Oakhurst Community Park will be filled with scores of booths offering everything from collectibles to local wine samplings and more at the 21st annual Oakhurst Fall Festival, taking place Oct. 12 and 13.
The festival, formerly known as the Wine and Chocolate Festival, has grown to encompass so much more than those two, although they do play a prominent role.
“There will be ample amounts of wine from regional wineries to sample as well as offering from numerous chocolatiers,” said Darin Soukup, executive director of the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce, which puts on the event.
“The event has much more to offer as well, with artisanal cheeses, nuts, as well as beers from regional microbreweries. There will also be numerous collectibles, a silent auction, live music and a classic car show on Saturday,” Soukup continued.
The event is truly family-friendly, as there will be kids’ activities provided by the Children’s Museum of the Sierra as well as a petting zoo and a dunk tank.
In addition, local restaurants have been invited to provide a wide variety of menu options.
The Fall Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $2. Tickets for beer, wine, cheese, nut and chocolate tasting as well as and kids’ events and other activities cost $1 apiece.
