March 17, 2014. The Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival, which this year will take place April 10-13, is still taking applications for North Carolina Wine, craft beer and local food vendors to fill the tents at this year’s event.

The festival, held in beautiful downtown Blowing Rock this spring, will bring together more than 60 North Carolina wineries, vineyards and more, which will provide guests with more than 300 different wines to taste and enjoy. 

“We will allow any North Carolina winery to come in because we really want to support the North Carolina wineries for sure!” said Billie Rogers, events coordinator at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce.

The 9th annual Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival is one of the most highly-anticipated annual events in the High Country.
