The 2018 Wine Festival will be held Saturday, June 16 from 2 to 8 p.m. The festival is sponsored by the Downtown Excelsior Partnership in cooperation with the The Elms Hotel & Spa and others.
Whether you are a seasoned wine connoisseur or are still figuring out the difference between chardonnay and champagne, the Excelsior Springs Wine Festival is for you! This traditional event places the wines of Missouri on display in the beautiful outdoor setting of Lover’s Lane in East Valley Park.
Festival attendees have an opportunity to sample all varieties of local wines, learn wine-making methods and speak directly with the winery owners who have made Missouri famous in the American wine market.
An assortment of local bands provide the background music and keep the festival lively, while delicious food demonstrations — that always include a sample of the dish prepared using wines — delights the taste buds. The festival also features fine art and craft vendors who add to the air of refinement and class.
Tickets to the Wine Festival include access to the grounds, free wine samples and the option to buy additional wine by the glass, bottle or case.
