"splatter . . . not your ordinary food, art and wine festival " is just around the corner! The event takes place on Saturday, September 21 in the beautiful setting of Emerald Glen Park.

Admission to the event is free.

At the center of this unique event is the Food and Wine Tasting Pavilion. This year's Pavilion has doubled in size to 15,000 square feet and will feature dozens of the finest wineries, micro-breweries and restaurants in the Tri-Valley. Tasting Pavilion hours are 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Passports must be purchased to enter the Pavilion and participate in the tasting experience.

A limited number of passports can now be purchased at the special pre-event rate of $25.00. Each Passport is good for one limited-edition event wine glass and 20 samples or tastes of your choice of food or beverage. If available passports may also be purchased on the day of the event for $30.00.

Advance purchase of your passport is highly recommended as the Pavilion is likely to sell-out once again this year.
