More Sunday-Only Fun
Festival-goers can enjoy a full schedule of culinary demonstrations all weekend long, however, on Sunday you can take part in the Iron Chef-Style Competition. Visitors get to taste and judge themselves! Festival organizers expect to announce additional competition activities for Sunday’s schedule as well.
The Adirondack Wine & Food Festival wants to ensure all members of the family can attend, and that’s why they make it a family-friendly event. Sunday’s kid fun includes a schedule of magicians, a balloonist, and music, plus they’ll have a kids tent with activities.
Smaller Crowds Means Shorter Lines & More Tastings for You
Sunday has historically been the less crowded day of the weekend-long festival, and event organizers believe 2019 will be the same. Here’s why this is advantageous to you: smaller crowds means shorter lines, more tastings for you, and more of an opportunity to interact with the vendors.
You’ll be able to get your samples quickly, enjoy more tastings than you would otherwise, and you can chat with vendors about their products. Learn about a wine you’ve never heard of before, or get tips on how to best enjoy cheese you’re sampling.
There are over 120 wineries, breweries, distilleries, cideries, artisan food, crafts, food trucks, and more!
