The 8th annual Niagara USA Wine Festival was a great way to enjoy the end of July and get ready for August! This was a two day event with 17 different wineries, and a chance to try three different wines from each. The event was a peaceful and relaxing way to enjoy different wineries and socialize with friends.
The festival took place in Academy Park on Center Street in Lewiston. There was free parking and only a $25 fee for early admission, and $30 for day to day ticket admission. After getting checked in, every attendee received a wine glass, coupons for some of the wineries and a book with information about each winery. They had other venders there to sell food and other products, including local farmers’ markets selling fresh fruits and vegetables, pies, jams and different sauces. Some venders even had actual food trucks, including Seas the Day Sea food truck and 716 food truck.
The Niagara Wine Trail did a wonderful job of keeping things running smoothly – even on the second day despite the torrential downpour! They had a wine-check booth that held wine purchased by customers, so that they wouldn’t have to carry them around all day while enjoying the festival. There were tables and tents to sit and relax, and musicians playing relaxing music to go with the mood set for the event. The event was a wonderful experience all around! We definitely recommend it to anyone interested in trying a variety of Niagara Wines or just wanting to enjoy a relaxing day out and about in Lewiston. We will see you all there next summer!
