Allen Food and Wine FestivalFor those who believe that nothing makes a great dish like a great glass (of wine), Allen is the place to be on Saturday, April 13.

The first annual Allen Food Wine Festival will be serving up hundreds of fantastic wines from around the world along with tastes from your favorite Allen restaurants.

Bring your friends and family to enjoy culinary demonstrations, grape stomping and shopping at more than 50 pop-up boutiques at the festival’s host location, The Village at Allen. The music will be as free-flowing as the vino, courtesy of entertainment sponsor Harley Davidson of Dallas.

Best of all, the festival is totally free to attend. Wine tasting passes are $40, which includes 20 wine tastings as well as a signature event wine glass and lanyard. Food will be available for purchase.

“This is going to be one of the best tasting festivals of the season,” said Christina Eschbacher, Marketing Manager at The Village at Allen. “We’ll have wines from Europe, South America and Napa Valley, not to mention some local vintages that we think lots of people will find delightful.”

If you wish to make a weekend of it, Ms. Eschbacher says that eight Allen hotels are just minutes away from the event by taxi or rideshare.

The Allen Food Wine Festival is presented by Crest Exteriors and benefits Allen Community Outreach, a local nonprofit that helps families gain financial security while avoiding hunger and homelessness.

Remember, never drink and drive. Please use rideshare services, take a taxi or designate a driver to and from the event.
