A few quick, evocative descriptions – a world of fun and flavor on tap for you! A wine festival, and more than a wine festival, this is a day dedicated to You, and a good time you’ll remember all year. 

If you want the experience of tasting some of the very best New York State has to offer in food, spirits, wines, and specialty beverages, it will be there! But if your idea of a good time is some music, dancing, drinks and a chance to party, you won’t be disappointed!

Maybe a glass of wine or specialty cocktail brings out the artist in you – Paint ‘n’ Sip will be ready to entertain your inner Picasso! And if your idea of a great time is a chair massage, photos with friends, a hearty specialty meal from a food truck or a taste of this and a bite of that along with a game of chess or checkers – it will all be there at the 2024 Syracuse Wine Festival!

The best thing about The Wine Festival is that it simply spreads out for you, a celebration of some of the best things about New York State and the people in it – the producers, growers, brewers and vintners; the specialty food makers; the people whose mission it is to give all of us a great time.

Tim and Jenny Cinaciola, the dedicated and experienced team from Craftproducers who “cooked up” this festival, are enthusiastic about the event, promising that while the name features “wine,” and the festival offers unlimited samples of delicious wines, their goal in creating the event was to provide all the ingredients and let each festival-goer create their individual idea of a memorable experience. In fact, the festival provides a wine glass with a memorable insignia, and then turns you loose to fill it as you wish. You’ll also enjoy the many food and novelty items featured at the festival – confectionaries, beauty items, sauces, soaps, candles, jerkies, cheese – and much, much more.

No festival is complete without music – and while dedicated DJ Tom Soccocio, Jr. of Perfect Sounds DJ Music Entertainment spins energizing tunes, you can step onto the dance floor or into the photo booth – complete with a suite of fun and funny props – to record your good times with friends. You’ll go home with a printed photo strip, and you can text or email your images to let your out-of-town friends know what they’re missing!

And if you end up hungry for more than a snack, you can stop by at one of the three fabulous food trucks parked just outside the venue, and purchase a full and tasty meal.

It’s all there for you – all you have to do is go!
