Page Springs Cellars and celebrated Arizona Winemaker Eric Glomski announced the release of tickets for the second annual Tilted Earth Wine & Music Festival on June 19 and 20 at Riverfront Park in Cottonwood. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, March 26 through the Page Springs website.
The vibrant festival returns this year with an expanded two-day line up of well-known folk and acoustic rock entertainment like Rusted Root, Robert Earl Keen and The Lone Bellow. Wine lovers can enjoy vino from 17 Northern Arizona wineries, along with cuisine from eight gourmet food trucks from the Phoenix Street Food Coalition, including The Rocket Woodfired Pizza, The Affogato Truck, Sandra Dee’s Creole Kitchen and Burgers Amore. Additional vendors like Backstage Gastropub, Chocolita exotic raw chocolate and Local Juicery will sell a variety of other fare.
The event will also include an expanded selection of kids and family activities including a rock climbing wall, bounce house, teen gaming tent and a simulated archaeological dig hosted by Verde Valley Archaeology all at no charge. Kids crafting supplies will be provided by Verde River Valley Nature Organization for a small charge.
Attendees will also enjoy a change in event hours from 4 p.m. to midnight with music running between 5-11 p.m., which will allow event goers to enjoy the festival among the trees in the cooler evening hours.
“We’re excited to bring back the Tilted Earth Wine and Music Festival for the second year,” said Eric Glomski, winemaker and founder of Page Springs Cellars. “Last year was incredibly successful and we were able to gather some good feedback on how to make this year even better. The expansion of the festival across two days and the adjustment in hours will allow those coming from the Valley to plan an extended, more enjoyable weekend. We look forward to sharing our craft and showcasing some of the best names in Arizona wine at this year’s event.”

Last year the event raised $10,000 for a local children’s non-profit with a silent auction. This year, the festival hopes to double that amount, with 100% of the proceeds from this year’s auction benefitting Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, Prescott Creeks and the Verde Valley Humane Society.
