Colorado Mountain Winefest is without a doubt one of the best and most fun events you will attend, and this year is going to be amazing as we've all had two years to prepare for the event. The Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) has worked with local health officials to make sure that the Colorado Mountain Winefest can return this year taking place in September.

The two-day festival in the park will be at Riverbend Park in Palisade on Saturday, September 18th, and Sunday, September 19th with a limited number of tickets being available for each day to allow for social distancing. Both days will offer the same incredible experience with unlimited sips of some of the best wines created by dozens of Colorado wineries. As always you can also expect to find artisan vendors, live music, educational seminars, and chef demos by local experts.
