WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (January 19, 2017) - If you’re beginning to think about plans for the upcoming summer, Watkins Glen International is the perfect place to start in 2017.

The historic road course in central New York will welcome more than 90 in-state wineries, in addition to musicians, regional chefs, food trucks, craft vendors, and visitors from all over the country during the weekend of July 14-16 for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese – which was named USA Today’s 10Best “Best Wine Festival” in 2016.

Camping has become a staple of the signature event, with many guests electing to make a weekend of their visit – allowing for further enjoyment of all that the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese has to offer, in the safest manner possible.

“For many of our visitors during the Finger Lakes Wine Festival, the event has transformed from a day trip to an all-out, full weekend at The Glen,” WGI President Michael Printup said. “Why not? Everything you need is right here. At the end of the day, you can go back to your campsite and continue to enjoy the festivities without having to worry about getting in a car and leaving the property. It’s a great option, and one that people are increasingly taking advantage of.”
