NORFOLK, Va. – Setup is underway for the 14th annual Spring Town Point Virginia Wine Festival. It’s taking place Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8 off Waterside Drive.

It's the first time the spring fest has returned since the pandemic. The festival showcases more than 25 of the Commonwealth’s top wineries along the Elizabeth River. There will also be gourmet food, merchants, and live music.

“What’s sort of unique about our festival is that we promote and feature only made in Virginia wines and Virginia wineries,” said Jordan Lett, marketing director for Festvents.

The event is rain or shine, according to Lett. He explained that unused tickets for Saturday, May 7 will be accepted on Sunday, May 8 if a guest wants to switch the day that they plan to attend to have a better chance of preferable weather. If someone already purchased a ticket for Sunday and would like to switch to Saturday, they can do so for an additional fee, he said.

According to News 3 meteorologist Myles Henderson, as of Friday morning, the forecast Saturday morning will likely be the best bet for those wanting to stay dry, weather-wise.

The Wine Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, though wine sampling ends at 4:30 p.m.

Festevents encourages festival-goers to check their social media and website for any updates.
