If you haven’t attended the Sierra Pelona Wine Festival in the last seven years, you wouldn’t know about the engaging crowds and enterprising vendors who participate. This year the 8th annual festival will celebrate local vintners at Reyes Winery in Agua Dulce on Saturday, April 4, 2020 from 1-6 p.m.
There are various tickets available and prices go up when purchased after March 31, 2020. You can gain entrance at 12 noon if you purchase a VIP Pre-Pay ticket. These ticketholders also have access to an exclusive area with artisanal food and wines. The VIP tickets cost $90 per person ($100 if purchased between March 1-March 31 and $110 if purchased between April 1-4). Because there are only 100 available, they typically sell out in advance.
A pre-paid general admission ticket to the Sierra Pelona Festival costs $55 per person ($65 from March 1-March 31 and $75 thereafter) or you can buy a group ticket package for $500.
There are nearly 1,000 attendees at the festival each year and event proceeds benefit Zonta Club of Santa Clarita. The festival is held both to raise money for charity and to bring national and regional attention to the wine and culinary offerings of Santa Clarita, adjacent communities and the Sierra Pelona Valley.
The wine festival features local wine makers from the Santa Clarita Valley to the Antelope Valley offering tastings of their best wines, plus cider, craft breweries and spirits. There will also be gourmet food and specialty items sampling, handmade crafts from local artisans, live music, a live auction and more.
Attendees will receive:
Specialty event glass
Specialty gift bag
Wine and beverage sampling
