#SUNDAYFUNDAY – So Many Great Reasons to Attend the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival on Sunday!

Did you know that most people attend the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival on Saturday? We encourage you to plan ahead and attend on Sunday. Not only do we offer a special Sunday coupon code, but we’ve also got 6 great reasons why attending on Sunday is a great idea!

Current Ticket Pricing:

  •  General Admission Tasting Ticket: $38.00
    •  VIP 1 Day Tasting Ticket: $55.00
    •  VIP 2 Day Tasting Ticket: $75.00
    •  Designated Driver / Underage Ticket: Only $15 (Now or at the Gate!)


For the past 4 festivals, Sunday has been the day of significantly less attendees and we expect that to continue in 2019.

Less attendees means you and your friends have FREE Reign to experience the festival grounds and all it has to offer.

Enjoy Shorter lines to try the wonderful hand-crafted products our 120 vendors are sampling and displaying.

Sit back and relax under one of our “Take a Break Tents” or chill at a picnic table or grouping of Adirondack Chairs!


With shorter lines on Sunday, that means you’ll spend less time waiting to enjoy the fantastic wines, beer spirits and ciders our vendors have to offer; and more time drinking them!

With approximately 30 wineries, 5 breweries, 10 distilleries and 10 cideries and 1 meadery on tap (ie 55+ craft beverage makers); each of them sampling 4-15 products each, you will have every opportunity to discover your new favorite craft beverages!


Less crowds on Sunday means more time to interact with our vendors throughout the festival.

Nowhere else in the Adirondacks will you have the opportunity to talk with wine makers, brewers, cheese makers and crafters like you do at the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival!

Learn about wines you’ve never heard of, twists on craft ciders that you’ve never had before and more!


The Chef William Creations Culinary Tent, Sponsored by Marcella’s Appliance & The Big Green Egg will have a full schedule of culinary demonstrations all weekend long; however, on Sunday your mouth will be sure to water as we add an Iron-Chef Style Competition to the lineup on Sunday only! Take part with a taste and judge for yourself!

Stay tuned for other competition activities on Sunday’s schedule as well!
