The 35th annual GrapeFest will be held in historic downtown Grapevine from September 16-19 and will feature wines from across the state, as well as California’s Napa Valley and South Australia’s Barossa Valley.
The four-day event—themed “Texas Wine. Come and Taste It!”—will include live music and entertainment, a carnival and select vendors. The event will also feature the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the Southwest, according to a press release.
GrapeFest celebrates Texas as the fifth-largest wine-producing state in the U.S. The festival, which usually attracts over 250,000 visitors, was canceled last year due to COVID-19 concerns.
Ticket information and a day-by-day schedule will be released later this summer.
