Visit Hale Farm & Village July 14 and 15 for the annual Music in the Valley Folk and Wine Festival.
The Music in the Valley Folk and Wine Festival, supported by Folknet, The Wine Buzz and the Peninsula Foundation / GAR Hall is an opportunity to enjoy local musicians, food and wine. Visitors are welcome to stop and listen to the musicians as they tour the historic grounds, or settle in and catch a main stage performance between noon and 6:30 p.m. daily. Guests can also sample and purchase wine from 11 Ohio based wineries, such as CLE Urban Winery, Gervasi Vineyards, The Winery at Spring Hill, Barrel Run and many more.
Local food trucks and vendors will offer selections for all palates. This year’s festival will feature regional music acts on the main stage under a large tent in the Village Green. Take in the sounds of Ohio musicians such as Charlie Mosbrook and Red Brick Rhoades or catch casual jams throughout the property.
