Adirondack Festivals LLC has made the difficult decision to postpone the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival again this year.
According to a recent press release, current regulations from the New York State Department of Health would require the festival to limit attendees to no more than 1,000 people per day. This would result in a lower attendance than the first festival in 2014. That has resulted in Adirondack Festivals LLC to postpone the 2021 festival to June 25th and 26th, 2022.
“The Adirondack Wine & Food Festival is an event meant to bring thousands of people together to sample the amazing wines, craft beverages and artisan foods that New York’s producers have to offer,” Festival Owner Sasha Pardy said. “The safety protocols in place discourage touching products, risk of cross contamination, standing in lines, congregating, etc. These protocols also increase vendors’ expenses and would severely change the flow and feel of the event that our attendees have come to know and love over the years.”
“We would rather wait for the COVID-19 situation to improve than put on an event that cannot meet the expectations of our attendees, vendors, and the community,” Pardy added. “We hope that our loyal attendees mark their calendars for the 2022 event!”
Tickets to the 2022 festival are expected to be available around the holiday season this year.
