FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We all have questions…
Maybe we can answer yours here.
Do I need tickets?
Yes, you will need to purchase tickets for alcoholic beverage and food samples. Other food and drink will be available for purchase from the vendors. Admission and alcohol purchases will require a valid state or federal ID proving that the individual is 21 years of age or older. Save money by purchasing your tickets early and avoid the risk of sell out on the day of the event. What is the best way to experience The Verde Valley Wine Festival? Be a VIP! These tickets are popular and always sell out! VIP tickets give you 1-hour early entry, exclusive access to the VIP tent, a swag bag, and so much more. Platinum VIP gives you everything that you get with regular VIP, and it adds the Pre-Festival Celebration Event with special wine and culinary options along with musical entertainment, live auction and preferred parking for the festival.
Will my tickets be mailed to me?
Please note: All tickets are sent electronically. Nothing will be physically sent to you.
