The 9th Annual Traverse City Wine Festival on the historic front lawn at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is this Saturday, June 24th from 3:00 to 9:00pm. This year’s event has been rebranded with some additional changes.
Dylan and Ashley Davis, who own a business that sells products to the wineries, are coordinating this year’s festival in an effort to keep this great annual event alive. Previously, the event was coordinated by the Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Association, which has redirected its focus on some exciting new initiatives that better match its mission.
Due to the support of the wine trails and wineries, the event will continue to showcase craft beverages, food and music of the region. The biggest change to this year’s festival is a new focus on dedicated hard cider vendors with cider on tap in addition to featured wineries from Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission Peninsula and the surrounding area.
The event attracts locals as well as tourists to enjoy great music, wine and food in one of the greatest atmospheres around. The new coordinators have been able to cut various costs to get the ticket price for attendees to $35, which includes a souvenir wine glass, three tasting tokens and all-day musical entertainment. Tickets and additional information is available at www.traversecitywinefestival.com.
