Additional Questions about the Jazz & Wine Festival:
1.) What is the fee to attend the event and what is included in the cost of the weekend

For $50 in advance/$60 at the door our guests enjoy THREE days of world class entertainment
Fort Hunter Park as well as free wine tasting from local PA Wineries. Guests receive a festival wine glass at the door. Each winery allows five samples as part of their tasting. We make our best effort to prepare for the number of guests that we have but if we do run out of glasses or you forget to bring your glass back on Sunday, we do have plastic glasses for your use. Children age 12 and under can come to the event for free as we encourage children of all ages to experience the wonderful entertainment that we have.

2.) Where can I purchase tickets? Is there a fee for online ticket sales?
Tickets can be purchased online by
