Wineries and vineyards will be sampling a wide array of varietals helping you taste and learn about each one. There is a nominal fee for tasting. Several maps will be available soon for downloading to help your navigate your way around for the day.
Where to Park – Plenty of free parking is available for this event.
Convenient Shuttle Locations – There are several shuttle stops and the shuttle will be running continuously from 1:30 – 8:30 pm for this event. We will be adding info on this soon.
How to pay the vendors – There is an onsite ATM, but you will be more prepared if you bring cash. Each winery, food or merchandise vendor sets their prices and you pay them directly. Tickets will be sold for beer and some vendors, including beer ticket sales, do not take credit.
What friends and family to bring – Bring the whole family and enjoy the beautiful outdoors and all that this event has to offer. Even your leashed, friendly dogs are welcome, however they cannot ride the shuttles and the park is not equipped with pet watering stations or rest areas. You will need to be prepared to clean up after your pets.
Lodging – Why not make a weekend of it? Our county’s southern charm, hospitality, and exceptional accommodations will allow you to round out your weekend with us. Between our lovely B&Bs [Loudoun Bed & Breakfast Guild], which represent diverse properties — from lovingly restored Victorians located in historic districts to luxury country estates situated on acres of farmland — to a number of hotels in the area, overnight lodging accommodations allow visitors to enjoy the weekend in Loudoun County.
Best Western in Leesburg is extending a rate of $119 – for the Festival! Book online here.
For your enjoyment & convenience – Bring chairs or blankets to sit on. The park offers plenty of shade under beautiful mature trees so there is no doubt that you will find a comfortable spot.
What is permitted in the gates – No outside alcohol is permitted in the event, no outside food (with the exception of VIP Ticket Holders and baby food). Please remember this is a food festival too and there will be scrumptious foods to try on site from vendors who have come just for you! You could leave snacks behind, go hands free and still have a full belly.
