It's a weekend filled with wine and chocolate...do we need to say more?!


New Jersey's finest wineries are back for another weekend of elegant wine tasting as are some of the area's best chocolatiers and dessert vendors.  But for 2017, we've added more!  More wineries, more dessert vendors, and an expanded festival area to create more room for lines and foot traffic.  The outdoor wine tasting area will be expanded to accommodate more wineries and more room for foot traffic. The indoor "Chocolate Lounge" and dessert area will expand throughout the first floor of the Grandstand to allow for easier navigation.


In addition, this year for the first time we will be offering advanced ticket sales.  To purchase your tickets in advance click here.  


So gather up your friends and family, sample from dozens of delicious New Jersey wines and finish it all off with the smooth taste of chocolate.  Lots of chocolate!


Pick up a bottle of wine and picnic for the day or buy a $10 wristband for unlimited wine sampling.  Chocolate sampling is $7.  Or buy a combination ticket for $15.


Gates open at 11:30am Saturday and Sunday with the first live race going off at 12:50pm.  The festival will continue until the end of live racing at approximately 5:30pm.


There will be live music 12-4pm Saturday courtesy of The Boss 107.1FM and Sunday by The Larry Stevens Band.  FREE Family Fun Day will be Sunday featuring clowns, face painters, pony rides and a bounce house.


You definitely don't want to miss the most decadent two days of the year!
