Food Court at The Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest

The Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest will celebrate its 18th anniversary on the weekend of September 7 and 8, at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck. This year the festival will welcome a new chef to its Cooking Demonstration Stage—Roshni Gurnani, a Food Network Chopped champion.
     Returning chefs will include Dana Johnson, of Relish Delights; Arlyn Osborne, recipe developer for the Food Network; and Marcus Giuliano, owner of Aroma Thyme Bistro.
    The festival will include wine and spirits sampling, cooking demonstrations and more than 200 vendors of gourmet specialty foods, jewelry, fine crafts, home goods and related items. This year’s event will feature an expanded Food Truck Corral offering cuisine from around the world. The festival is also a New York-registered farm market.
    Participating wineries will offer their wine by the bottle for guests to take home, and there will be a wine check service so guests won’t have to carry all their purchases. Tasting ticket admission includes all wine, spirits and craft beer sampling and a souvenir tasting glass. Regular admission includes free water and soda and a souvenir glass upon exiting the event.

Location: Dutchess County Fairgrounds, 6636 US-9, Rhinebeck, NY. Advance discounted tickets available at HudsonValleyWineFest.com. For more info, call Jennifer Cristaldi at 845.658.7181 or email [email protected]
