New for 2018, the indoor “Chocolate Lounge” and dessert area will expand throughout the Grandstand to allow for easier navigation.

So gather up your friends and family, sample from dozens of delicious New Jersey wines and finish it all off with the smooth taste of chocolate. Lots of chocolate!

Pick up a bottle of wine and picnic for the day or buy a $10 wristband for unlimited wine sampling. Chocolate sampling is $7. Or buy a combination ticket for $16. Wristband sales are cash only and ticket sales end at 4pm each day of the Festival.

Enjoy two days of live music and on Sunday enjoy FREE Family Fun Day featuring clowns, face painters, pony rides and a bounce house.

You definitely don’t want to miss the most decadent two days of the year!
