Monday, March 23, 2020- We are currently less than five weeks away from the original dates for WineFest 2020. We are hopeful and optimistic that the measures being taken will successfully mitigate this crisis, that the governor will be able to lift the ban on public events.
The WineFest team has decided to reschedule the festival to the weekend of October 3rd & 4th, 2020. We are confident that this extra time will allow everyone to recover from this terrible situation. We want this to be the best festival yet!
Although WineFest is a usually a "no refund" event, we are updating our policy due to the current situation. In the near future, our online ticket provider will offer ticketholders the opportunity to transfer their tickets to the new dates or request a full refund. You will have a limited amount of time to make that choice, so please be prompt when you receive the notification. All of these changes will be communicated via this website, social media outlets and direct email to current ticketholders with the next 72 hours.
All the best,
The WineFest Team
