wine  jazz festival 002

The 12th Annual Manassas Wine & Jazz Festival is back on Sunday, June 19 from 12-7  p.m. on the Manassas Museum Lawn.

Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day at this day-long event with plenty for all to enjoy. Featuring Virginia farm wineries and two local breweries, the event is a great kickoff to summer as people plan their weekend getaways.

Manassas’ Wine & Jazz Festival has annually been held on Father’s Day and has expanded from the Harris Pavilion to the Museum Lawn. It’s a great event for everyone! Families can come to enjoy the day with great live jazz performances and high-end novelty crafters. The entertainment stage will host the Robert Jospe Express, the Dave Wilson Quartet and back again this year is headline jazz performer Marcus Johnson.

“Marcus Johnson has become a staple in this festival. Year after year people come strictly to see him perform and then get to experience all that the festival has to offer,” said HMI’s Executive Director Debbie Haight.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs and find a spot on the front of the museum lawn at the stage to relax and enjoy the jazz music. After you’ve finished tasting all of the wines, attendees can purchase their favorite bottle and enjoy it at the festival or have it collected to pick up at the end of the day.

This year, the VIP ticket option has been upgraded significantly with a limited number of available tickets. Not only will VIP ticket holders get to enter an hour early at 11am, they will also receive a $10 gift card to the shops and restaurants in historic downtown Manassas, and complimentary water. Attendees who purchase a VIP ticket will receive 6 exclusive wine and food pairings on each hour in a secluded VIP tent. They will receive a description from each winery along with the restaurant or food vendor who is pairing with their wines. The VIP experience is sure to add additional excitement to an already fun-filled day.

Tickets for the festival are on sale via MissionTix and can be found at www.visitmanassas.org. Tickets will be on sale the day of the event but prices will go up. For more information on all of the events going on in historic downtown Manassas, go to www.visitmanassas.org
