What is the Best Way to Experience the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival? Be a VIP!
There are a few different options for purchasing tickets to the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival… but when you are considering which type of ticket to purchase, there is only one option that gives you the best VIP experience and bang for your buck…our VIP tickets! Check out the top reasons to purchase a VIP ticket below!
VIP tickets will likely sell out, and a big part of the reason why is the VALUE. A VIP ticket includes 1-hour early entry to the festival both days and gives you exclusive access to our brand new private cabanas! The ticket is a $170 value for just $99!
1-Hour Early Access & Dedicated Entry
Although there are many great reasons why you should purchase a VIP ticket, one of the top reasons is the VIP exclusive 1-hour early access to the festival grounds on both days. With over 7,000 attendees expected through the weekend for 2023, we’ve extended VIP early access to 1 full hour, starting at 10am each day! If you would rather cruise into the festival a little later in the day, cut the line and use the VIP dedicated entrance to the festival. Beat the crowds and enjoy the entire festival in VIP style!
Cabanas were a HIT last year and are available again this year exclusively to VIP ticket holders courtesy of Adirondack Safari, our official VIP Cabana Sponsor. If your group has VIP tickets, you’ll have the option to purchase a private tent that you can use for the entire festival! You’ll be able to beat the heat, relax, and enjoy all the goodies you get at the festival. Plus, you’ll get 1 case of water bottles for your group and two bottles of sparkling wine from presenting sponsor Adirondack Winery!
Private cabanas start at $350 and VERY limited supply.
Front Row at Culinary and Cocktail Tent
VIPs get reserved first and second-row seating at the Culinary and Cocktail Tent, our top attraction at the festival!
Get an up-close look at the cooking and cocktail demonstrations performed by Executive Chef Eric Hudson, Mixaritas Mobile Bartending Service, and other special guests! The chefs and mixologists utilize products from our festival vendors in their recipes. In addition to the demonstrations, the chefs and mixologists will compete in ‘Iron Chef’ style competitions each day of the festival – influencer judges will put their taste buds to the ultimate test and choose the winners!
VIP Take-a-Break Tent
NEW this year is an exclusive VIP Take a Break Tent in the Cabana Village courtesy of Event in a Tent (VIP Take a Break Sponsor).
All that tasting can really take a toll on you and it’s important to take breaks in between and rest! And as you all know…the weather is unpredictable. Whether it’s a hot sunny day or raining, the Take a Break Tents are essential, which is why we wanted to add one exclusively to our VIPs!
VIP’S Get Free Festival Swag!
Okay, so you just walked through the welcome/check-in tent, and you’re getting your bearings on what to do first…
Hit the merch tent and get your festival survival gear! All VIPs receive a sweet VIP Goodie Bag courtesy of Lake George Outlets that includes a special edition 6-bottle reusable wine tote bag, a hands-free wine glass holder necklace, a bottle of water and free soda, and more!
Also under the merch tent, you’ll find more essential festival gear…from sunscreen and sunglasses to wine canteens and openers…we have you covered!
Hydrate for a Good Cause!
It’s important for every wine festival is staying hydrated. In every VIP Goodie Bag, a bottle of Saratoga Water will be provided courtesy of our Official Water Sponsor, Saratoga Water! PLUS, our Festival Beneficiary, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks will be selling water through the weekend at the Welcome Tent and via mobile wagons, so hydrate for a good cause!
