We have a winner!

Yay! And before you get too excited, or panic because you lost your stub, we were able to call the winner because she wrote her number on the back, and she is doing a little Snoopy happy dance of joy because she hung onto her stub and is now $810 richer!

As the leaves begin to change and the fresh air turns brisk, the splendor of autumn is soon to be upon us! To kick-off this beautiful season, come and celebrate a sweet and savory weekend at the 49th Annual Wine & Harvest Festival in historic downtown Cedarburg presented by Commerce State Bank! The festival opens Saturday, September 17 from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm (with the Gruber Law Office Main Stage open later that evening until 8:30 pm playing live music) and Sunday, September 18 from 10 am - 5 pm.

Ready to help out?

We couldn't do what we do without YOU!!!! Our 2022 Wine & Harvest Festival volunteer sign-up is hot off the presses - if you're available to give us a few hours pouring beer (must be 18+) or helping with setup, tear-down and running supplies (great for teens looking for volunteer hours) we'd LOVE to have you! We even have some paid opportunities if you're interested!

Important Reminders

LEAVE YOUR PETS HOME!

As much as we love pets (and we DO!) they are NOT allowed on the Festivals Grounds! It can get crowded, there's not a lot of grass, they could get stepped on or into something, some people are scared of them....and they probably don't want to be there anyway! Plus there is an ordinance against them! (Cedarburg, WI, Sec.7-14-1, Festivals Celebration Permit: Prohibition of Animals) So please - leave your pets at home where they're safe and comfortable!

PLEASE, NO CARRY-INS

We have plenty of places for you to find delightful beverages - some of which can be consumed on the streets during Festival hours (beer and wine) and some of which must be consumed inside our bars and restaurants (hard alcohol, high ABV beers). We appreciate your cooperation!

LIMITED PARKING IS AVAILABLE

Cedarburg is 20 minutes north of Milwaukee.  Parking is available at Firemen’s Park (north of the grounds with hayride transportation to the Festival area), at the American Legion, at the Cedarburg High School and there is street parking throughout Cedarburg.  Handicapped  parking is available along Hanover Street, and motorcycle parking is available on Cleveland Street.
