Experience the most anticipated wine festival around on Saturday, August 29 from 12noon to 6pm! For years, Roanokers have been asking to bring an annual wine festival back to town, so save the date! It's time for the 1st annual Blue Ridge Wine Festival! This year's festival will host 10 wineries with over 75 different wine varieties. Festival guests can enjoy the company of friends and family while sampling premium Virginia wines, listening to great bands, and perusing the offerings of food trucks and local vendors. The festival will also include a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate and include a complimentary wine glass (while supplies last), as well as a complimentary wine tasting at all winery booths.
