TEMPLETON — The fifth annual Templeton Wine Festival, hosted by the Templeton Chamber of Commerce, is set to return Saturday, May 6. Held at Templeton Park, located at 550 Crocker St., from 1-5 p.m., the festival is one of the area’s biggest celebrations and has become a weekend vacation destination for people from both near and far.
Starting the first weekend of May, local wine enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a pre-summer soaked weekend in one of the area’s most scenic towns.
Templeton is a small, peaceful town nestled amongst the grape vines. Surrounded by vineyards in almost every direction, it comes as no surprise that wine runs through the veins of locals here, and for one weekend this year, it will run right through the heart of town, too.
At this year’s wine festival guests will have the opportunity to thoroughly explore the Central Coast’s cultural horizons. The event has been expanded to include not only a collection of Central Coast wineries, but also a selection of local food samples and culinary delights, boutique shopping booths and vendors, and also a live musical performance by artist Joy Bonner.
Admission to this event will cost $35 for pre-sale tickets and $45 when purchased at the door.
Guests are encouraged to return to Templeton Park the following day, from 1-5 p.m. to continue their weekend fun — this time at the Templeton Beer Festival.
Although craft beers started off as a small industry, they are quickly making a name for themselves, especially here along the Central Coast.
Produced by the Rotary Club of Templeton and Hole Hop Productions, this event will feature beer selections from several local breweries and taprooms.
