Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest
Celebrate the bounty of wine, food and fun in the Hudson Valley at the Hudson Valley Wine and Food Festival held at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds!
The Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest is back! Celebrating and featuring hundreds of wines from all over New York and the world, with more than 100 gourmet specialty food, fine art, and lifestyle vendors. Make sure to come hungry because throughout the festival there will be food samplings from some of the region’s best restaurants! Filled with live entertainment, seminars, and vendors, there will be something to do, eat, buy, see, and learn from start to finish!
Since 2001 the Hudson Valley Wine and Food Festival maintains a sharp focus on the wine – highlighting Hudson Valley and New York State wineries. Cideries, distilleries and craft beers will also be represented. Since the Fest is a New York Farm Market, it allows wineries to sell wine by the bottle directly from the winery! Featured foods from unique gourmet specialty food vendors will also be spread throughout the festival. Food selections will range from farm-fresh cheeses and meats to pasta, soups, pastries and baked goods. With food trucks and food concessions offering more unique foods, this festival makes sure you will never go hungry!
Along with sampling and buying food and wine, the Fest also provides information about wine and food. There will be Cooking demonstrations and Food and Wine seminars which will educate guests’ minds, noses, and palates. They will also learn about choosing, serving, tasting, and storing wine. Visitors can take the opportunity to meet and talk with winemakers from some of New York’s best wineries, a rare and special opportunity you won’t want to miss!
