This coming weekend is the annual Sunriver Sunfest Wine Festival (Saturday and Sunday the 24th and 25th), and this year there are some notable changes from past years.
First and foremost, Sunfest is taking place at Sunriver Resort rather than in the Village promenade area—specifically on the Meadows Driving Range behind the Sunriver Resort Lodge. You’ll be able to park at the Resort (or at the Village, where there will be a shuttle service).
Another big change is the wine tasting: as always, entrance to the Festival is free, and in past years if you wanted to taste wine, you would pay the individual tasting fee at the winery’s table and would get the tasters in plastic cups. This year, you will be required to purchase a $10 wine glass and then also will have to pay for the tasters (or full glasses, or whatever).
As always, there will also be food, beer, and live music on hand. Kids and dogs are welcome.
Full schedule after the jump.
