The acclaimed Naples Grape Festival, a five-time recipient of “The Best Festival in the Finger Lakes” award, is making its much-anticipated return.
Set to happen this weekend, the festival will be hosted at the Memorial Town Hall and Naples High School from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is planned to proceed regardless of weather conditions, promising a plethora of activities and entertainment for the community.
Festival-goers can look forward to an extensive range of tastings and bottle sales from an array of wine producers, craft beer brewers, cider makers, and distilleries at the Brahm Moore Beverage Garden. Tickets to the beverage garden are priced at $20 each or two for $35. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to savor live music performances, explore arts & crafts, and relish diverse food options from various vendors, showcasing high-quality handmade goods and an assortment of culinary delights.
Highlighting the event is the Naples Greatest Grape Pie Contest, scheduled to commence at noon on Saturday, where anonymous entries will be evaluated based on taste, texture, and appearance, with awards and prizes to be presented to the winners. The remaining slices of grape pie will be available for purchase at $5 per slice or $10 for three slices.
