Toasting Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Des Moines Heritage Center in the East Village. Tickets are $110 and include a host of wines to try with paired appetizers from Gateway Market. The Lawn Party, one of the most popular events, takes place from noon to 3 p.m. on June 6. Included in the ticket price is a picnic from Tangerine Food Co., which has two packages at $25 and $35. There will also be live music and samples of local beverages.

If you’re interested in participating at home, Sips and the City (3:30-5:30 p.m., June 11) and the Grand Tasting (2-4 p.m., June 12) are virtual this year. Both have wine tasting packages for two, four or eight people with appetizers and desserts from five fabulous establishments.
