I never miss the Castle Rock WineFest!  Its so much fun.  My girlfriend and I look forward to it every year.  It just keeps getting bigger and better.   May have to invest in a wagon this year to carry all the wine we purchase.  If you haven’t attended before, I highly suggest you do.  The Chamber does a great job, the atmosphere is so upbeat & enjoyable.  You won’t be disappointed!

Karen P., WineFest Attendee (Repeat guest)

“I just want to thank you and commend you for the Star Lighting event. I live near Southwest Plaza so I had never been, but a friend suggested that we go to Castle Rock as she had heard it was a great event. As an event planner of 25 years, I was blown away by the size, the attendance, the organization, and the participation. I know first-hand that an event of this size is not easy. Your downtown area was beautifully decorated, and it truly felt like a small town Hallmark movie! I will be sure to support future events and visit Castle Rock more frequently. I also had never heard the Castle Rock Star poem, and it was beautiful. Anyway, I just want to say that my friend and I were both very, very impressed with the whole evening. I will definitely be making this an annual tradition, and have already put it on my calendar for next year.”

I don’t even like wine, and I had a great time at the wine fest! Wife loves it so I tagged alone….glad I did! Two words… Grape Stomp!  That was hilarious! Music was great, some nice vendors and actually found a few wines I enjoyed.  Spent some time in the beer garden chatting it up with the breweries, great people!  We will definitely be back!

Very happy to hear you added the beer garden to the Wine Fest.  Great addition! Thank you for taking our suggestions. Looking forward to next year’s event.

I love the Fair Parade the chamber puts on.  My five year grand daughter enjoys seeing the Fair Royalty on the horses.  She says she wants to do that when she grows up! Great family event, thank you!
