Via Umbria Georgetown French Market Raffle

Each spring, the Book Hill neighborhood of Georgetown celebrates the annual Georgetown French Market. In 2016, the 13th annual springtime open-air market expands to a three-day festival featuring sidewalk sales April 29 through May 1. While others will celebrate with French fare, merchandise, and live music, Via Umbria will honor the occasion with a special Italian menu, a limited selection of fine French wine, and a fabulous cooking class and dinner on Friday May 29. And if that's not enough, during our special French Market celebration, you can enter our raffle for a chance to win fantastic Italian prizes! 

To enter, simply visit Via Umbria during the Georgetown French Market celebration and make a purchase. Each purchase of $10 will gain you one raffle ticket. And if you happen to have an Italian shopping spree (which we absolutely recommend!), you will definitely increase your odds of winning a guest spot on our Umbria Food & Wine Tour in October!
