Livermore Valley is home to one of California’s oldest wine regions. Our commercial wine production goes back to the 1840’s! Our wine-making heritage is proudly celebrated during the Livermore Wine Country Festival, taking place on April 30 and May 1. This year marks the 20th annual running of the event, which has grown steadily in popularity.
Naturally, wine takes center stage at the festival. 19 wineries are expected to participate, giving you an opportunity to sample varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Chardonnay and Merlot, just to name a few. There’s more than I can list!
To get the most out of the wine sampling opportunities, consider purchasing the Pre-Sale Wine Tasting Package for $25. This gives you a glass and 1 oz. tastes at all the wine booths. That’s right – all!
If you enjoy fine craftsmanship in beer, then you’ll want to sample from the 13 breweries that will be participating at the festival. There is also a Pre-Sale Tasting Package available for beer for $25. This includes a glass and 3-oz tastes from all beer booths.
Each Tasting Package is good for both days of the festival. It’s a good idea to go both days and pace yourself! To take advantage of the pre-sale visit the festival website.
If you don’t wish to imbibe, there are still plenty of reasons to visit the Livermore Wine County Festival. The event is held in beautiful downtown Livermore, putting you at the heart of great shopping and dining. Browse, mingle, visit old friends and meet new ones as you stroll through over 200 vendor booths. You’ll find an eclectic mix of food, art, jewelry, clothing, services, and more.
Have I mentioned the music? Take your pick from three different stages hosting all-day music. Get an earful of jazz, rock, country, folk, and reggae.
Best of all, you don’t have to leave the kids at home. Unless you want to! There’s an area just for kids, with carnival rides and games. There’s nothing like carnival rides to make kids happy, and there’s also ride coupon specials, to make parents happy.
The Livermore Wine Country Festival brings together many elements of our Livermore Valley lifestyle. Delicious food, hand-crafted wines, art, entertainment, and time with family and friends, are all canopied under a mild climate. It’s a reminder why Livermore Valley is a great place to live.
