The Crocker Park Wine Festival turns five this year and organizers are planning to celebrate in style.

On September 18 - 19, the greens of Crocker Park's South Main Street will transform into a pop-up fest sporting 150+ local, national, and international wines, as well as craft beers and spirits. Live entertainment including tunes by local bands Funkology and Monica Robins & the Whiskey Kings will be provided, and Wine & Canvas painting classes will be going on all weekend.



Need another reason to visit? The event benefits health, wellness and military support charities in Northeast Ohio so, really, guests can drink up for a good cause. “We look forward to another successful event and raising funds for health related causes such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease and supporting active and retired military personnel and their families as they provide the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our freedom," event organizers said in a press release. 

"Our continued partnerships with Giant Eagle, Crocker Park, Woodford Reserve, Old Forester, Goose Island, Keuka Lake Wine Trail, Copper Cane, The WineBuzz Magazine and Wine & Canvas, as well as our many suppliers, will enable us to cast a wider net in the community and generate funds for our beneficiaries who are working tirelessly to make a difference in so many ways,” Debra Sherman, president of Connecting For A Cause, said. "This year’s beneficiaries include walk teams from the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, NEOPAT (Northeast Ohio Foundation for Patriotism), and pediatric cancer programs at area hospitals."

Tickets are $22 in advance and $27 at the door. They can be purchased right here.
