Grand Meadow Meadowfest: June 24-26

Published 6:03 pm Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Grand Meadow is 160 years old and still going strong, and that will be reflected in this year’s Meadowfest, slated for June 24-26.

However things will get a mini kick-off the Thursday before, on June 23 with a Kids/Family Fun Night and Treasure Hunt.

The next day things get started in earnest.

A short drive east on Highway 14 will also bring visitors to Four Daughters Vineyard and Winery and their assortment of wines, hard ciders and their new bourbon. For more information, visit: https://fourdaughtersvineyard.com/
