This is an annual event where there are two days usually in September (this time it is 15 and 16 September) where they have many tents and vendors who will be displaying their stuff and samples, mostly dips. You can taste all the wines and there is no limit to how many times you go to taste the wines.
In the past, they also had helicopter rides for $25. They have music and a great atmosphere. People bring their lawnchairs and we can gather in a circle. There will be many such circles. It is a very friendly atmosphere. It is from noon until 5 pm.
I plan to go there on the Saturday, the 15th of September.
We shall have a Meetup sign (I am also organizing another group called MeetinPhiladelphia and we can all join together). There may be just a handful of people from that group.
Please purchase your tickets online and indicate that you have done so in your RSVP (you can update that after your purchase). They are $15 in advance and will be $20 at the door. The advance purchase can be done only until 2 September. Please read their website carefully.
Bring sunscreen, lawnchair, coolers with non alchoholic beverages and water, picnic food or money to purchase food, and money for events, and purchasing wine if you wish to.
They have free Parking there. Since it is a long way for some folks, maybe you will want to carpool. Please use the forum here to hook up for carpooling.
This will be a fun time together.
