Music & Wine Festival
Let’s Raise a Glass to YOU!
Thank you to everyone that joined us on June 3rd-4th to Raise a Glass in support of arts education at the 2017 Music & Wine Festival Presented by Bank of America. This was a signature fundraising event for our organization and just a great way to kickoff the summer at Appel Farm. We hope that you had a wonderful time and enjoyed all of the performers, vendors, crafters, wineries and vineyards who made this year’s festival such a success!
This special two-day event brought together regional artists, musicians, crafters, local wineries and vineyards. The festivities started on June 3, at 3:00 pm with performances by Hotsy Totsy, Christopher Davis-Shannon, JUTUAN and continued into the early evening, culminating with a concert at twilight with Swing that Cat.
As an additional bonus, Festival guests were invited to enjoy the Overnight Experience. This experience included the opportunity to camp overnight at Appel Farm while enjoying a bonfire, s’mores and a private concert under the stars. On Sunday, June 4, the festival began at 12:00pm featuring Deidre Finnegan and Dave Cohen, Greg Jones Project, and Joe Crookston. David Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket, which features members of The Hooters, The A’s, The Soul Survivors, Smash Palace, Ben Arnold, and Jeffrey Gaines closed out the festival in grand fashion.
Other highlights included:
- A Sunday morning South Jersey Cycling Tour of rural Salem and Gloucester Counties sponsored by Subaru of America.
- Kid’s Camp –a fun-filled day of camp activities run by the Appel Farm Camp Counselors.
