HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The seventh annual Crush Wine & Food Festival is back in town after being canceled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival will include live music, food trucks, and over 100 wine labels. The event lasts from September 22 through September 26 and is being held at Big Spring Park East.
Tickets went on sale on June 8. The festival offers general admission and VIP tickets, with add-ons for exclusive expert tours and tastings. The Sip Lounge is participating in the event and they are hosting a "Whisky & Wild Game Garden".
"Well, we're always trying to expose and grow the town. let it know that other things are out there and show it some of the finer more fun things in life," said General Manager of Sip, Patrick Briscoe.
In previous years the event has sold out. This year, organizers are expecting the same outcome. The first 400 general admission tickets for Saturday are $45. VIP tickets begin at $95.
"Sometimes being told to take a year off--whether it's your decision or not-- really makes you appreciate so much more about the people I get to work with, the things we get to promote and seeing the community get excited," Ashley Ryals, the owner of Homegrown LLC said.
