Pop the Cork! Wildwood Hosting a Wine Festival This Weekend
Fancy a glass of wine (or two, lol)? Point your car towards Wildwood this weekend and check out its wine festival.
The 'Pour Into Summer Wine Festival' takes place over two days, Saturday May 22nd and Sunday, May 23rd, outdoors at beautiful Byrne Plaza, according to wildwood365 on Instagram. It's being billed as 'NJ's socially distanced wine festival'.
Now, Memorial Day Weekend isn't until the following week, and the summer season doesn't technically arrive until June 20th, but we admire Wildwood's enthusiasm! And, what wine fan doesn't love the chance to spend the day sampling some new, local varietals, especially along the Jersey shore coast. Jersey wineries usually have some delicious seasonal wines, too.
Several New Jersey wineries will reportedly be participating, and there will also be food trucks, crafters, and live music. Sounds like a perfect day to us!
The 'Pour Into Summer Wine Festival' takes place from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sat. May 22nd and Sun. May 23rd. Tickets are $25 in advance and include wine glass and sampling. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE. Must be 21 to purchase a ticket and to participate in the wine sampling.
Byrne Plaza is located at 3400 Pacific Avenue in Wildwood.
So far, weather looks favorable with hi temps in the upper 70's Saturday and mid 80's on Sunday! Enjoy and remember to drink responsibly. CALL A FRIEND OR RIDE SHARE IF YOU NEED A SAFE RIDE HOME!
