Upcoming Wine Festivals to Benefit Sylvia’s Children

Jersey Wine Festival NJ

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

The fourth annual Waretown Spring Festival will return on Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29 in the Waretown Recreation and Lake Area, located at 182 Wells Mills Road. The yearly two-day event will feature tastings from a number of award-winning Garden State wineries. The cost to attend is $20 in advance or $30 at the gate for those over age 21.

The Lakewood BlueClaws will again host the eighth annual Jersey Shore Wine Festival at Lakewood’s FirstEnergy Park on Saturday, June 9 through Sunday, June 11. The 2018 Shore Wine Festival will feature samplings from a variety of wineries throughout the state. The cost to attend is $20 in advance or $30 at the gate for those over age 21.

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 2001 to improve the lives of more than 1,000 children in Uganda, Africa.
