Attending Wine Festival? Here's what you need to know: For everyone’s safety, Bethel Woods conducts bag searches and walk-through metal detection as part of our security screening process. Upon your arrival at the security screening area, be prepared to have your bag searched and to remove keys, cell phones, wallets and anything else that may delay your entry and place them in a provided container before walking through the metal detector. It is not necessary to remove shoes, belts, jewelry, wristwatches or coins. We strongly urge all guests to budget additional time for entry into the venue when planning their visits.
All patrons are reminded to review our bag policy and prohibited items list before your arrival. For this event, we are not following our standard concert clear bag policy. All types of bags will be permitted, however clear bags are encouraged to expedite the security screening process and will be available for purchase. Additionally, two empty shopping bags per guest will be permitted.
Join us on Saturday, October 5, 2019 for the 8th Annual Wine Festival at Bethel Woods, located throughout the Bethel Woods main campus. Savor the finest wines from the Hudson Valley and Finger Lake regions while listening to live music, participating in fun games, and enjoying a food court to satisfy all cravings.
Plus, make a day of it with multiple pre-festival events for guests to enjoy, including a limited-seating Paint & Sip experience overlooking the Pavilion Stage led by artist and printmaker Susan Pantaleone from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m* and a Vintage Run Half Marathon and 5K, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. respectively.
