Where & When

In 2019, the Wenatchee Wine and Food Festival transforms Wenatchee’s Town Toyota Center into a wine lover’s paradise on Saturday, August 24th from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Wenatchee, in North Central Washington, is central to the top wineries in the area. Each year, the wine festival’s competition draws more than 200 entries from nearby vineyards.

What to Expect

During the festival, attendees have the opportunity to taste locally made wine, hand-crafted spirits, craft brews, and delicious food. The evening also features the only professionally judged wine competition in the area. Bring your significant other and enjoy a night of live music from the Confluence Jazz Trio while you discover your new favorite wine in Washington state.

Ticket prices are $45 for general admission and $75 for VIP entry. Tickets are all-inclusive, so you don’t have to pay extra for wine tastings and food inside the event. VIP ticket holders benefit from early entry, a private lounge, and a swag bag that includes a bottle of wine. The proceeds from the event benefit the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.
