Vinoklet’s annual Art & Wine Festival turns 20 this year as live bands and more than 60 art vendors get ready to take over the vineyard grounds all weekend. Friday’s kick-off event features MC Steve Sommers, music from Red Hot Dancing Queens and Vernon McIntyre & Appalachian Grass and food and wine.
There will be more Bluegrass and Americana-inspired acts playing music all weekend, while shoppers can browse the art booths or purchase tickets to sample wine, cheese and more. Reservations are required for the restaurant, but there will also be a special Sunday fried chicken dinner ($12) available in the on-site gazebo.
7-11 p.m. Friday; noon-11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Free admission; tickets required for tastings and food. Vinoklet Winery & Restaurant, 11069 Colerain Ave., Colerain, vinokletwines.com.
