Their is no charge to attend the Festival but you will need to purchase tickets to sample food and wine. The cost is $20.00 for a book of 25 tickets and $10.00 for per person for entrance to the wine garden. You will be able to purchase tickets at the event. Active duty military families will receive one free coupon book while supply lasts!
If you bring the family make sure you stop by the Childrens’s Corner. The kids will love jumping in the bounce house and getting their face painted!!
You will also be able to enjoy some great music. A few of the bands that will be on hand include Hand Painted Swinger, Frankojazz and DelRay School of Rock.
This is a great chance to taste food from some of Alexandria’s best restaurants, including Chart House, Delia’s Mediterranean Grill and Alexandria Cupcake. Also, in the Winegarden you will be able to taste some of Virginia’s best wines. Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery, Lake Anna Winery and Mattaponi Winery are just a few of the great local wineries that will be present.
The Carlyle district is located across from the King Street Metro Station which means if you do not want to drive you will be able to take the metro.
For more information about this great event go to Alexandria Food and Wine Festival.
Along with donating a coupon book to Active Duty Military Families the Festival will give a portion of its proceeds to the Carpenter’s Shelter of Alexandria.
