So many activities throughout the weekend – besides great food, wine & craft beer, there will be live entertainment, food demonstrations in the Demonstration Tent, competitions galore from bocce & grape stomps daily.  You don’t want to miss the Sauce Competition on Saturday or the Waiters Race on Sunday.
