Taste the Best of Sonoma County
The Harvest Fair marks it’s 42nd year of showcasing our county’s grand harvest which continues to result in world-class wines, award winning beer and a plethora of culinary wealth. Last year, with over 26,000 votes, the Harvest Fair was voted the Best Annual Festival of Sonoma County bestowed by The Press Democrat readers. Each October, thirsty travelers from over thirty different states, are beckoned to Santa Rosa to participate in a complete farm to table experience, inspired by the county’s hard working farmer’s, ranchers, vintners and producers.
Grand Harvest Tasting Pavilion
The epicenter of the Harvest Fair is still the Grand Tasting Pavilion, which features over one-hundred-fifty Sonoma County wineries bringing forth their best varietals for sampling. Guests are invited to savor innovative cuisine from this year’s Professional Food Competition, awards winning wines, locally crafted brews, ciders and more. More...
Wine Country Marketplace
The Wine Country Marketplace offers visitors a unique “Go Local” shopping experience where you can sit it on a chef demonstration or polish your palette during a wine tasting seminar (free with gate admission). Not only will guests be able to take home gold medal wines from the professional competition but collectors may find special vintages that may not be readily available at the local grocer. The marketplace also boasts an array of artisan vendors with unique wares like hand-crafted jewelry, clothing, luxury soaps and locally milled olive oil. More...
