Celebrate Wine, Food, and Craft Beverage at Bethel Woods' Upcoming Festivals | Sponsored | Craft Beverage Industry | Hudson Valley | Hudson Valley; Chronogram

Picture a serene day in upstate New York with live music, tastings from the finest wineries and breweries, and food trucks and markets galore while a light breeze blows. With two unique annual fall festivals to choose from at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, you’ll be ushered into October with myriad wineries and breweries from around the Hudson Valley and Finger Lake regions.


Join the folks at Bethel Woods for the return of the annual Wine Festival on Saturday, October 5 and the Craft: Beer, Spirits & Food Festival on Saturday, October 12. For the annual events, the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel Woods will offer complimentary tastings with every ticket purchase.

During the Wine Festival, choose from the best wineries from all over the state including Adirondack Winery, Fjord Vineyards, Union Grove Distillery, Victorianbourg Wine Estate, and more, while enjoying live music from Kat Wright and The Big Takeover.  Enhance your experience with a VIP ticket (which gives you early entry as well as an exclusive dining session in the Event Gallery) or a Paint & Sip experience led by artist Susan Pantaleone for the more adventurous wine drinkers.


With offerings including beer, spirits, cider and mead, Bethel Woods' Craft: Beer, Spirits & Food Festival will give you the chance to sample craft beverage varieties of the region and enjoy live music from Andy Frasco & The U.N. and Big Something. Taste test all the food trucks and markets have to offer, and enjoy an enhanced experience with VIP tickets that include access to all breweries an hour earlier, a private lounge experience, an exclusive dining and tasting session and more.

Breweries, cideries and distilleries including 1857 Spirits Barbers Farm Distillery, Abandoned Hard Cider, Sierra, Six Point, Woodstock Brewing Company and more will give you a little sample of the fall festivities to come and leave you feeling warm and ready to transition into autumn.


During your stay, you can also explore the Museum at Bethel Woods, where you can learn about the historic music event and the culture of the 1960s, or explore the Bazaar walking trail, both of which will be open during the festivals.

Planning to attend both events? New this year, Bethel Woods is excited to offer a Festival Combo Ticket—guaranteeing general admission to both Wine Festival and Craft: Beer, Spirits & Food Festival. Quantity is limited. More information available when you visit BethelWoodsCenter.org.

    Why Brandon Walker's Poughkeepsie eatery has largely flown under the radar since it opened in 2016 is a mystery to us.
