Live Jazz Music
Nothing goes with wine better than Jazz. You can enjoy the beauty surrounding as the music fills the air. Aimee Nolte, jazz musician and singer, and guitarist Hideaki Tokunaga will entertain us throughout the afternoon.
Aimee is a Weaverville native, now living in L.A. Aimee and Hideaki perform weekly at "Bobby London" in Koreatown. Her first CD is "Up Till Now". We hope that you can join us. Listen to music clips...

Contestants will bring extra samples for your tasting. If you like an appetizer, you can use one of your voting tickets to help her or him win the Crowd Favorite award. To add to the fun, you can purchase extra voting tickets for $2/ea and "stuff" the ballot box. The contestant with the most "votes" wins. The proceeds from the extra voting ticket sales are split 50/50 with the Crowd Favorite winner.
Microbrews and Food
At the Fest, you can purchase some of our favorite local microbrews - Etna Brewing and Lost Coast.
The Weaverville Clampers will be here cooking their excellent Philly Steak and grilled chicken sandwiches. If you have never tasted the Clampers' cooking, you are in for a treat. If you have, you know how good these sandwiches are.
Silent Auction and 50/50 Raffle
Throughout the event, you can purchase tickets for our 50/50 raffle. We will hold 2 drawings for a raffle winner; one at 5:00 pm and the other at 7:00pm. The raffle money collected in the preceding 2 hour period will be split between the winner and the Trinity Center VFD.
Bidding on silent auction items is available during the event with the winners announced at the end of the day.
General admission is free. Come enjoy the activity and music on the lawn.
