Kyle Liechty is directing this event for the fourth time and is pleased for the continued expansion and support shown by the community over the past couple years.  “It has been exciting to see the insane growth in this event, as vendors have been responding all year to secure their spot at the 2016 event.  What we try to do is create and add elements to the forum that aren’t duplicated around the state, offering a wide range of attractions and booths that have something available and of interest to all festival guests.”

As the festival continues to expand, so does the need for volunteers. “Whether you are available for two hours or eight, like to socialize with guests while pouring wine or prefer assisting in the sales room behind-the-scenes, we certainly have a volunteer position for everyone,” Kyle shared.  The event simply could not happen without the commitment and assistance from volunteers, which adds to the operation and general hospitality presented at the event.

All proceeds from the festival (including bottle wine and beer sales) will benefit Museum programming.
