FLAGSTAFF WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL
A Celebration of Regional Wines & Local Foods
June 11 & 12, 2011
Noon - 6:00 p.m.
The Amphitheater at Fort Tuthill County Park, Flagstaff, Arizona
Produced by the Friends of Coconino County Parks in partnership with the Coconino County Parks & Recreation Department
The Second Annual Flagstaff Wine & Food Festival is a two-day celebration that offers attendees the opportunity to sample wines from noted Arizona wineries and signature food dishes from area restaurants. In addition to gourmet tastings, the festival features entertainment by regional bands, local food and art vendors, and an exciting auction of food and travel packages, wines, and local crafts. There is also a demonstration/mini-lecture stage for informative and entertaining culinary and wine presentations.
Last year's first-time and one-day event was a huge success. Over 1,500 people attended and were very enthusiastic about the event. They loved discovering regional wines and the knowledge they gained from vintners' staffs. Vendors were excited about the exposure (and revenue) they received. And, as the sponsor, Friends of Coconino County Parks generated much-needed funds to support the acquisition and improvement of our parks, trails, and open spaces.
