MV Food & Wine Festival (S)

The Mount Vernon Food & Wine Festival event flavored with live music is conducted on the Friday and Saturday of the last full weekend of October on and around the plaza in downtown Mount Vernon.  These events were predated by the Wine in the Pines, a wine tasting event established in 2010. Since that time, the event has evolved into a culinary experience for those who want more than "a tasting".

Friday evening is a multi-course culinary experience called "Harvest on Main" with advance tickets required and is limited to the first 125 registered participants (2017 DINNER IS SOLD OUT) .  It is a five course meal with wines selected to complement the fare by acclaimed chef and Maître d Enam Chowdhury.

Saturday’s "Harvest Market" is open from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for visitors to experience the inspired wine and food parings from a select group of high quality wineries. Other vendors with wine or culinary related ties will be featured, along with a variety of culinary demonstrations by chefs from these "top shelf" wineries which have culinary offerings at their home bases throughout the region. A $10 admission gets you a wine bag and tasting glass. Tastings are generally $1 each or can be purchased by the glass. Stock up on your favorite wines for less by the bottle.

    Online registration is required for the Friday evening Harvest on Main culinary experience, as well as wine and craft vendors for Saturday’s Harvest Market at (website being developed). Meanwhile, call the sponsoring Mount Vernon Main Street office at 903-537-4070 with questions.
