It’s with great disappointment that we announce that the 35th annual Leland Wine and Food Festival scheduled for Saturday, June 13th has been canceled due to circumstances surrounding Covid-19 Coronavirus. This is the first time since the festival began in 1986 that we haven’t joined together in celebration of fabulous Leelanau wines and delicious foods on the second Saturday in June, and we’re already planning on our best Wine Fest yet in 2021!
We would like to extend our gratitude to our incredible volunteer planning committee, our sponsors, local wineries, food vendors, musicians and artists who have been so understanding and supportive throughout this process, and to all of our Wine Fest attendees, many of which attend faithfully year after year!
For those of you who have already purchased your tickets, please note you can expect to see a refund in 7-14 business days.
Social distancing and shelter in place are difficult for all of us. Luckily, many area wineries who had planned to participate in the Leland Wine and Food Festival are offering special deals on shipping, offering curbside pick, hosting virtual tastings and more to ensure great wine can be had by all during these difficult times.
Join us for a wonderful afternoon of Wine on the Water on Saturday, July 20, 2019, from 1-7pm at Suttons Bay Marina Park.
The Leelanau Peninsula Wine on the Water Festival features tastes from local Leelanau wineries, cideries and breweries as well as delicious food from local restaurants. Enjoy drinks, food and all-day musical entertainment. Experience unforgettable wine, food and music beside the cool breeze from Grand Traverse Bay!
Tickets are $20 in advance or $30 at the gate. Each ticket includes a commemorative wine glass. Tasting tickets and food are available for purchase during the event.
This annual weekend kicks off the fall harvest season along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail featuring crisp and bright cool-climate wines and culinary delights that reflect the season’s bounty. This exciting fall event includes a self-guided tour along the trail, where you’re free to visit any of the 27 participating wineries in any order you choose on both Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir wine glass, along with a featured wine and small bite food pairing at all 27 participating wineries. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 tastes. Purchase your tickets by selecting a starting winery where you will check-in to the event and pick up your supplies before charting your own course to participating wineries in any order you choose. Tickets are good for both Saturday and Sunday. Designated Driver tickets are available for $20 and include the small bites.
Don’t want to drive?

You can also take your food and wine tour via bus or limo by contacting one of our transportation partners. We encourage you to contact them PRIOR to purchasing your tickets and a starting point.
