Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest


The experience

Take the Hudson Line to Poughkeepsie Station to connect with a free shuttle bus to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds for the Wine and Food Fest!  

Use Metro-North’s promotional code MNR2013 when you purchase your event tickets and save $10 off the gate price of admission (so $30 for a tasting ticket or $12 for a regular admission).

In its twelfth year, the Wine and Food Fest will feature wine tastings of hundreds of wines from all over the world with vineyard owners, Certified Wine Specialists, and sommeliers, along with food samplings from regional restaurants and caterers, a chance to shop over one hundred home goods, art, craft, and gourmet specialty food vendors, and, for the first time ever, New York and regional craft beer.

In addition, the festival will feature live music and other entertainment, along with educational cooking and wine tasting seminars by Chef Vincent Tropepe, Chef Peter Kelly, and Certified Wine Specialist Debbie Gioquindo. Get the unique experience of talking directly to those who are producing the wine and beer, with over 1000 wines and craft beers represented.  The Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest will feature about a dozen food trucks in addition to the dozens of restaurants and specialty food vendors who will be represented.
