DC Wine Fest returns in person, scheduled for Oct. 16 at Dock 5 in Union Market.

Organizers, who have held a spring event and an fall event since the first DC Wine Fest in 2014, canceled both events in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and canceled its April spring wine party this year for the same reason.

The all-day event usually draws as many as 2,000 people, but attendance this year will be limited to 1,500.

DC Wine Fest will feature wines from 17 wineries, including locals, and each ticket includes unlimited wine tasting. Two local craft breweries will also be part of Wine Fest this year – Lost Barrel Brewing and The Bruery.

In addition to unlimited tasting, participants will also be able to learn about each winery and the winemaking process from the participating producers and wineries.

There will also be live music from bands Rock Creek Kings, Shelby Blondell and MARE.

Food can be purchased at Buddin Bakery, Doughboy Creamery, Corky’s Crab Cakes and Carta Coffee Merchants.

There are three sessions, from noon to 3pm, 3.30pm to 6.30pm and 7pm to 10pm General admission to the sessions is $ 35, with tickets for early admission at $ 60.

With unlimited tasting, attendees could be a little pointed, but Wine Fest organizer Craft Hospitality says the service ends for anyone showing visible signs of poisoning.
