Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling

Raise a glass at our brand-new celebration of all things wine!

The Winter Winefest & Market is a wine lovers dream – an event that features sampling and the chance to buy wines direct from some of Pennsylvania’s best wineries! But it’s not just wine – the event will also feature vendors and other retailers selling wine-adjacent goods… think cheese, chocolate, and more!

Guests can also add on interactive seminars designed to teach you how to assemble the perfect charcuterie board or the finer points of wine tasting. Get your tickets early and save some $ (which you can use at the market on your new favorite wines)!
