It's almost that time of year again! We're talking about grape harvest season. Wine lovers rejoice because there's going to be a massive wine festival in Arizona this month. This two-day wine festival will feature wine from 25 different wineries and you can even get a free chair massage from one of the on-site massage chairs!
On September 28-29 from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., you and your friends can go to one of Arizona's largest festivals. The event is free, but purchasing a ticket will get you six wine tasting tickets. If you buy your tickets online, it'll cost you $35 or you can pay at the event for $40 per ticket. You'll even get a commemorative wine glass to keep if you choose to purchase a ticket!
While you're enjoying your favorite glasses of wine, you can listen to live music, indulge in food from various food trucks, get your free chair massages, and more! You will find free parking around the event and if you want to bring your furry friend, you can.
The more the merrier at this event, bring your friends along for the fun! You can sip on different kinds of wines all day and buy a bottle to take home with you. If you can't decide between red or white wine, try them both!
On Sunday, Sept. 29 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. you can enjoy live music from the rock band, The Naughty Bits. This year will even feature the Plein Air Paint Out. It's where artists gather around the event and paint the landscape around them. You can even register to paint the scenery while you're at the event.
Wine is great by itself, but it's just as good with food. Thankfully there will be some food vendors there that will dish out some delicious eats that pair well with your wine. The food vendors include Wild Stampede BBQ, Merkin Pizza Wagon, Canyon Jack's Roadhouse, Wingfield Bread Company, and Farm a Go-Go.
Before you leave you can even shop around local vendors and take some goodies home with you. Some people love beer goggles, but we prefer wine glasses!
Price: $30-$40 per ticket
Location: Posse Grounds Park, Sedona, AZ
Why you should go: You and your friends can enjoy wine country in Arizona by sipping on some of the state's best wines! Good weather and wine go hand in hand.
