For two days every August, the oak-shaded land around Lake Metroparks Farmpark becomes home to a celebration of regional arts and gourmand culture as visitors gather to attend the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival. Representatives from more than 15 Ohio wineries participate in the festivities, pouring samples of locally produced table wines and fruit wines to please virtually any palate.
The celebration isn't limited to the confines of a wine glass, though. Three separate stages host performances by live bands, giving attendees an opportunity to tap their toes while enjoying a snack of freshly roasted corn, barbecue ribs, or funnel cake from one of the restaurants with booths on the grounds. Additionally, the festival features local artisans selling everything from handmade jewelry to clothing, and chefs leading cooking classes so visitors can learn the best way to filet a wine grape.
