The annual Leland Wine & Food Festival takes place (as always) on the second Saturday in June. That's June 14, 2014.
Come enjoy a day in the Leland Harbor and Leland's historic Fishtown tasting wines from local wineries and tasting the specialties from local restaurants and vendors. There's also live music from Soul Patch in the park all day and of course plenty of beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Manitou Islands.
Admission is $15 and includes an etched wine glass and two tokens for wine tasting. Additional tokens are available and age 10-21, or non-drinkers are $10, and under 10 is free. Tickets are available at gate, Two Fish Gallery and The Riverside Inn in Leland or online. Advance tickets get you in "the fast line" so you might want to purchase now.
Food vendors accept cash only - a list of this year's participating wineries and food vendors is below.
There's also a new "Artscape" art & wine event Friday night from 5-8 pm at the Old Art Building in Leland. Local artists will be displaying 30 amazing paintings for you to vote on to represent the 2015 Leland Wine & Food Festival on the 2014 poster. Guests of the party/exhibit will have the opportunity to cast their ballot until Saturday, June 8 at 4:00 pm. The painting with the most votes will be announced from the band stand at 6:00 pm, at the Leland Wine & Food Festival.
Admission is $20 per person and you can get a weekend ticket that includes both events for just $30.
