Winterfest 2010: Jazz on the Vine

winterfest_date It’s that time of year again here on Long Island.  Long Island warms up the winter with it own focus on the east end.  This is the third year that vineyards will be hosting live, FREE jazz concerts over the course of 6 weekends.

Winterfest kicks off on February 13th and continues through March 21st.  There are a total of over 70 FREE jazz concerts at winery tasting rooms and other venue’s across the east end.

There are restaurants having specials on those weekends and there are great getaway packages at some participating bed and breakfasts too.

Here is a schedule of the vineyards that are hosting free jazz concerts and who will be performing.

Here is a calendar of events for the 6 weekends.  The concerts had a preview this past weekend at Raphael Vineyards and there is also another preview at Wolffer Estate Vineyards on Friday at 7PM.  But things really get going on Saturday February 13th at 1PM.

Here is a link to find out where there will be special packages and offers across jazz_logo the East End that coincide with Winterfest 2010.

I will post on the blog often when I am going to be at an event.  Maybe we could have a mini meet up if schedules allow.

Enjoy Winterfest and be sure to take advantage of the free Jazz concerts and the wonderful local wine at the various tasting rooms across the East End!
