Can I Get A Ticket If I Don't Plan On Drinking?

Can I Bring My Kids?

Definitely! This is a family-friendly event so kids with accompanied parents are welcome. They will not need a ticket to gain entry, only the accompanying guardian will need to purchase a ticket. 

Will There Be Food?

Absolutely, we'll have a wide variety of food vendors (which you can see here), and a standard ticket includes $10 Festival Bucks to spend at the food vendors. 

What Activities Are There?

There will be plenty of activities for you to enjoy at the Wine Fest.

  • A picnic blanket that you can spread out, so that your friends can comfortably join you. 

  • Sunscreen and sunglasses, this is a summer festival with a bright sun. While there will be plenty of trees and shade, sunglasses and sunscreen never hurt. 

  • Last but not least, water! There will be water available at the festival with a Hydration Station by 805 Pure Water & Costco, but having your own water bottle is handy. 

Can I Bring Outside Food Or Drinks To The Festival?
