Yorktown Wine Festival

Saturday, October 7, 2023

Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or an aspiring novice—you don’t want to miss this grand tasting of wines from Virginia and beyond!

Yorktown shares more than just history with our sister cities Zweibrücken and Port-Vendres. In a nod to both countries, you can sample Rieslings and Gewürztraminers from Germany and indulge bubbly from France—the only place where true champagne is created! Enjoy live music, great food from local restaurants, and the work of talented artisans. 

The Fifes and Drums of York Town will perform.

Admission includes Virginia Craft Beer Garden and Virginia's Finest Distilleries. 


  • $35 on or before Aug. 30
  • $40 after Sept. 1 & at the event

Purchase tickets here.

This is a closed-ticketed only event. Everyone must purchase a ticket to enter the event area. There will be a limited number of non-drinking tickets available this year. No outside food, drink, tables, tents, or umbrellas. Unopened bottled water and a small folding lawn chair will be permitted. Service pets only. Proceeds benefit York Foundation for Public Education, Sister Cities Yorktown, and other local nonprofits.
