It’s almost time for the 3rd Annual Adirondack Wine & Food Festival, and we can’t wait!

The 2017 festival will include almost 20 more craft beverage and food vendors than in previous years and a dedicated tent for kids to take a break with their parents. Adirondack chairs will also be sprinkled in seating groups throughout the festival grounds for a fun, relaxed weekend enjoying all the local food and beverage industry has to offer.

“This festival celebrates the bounty of amazing craft beverages and locally made foods that New York has to offer and we’re excited to report that we will have more vendors and variety than ever before,” said owner Sasha Pardy in a statement (Pardy is also co-owner and president of the Festival’s presenting sponsor, Adirondack Winery of Lake George).

“Where else can you discover your new favorite locally made wine, beer, vodka, cider, cheese, salsa, olive oil, garlic sauce, hot pepper jelly, kettle corn or ice cream all in one place? Attendees also love that our food trucks offer a variety of cuisine from classic barbecue and gourmet burgers to empanadas and gyros.” Pardy said in a statement.

This year the SUNY Adirondack Foundation will be the official beneficiary of the festival, receiving a portion of the ticket sales from the event. “SUNY Adirondack Foundation is great to work with and the perfect fit, with the College’s growing Culinary Arts Program,” said Stephanie Howard, Festival Coordinator, in a statement. The Culinary Arts Program Faculty and Students will even be at the festival showcasing their skills with Cooking Demonstrations under a special tent!
