May 25, 2020
We were heartbroken to learn on Friday that Burlington Wine & Food will not be able to take place in 2020.
While we had been holding out hope that there would be an opportunity to reschedule the celebration to later in the summer, Governor Scott has made the announcement that fairs, festivals and large-scale events may not be held in the months to come.
Of course, the safety of our guests, vendors, volunteers, staff and community is of paramount importance to us, so while we are disappointed, we understand and respect the decision.
Meanwhile, we have plenty of time to gear up to bring you the best celebration ever, which will now be rescheduled to June 26, 2021! For those of you who have already purchased tickets for 2020, we'll be reissuing new tickets to you this week for the new date. And if you haven't yet purchased your ticket, we'd be delighted to have you do so right away for the rescheduled event!
In the months ahead, we encourage you to continue to support all of our amazing restaurants, wineries, and specialty food and spirits producers during this challenging time. By purchasing their products at retail, enjoying a meal on an outdoor patio or through takeout, or picking up a gift card to use later, you'll help increase the likelihood that these small businesses will weather this terrible storm and be with us for many more events in the future.
We'll also be doing some brainstorming in the weeks to come to see if we can create some new opportunities to share amazing wine and food with you at smaller-scale events during the fall and winter.
On behalf of our partners and fellow small businesses, we thank you for your support and wish you all the best for good health at home.
Be well, and we look forward to being in touch soon!
Mike & Tracy Stolese
