What To Expect at the 2023 Crocker Park Wine Festival?
We’re very excited to host the 12th Annual Crocker Park Wine Festival presented by HealthSource Chiropractic of Avon on Friday, Sept 15 from 4-10pm and Saturday, Sept 16 from 2-10pm! Here’s a quick guide to help ensure you have the very best experience possible!
You should all know how to get here by now, right? If not, no judgement, we got you covered. Just head to crockerpark.com/faq for detailed directions no matter where you’re traveling from in Northeast Ohio and beyond.
You can also find more info on where to park on our FAQ page … although if you plan on drinking, please consider using a ride share or arranging a designated driver. With that in mind, Designated Driver tickets are available at the door for just $10 and they include 2 tickets for soft drinks or bottled water available at the main bar.
Entrance to the Wine Festival is at the south end of Center Circle at the intersection of Crocker Park Blvd and Main St in between Altar’d State and Anthropologie. Simply show the barcode from the ticket on your mobile phone to receive a wristband and enter. Contact-less tickets can be purchased on the day of the event. Scan one of the QR codes on-site to purchase and show the barcode on your phone to enter.
Each ticket includes a commemorative wine glass and 10 tasting tickets. Additional taste tickets are available in packs of 10 for $10 and available on site only. Full pour beer and wine options range from 4 to 6 taste tickets.
Once inside, feel free to let your hair down and enjoy yourself! Our friendly volunteers will be pouring over 150 wines, beers, and spirits from right here in Greater Cleveland and all over the world. Simply present your tasting ticket, your glass, and enjoy!
Not the tasting type? No worries! A full pour bar is located near Center St right in the middle of all the action. Stop by to grab a beer, wine, or cocktail. Shout out to our awesome bar sponsor Westlake Plastic Surgery and drink sponsors Cutwater and Market District!
Food & Vendors
In addition to all the great drinks, we have a delish assortment of food available for purchase on-site, including Condado Tacos, Hot Chicken Takeover, Pasta Co-op, and Market District. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, feel free to head to any one of the great restaurants across Crocker Park to grab a bite and return to the festival after. Just be sure to keep your wristband on.
We also have some amazing local pop-up shops to browse and buy while enjoying the festival. And be sure to stop by each of our sponsor booths to learn more about them, grab some swag, and say thanks for helping make it all happen.
Pro tip: Be sure to stop by the Photo Booth Sponsor Integrity Home Group for a fun photo-op!
