The fall season will uncork once again when several of New Jersey’s finest wineries join together for the annual “Grand Harvest Wine Festival” on October 10 and 11 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. each day. Surrounded by the beauty of the autumn foliage this weekend of great New Jersey wine, gourmet food trucks, fabulous live music and artisan crafts is a fitting way to “celebrate the harvest”! Once you spend the day at this event you will know why so many mark their calendars every year for this wonderful seasonal festival.

This year the always much anticipated “Grand Harvest Wine Festival” finds a new home for one year at Sunrise Lake in Lewis Morris Park/Morristown. Be part of NJ’s “socially distanced” wine festival knowing these important protocols have been put in place to insure everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing time:

  • Masks must be worn at all times except at winery
  • Access to winery tasting stations via socially tasting stations or when seated in the festival field distanced queue lines
  • 6ft of social distance between all groups
  • Groups 8 or less at winery tasting stations
  • Festival layout reconfigured for social distancing
  • Festival following consistent sanitizing protocols

With “social distancing” in mind, this year’s Grand Harvest Wine Festival will be a much more intimate event. Because of that, tickets to this outdoor event are limited so get one before they are gone!
