Adirondack Wine and Food Festival Ticket Details
Every year I mark off one particular weekend on my calendar for the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival in Charles R. Wood Festival Commons. With the weekend approaching quicker and quicker (only a little over a month away), more and more announcements are coming out over what you can expect that weekend.
You can see the initial announcements as well as some of my coverage of years past in my previous post. It seems as if, though, they just keep making it bigger and bigger. They announced 80+ vendors for this year’s festival, all relatively local and all adding up to a great time. This year, they have announced 23 wineries, 8 distilleries, 4 breweries, 3 cideries, 23 artisan food vendors, 6 specialty vendors, 8 food trucks, 1 local restaurant and culinary demonstrations from SUNY Adirondack students. For a full list of vendors, check out the official website.
A ticket to the festival gets you a souvenir glass, a welcome bag, a program to take notes and navigate as well as unlimited samples from many of the various vendors. Not drinking? No worries, there’s the option of a Designated Driver ticket which still allows you samples of food and some non-alcoholic beverages.
They have already sold more than 1,300 tickets and they haven’t even really started their marketing campaign so if you want to make sure you’re at one of the best events in the area, get your tickets now because this event has been known to sell out! The new addition this year is the 2-day value ticket. For a discounted rate, you’re able to attend both days of the festival as well as a special wine tote bag, a coupon book, wine glass holder necklace and bottle of water. The best part? A portion of all ticket sales goes directly to the SUNY Adirondack Foundation to help with the Culinary Arts Program.
