Ticket-holders get admission to both days of the event, plus wine, beer, and food at no additional cost. On Friday, October 16, oenophiles gather at Aaron Bessant Park to sip vintages from myriad wineries. On Saturday, October 17, beer lovers sample suds from a variety of breweries. Both days feature gourmet food. Friday’s festivities run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday’s run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Spending a day drinking at a festival sounds great until you find out that it's a wine festival and you hate wine or a beer festival and you hate beer. Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce actually caters to both oenophiles and beer enthusiasts by hosting a two-day festival with one day devoted to wine and one devoted to beer.
The UNwineD: Vines to Steins event unfolds on Friday, October 16, and Saturday, October 17, at Aaron Bessant Park. On Friday, visitors swirl and sip more than 70 wines, talk to winemakers, and groove to music from True Soul. On Saturday, numerous breweries take over the park. They fill glasses with more than 250 craft beers and compete to be named the winner of the inaugural Craft Beer Cup, all while live music from Heritage Band floods the air.
Those who enjoy wine and beer equally can sample both with a two-day ticket to the fest. Each day also treats attendees to local coastal cuisine.
