2018 SJ Wine & Food Festival
September 22, 2018 - September 23, 2018
South Jersey Wine & Food Festival Returns to Lake Lenape Park East for its 8th year, September 22-23.
Presented by the Mays Landing Merchants Association, the 8th Annual South Jersey Wine and Food Festival is returning to serene Lake Lenape Park East in Mays Landing, on Saturday, September 22nd and Sunday, September 23rd from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Come out to meet some of South Jersey’s best winemakers and culinary personalities and sample their delicious creations!
With the picturesque lake and the historic lighthouse as the backdrop, this Fall festival allows attendees to dine on a vast array of local culinary and sample Garden State wines, grown right in our own backyard! In addition to the wine and food, attendees will be able to immerse themselves in live music, culinary demonstrations, as well as shop local craft and novelty vendors. The laid-back atmosphere of the South Jersey Wine and Food Festival sets the mood for a fantastic, relaxing day filled with food, wine, and fun for the entire family.
If you find wines that you really like, you can purchase them onsite! Better yet, if you can’t wait until you get home to drink it, you can uncork that bottle in our amazing wine garden nestled lakeside that provides scenic views to compliment your favorite bottle!
The site layout will create pop-up entertainment areas with diverse musical selections, creating a site plan more conducive to conversation and relaxation in the winery and vendor areas.
