Committee members of the Galena Wine Lovers’ Weekend and ARC Taste of Galena have come together to plan the second annual Galena Food & Wine Festival, slated for Friday, September 5, 2014 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Galena Convention Center, 900 Galena Square Drive.

The Galena Food and Wine Festival aspires to be a culinary dream featuring the talents of Galena area restaurants as well wine tasting—showcasing approximately 200 varieties—sponsored by Family Beer & Liquor.

“We had tremendous feedback to last year’s first annual event,” said Dave Decker, executive director of the Galena Art & Recreation Center. “Guests loved the wine tasting paired with samples from our wonderful Galena restaurants and caterers. It was a fun evening.”

Tickets for the Galena Food and Wine Festival are $50 per person and available online: “We highly recommend purchasing tickets early as our sister events—Galena Wine Lovers’ Weekend and ARC Taste of Galena—have quickly sold out in advance,” said Fred Bonnet, of Fried Green Tomatoes Restaurant and representing Galena Wine Lovers’ Weekend.

The event—with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Galena Art and Recreation Center—will also include live music, a raffle and silent auction.
