Cheers! It’s Time for GrapeFest 2013!

Tonight begins one of our favorite annual festivals— GrapeFest!

GrapeFest, the largest wine festival in the Southwest United States, is the place to discover and try new wines and even rediscover some of your favorite varietals. Along with celebrating the fruit of the vine, this four-day annual festival offers a variety of activities and events, including more than 95 opportunities to see live entertainment on five stages throughout the four-day festival.

The Dallas Observer has a great list of the top things you need to know about GrapeFest 2013:

1. The People’s Choice Wine Tasting is where all the fun is. It’s the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the U.S., with more than 140 wines from 35 Texas wineries in ten different categories. Tickets are $20 an you’ll get a booklet to guide you through the wines, along with the ballot. Get tickets in advance online.

2. There’s an early bird special if you’re pinching pennies: admission is free Thursday and Friday until 5 p.m. If you’re ready to go all in, a weekend pass is $18; children five and under are gratis (kids, you say? Yes, there are actually a lot of kid activities). Or it’s $8 for one day.

3. In addition to usual festival-type fare (funnel cakes and corn dogs) there are also fajitas, crepes, barbecue, fancy potatoes, smoked buffalo brats and other things. Or, again, funnel cakes … and wine … all weekend.

4. There are actually free shuttles from the festival to local wineries on both Saturday and Sunday. So after perusing the vendors there, you can catch a ride to nearby winery tasting rooms, then back to the big event. You’ll just be up to your eyeballs in grapes.

5. The Killdares are playing Thursday night at 8:30 on the Bud Light stage. Yes, Celtic music at a Texas wine festival on the Bud Light stage. It feels contrary in many ways, but just let it happen. Remember, we’re not bickering about petty things anymore.
