The second annual Finger Lakes Music & Wine Festival August 17 -18th will again be hosted at Lakefront Park along the shore of beautiful Seneca Lake in Geneva, New York.
Wineries from across the state will be showcasing and selling their award winning wines. Headliner Big Eyed Phish, will be performing on the main stage Friday and Saturday night respectively. Overall 13 acts will entertain during the two-day festival on two stages with Classic Rock, Country, Jazz and Blues. Regrettably, Dickey Betts, founding member of the Allman Brothers had to cancel his appearance because of family issues.
The festival will feature a micro-brew tasting tent, a variety of vendors, and specialty cheeses from creameries in the Finger Lakes Region. Culinary delights and festival favorites can be found in the “Taste of the Finger Lakes” food court.
On Saturday, August 18, the Finger Lakes Music & Wine Festival will attempt to break the world record for the largest wine tasting event, which was set in 2006 by Spain’s Aranda de Duero with 5,095 participants. Festival organizers have set the stage for success by working closely with Guinness World Records NA on attempt details.
On August 18th, each wine tasting participant will be counted by a digital counter as they enter the wine tasting area between 3:00 – 8:00PM (each exiting participant will be subtracted). Participants are given a ticket, which they will have to submit at the time of their first wine tasting to one of the event’s wineries. Tickets will be counted to ensure participants have actually tasted wine. At 7:00PM a “Call to Action” will summon wine tasters to converge in the wine tasting area to be officially counted between 7:00-8:00PM to break the record with 5,096 participants. Mr. Philip Robertson, adjudicator of Guinness World Records NA, will preside over the attempt and will be available to the media for interviews as of 2:00PM at the festival site.
The Finger Lakes Music & Wine Festival is “Sampling For A Cause” $2 from every wine tasting ticket sold on Saturday will go directly to the Happiness House Foundation in Geneva NY. (www.happinesshouse.org)
