Wine Country Harvest Festival Features Wine, Music, Art Shows, a 5K, and Grape Stomping by Rebecca Styn

This weekend, sample and sip from some great regional wineries during the 33rd Annual Wine Country Harvest Festival. The festival celebrating the largest grape-growing region in the East, runs all weekend long and will feature 12 wineries, 20 bands, free winery tours, art shows, grape stomping, a 5K run, and a cruise-in car show.

And that’s not all.

There will be a myriad of vendors and artisans, pony rides, a stunt show, and North East’s own version of America’s Got Talent.

Make sure to try a sweet (or dry) sampling of wine from 6 Mile Cellars, Arrowhead, Mazza, Courtyard, Presque Isle, Penn Shore, or several other wineries – all while enjoying the talent of the local bands. Some of the guest artists featured include: Poets and Thieves, Stilleto, the Michael Christopher Band, and the Duke Sherman Band.

In short: This weekend promises to be a treat for all of the senses.
