The final tally for Grapefest earnings stands right now at about $388,000 and money is still being collected and tallied. This will put the festival at about 14% ahead of last year’s Grapefest. As some of you know, Grapefest proceeds benefit the Grapevine Heritage Foundation and this is a great influx of funds to the bottom line to help preserve all the great historic properties in Grapevine. Well done to the organizers for a great event that gets bigger and better every year!
We particularly enjoyed this year’s Grapefest as it was our first opportunity to take part in the People’s Choice Wine Tasting Classic. We will definitely participate next year although we will try to attend on Thursday instead of Saturday afternoon to avoid some of the crowd crush. Our usual tradition is Grapefest on Thursday but this year we went on Saturday with friends instead. Next year, we’ll talk them into a Thursday evening outing. 🙂
