On June 7th, Friends of Coconino County Parks will host the 6th Annual Flagstaff Wine & Food Festival, sponsored by Findlay Toyota in Flagstaff. The event will be held at Pepsi Amphitheater at Fort Tuthill Park, an outdoor venue that sits among the beautiful pines of the Coconino National Forest. Thousands are expected to attend this year’s event.
The festival brings a blend of wine, beer and gourmet local food, offering guests the opportunity to sample international and domestic wines, spirits, craft beers and food from some of Northern Arizona’s most popular restaurants. Participating restaurants include Zenith Steakhouse at Twin Arrows Casino Resort, Horsemen Lodge, Sakura at Flagstaff’s DoubleTree Resort, The McMillian Bar and Kitchen, Sally’s BBQ and Pita Jungle, among others. Wine and spirits are provided by Southern Wine & Spirits, while Golden Eagle Distributors will provide craft beer. Sponsor SubZero/Wolf will provide the stage for free cooking demonstrations by some of the top chefs in Flagstaff.
Friends of Coconino County is a nonprofit which hosts several events annually. Proceeds from these events supplement the Coconino County Parks and Recreation Department’s budget in order to support the parks system. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to Friends of Coconino County Parks, which will benefit land conservation, park development, volunteerism, and recreational activities. “The Coconino Parks Department does a fantastic job making sure that these facilities are the best, and this is a group of individuals that want to help out the cause and make it better,” says Chairman Steve Hoshor.
Tickets are $37, and guests will get four wine or beer tastings, a souvenir wine glass, and unlimited gourmet food samples. Additional wine tastings can be purchased at the festival. This is a great opportunity to sample local fare among the cool shade of the Ponderosa Pines while supporting the Coconino County Parks and Recreation Department.
