New Jersey Wine Festivals to Benefit Sylvia’s Children

Mark your calendars and save the dates: two of New Jersey’s most popular wine festivals are once again returning this year.

The third annual Waretown Spring Wine Festival will return on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23 in the Waretown Recreation and Lake Area, located at 182 Wells Mill Road. The yearly two-day event will feature tastings from a number of award-winning Garden State wineries. The cost to attend is $15 in advance or $20 at the gate for those over age 21.

The Lakewood BlueClaws will again host the seventh annual Jersey Shore Wine Festival at Lakewood’s FirstEnergy Park on Saturday, June 10 through Sunday, June 11. The 2017 Jersey Shore Wine Festival will feature samplings from a variety of wineries from throughout the state. The cost to attend is $20 in advance or $30 at the gate for those over age 21. A two-day combo ticket will also be available.

Both festivals will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, and will include live entertainment, retail vendors, crafters, and food trucks. Net proceeds from both wine festivals will be donated to Sylvia’s Children, a Holmdel-based 501(c)3 organization working since 2003 to improve the lives of more than 1,000 children in Uganda, Africa.
