Texas Pete Spirits of Summer - June 1, 2019
Summer's hottest new festival kicks off its second year Saturday, June 1, 2019. Texas Pete Spirits of Summer Festival invites you to savor the tastes of North Carolina wine harvests, find a favorite local craft brew, and wake up your taste buds in downtown Winston-Salem, N.C.! The fiery festival puts the spotlight on local chefs, Yadkin Valley winemakers, craft brewmasters, and national recording acts for one sizzling summertime festival.
Take a seat in Restaurant Pavilion where chefs are firing up the grills and serving some of their favorite menu items, then head to the Lowe's Food Demo Tent and discover the magic of pairing food with wine and beer. Sit, share, and learn more about how to pair Southern cuisine with regional wines and craft beers.
Dance into the evening as live music rings out loud along Fourth Street -- the hub of Winston-Salem's downtown.
