Sonoma County Harvest Fair

From Friday, October 6, 2017 to Sunday, October 8, 2017 October 6, 2017 October 8, 2017 Sandman Santa Rosa

In 2017, the Harvest Fair will mark it’s 43rd 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. In 2015, 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 across the entire US, are beckoned to Santa Rosa to participate in a complete farm to table experience, inspired by the county’s hard working farmers, 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 Sonoma County wineries bringing forth their best varietals for sampling.  Taste innovative cuisine from this year’s Professional Food Competition, locally crafted brews and ciders.

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.

The Fair takes place at Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa.
