This Weekend: Raley’s Grape Escape – Saturday, June 2
The summer months are here, friends, and that means it is time for festivals galore. This weekend brings a Sacramento region classic: the Raley’s Grape Escape.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of this spectacular event, which takes place this Saturday, June 2, from 4- 7 p.m. at Cesar Chavez Park. The Raley’s Grape Escape is open to those 21 and over, and more than 60 wineries from regional counties like Sacramento, Yolo, San Joaquin and Amador will feature 200 different wines. Yes, please!
In addition to sipping a variety of fabulous wines, the food options will be amazing. More than 40 area restaurants and breweries will be on hand to sample, including Red Rabbit, Ruhstaller, Pizza Rock, Mulvaney’s B&L and Restaurant Thir13en.
But the food and wine fun doesn’t stop there. The day will also feature a chef challenge consisting of three of Sacramento’s most praised chefs: Oliver Ridgeway of Grange Restaurant, David English of The Press Bistro & Bar and Carina Lampkin of the newly opened Blackbird Kitchen & Bar.
Head to Cesar Chavez Park this weekend, and check out why Sacramento is a premier destination for divine food and wine! Tickets are $35 at local Raley’s and Bel Air stores, $40 at RaleysGrapeEscape.com and $50 at the door.
