Mark your calendar August 15 - 18, 2013 for this year's festival. Last year was great. Read all about it. The following information is from the 2012 event. The big news is the headliner is Kenny Loggins!
If you are a foodie and a wine lover, the Mammoth Festival of Food and Wine is for you. Each year Mammoth brings together a fine assortment of wineries into the Village for their annual wine walk. Taste, sip, schmooze and see friends as you wander from station to station sampling the grapes.
The event starts on Thursday evening with a Winemaker Dinner at the Top of the Sierra; on Friday evening the event moves to The Village for the Wine Walk presented by the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation; on Saturday Mammoth Festival takes over the rustic wood site surrounded by pines and the fresh mountain air with a day full of live music and fabulous wine. More than 4,000 attendees will enjoy perfect weather, great wines, appetizing eats and amazing art. The weekend-long event concludes at Campo Mammoth in The Village with the Sunday Brunch at the restaurant.

Condo rentals in Mammoth
are particularly important as you won't want to drive after all that tasting! City Concierge can help you find accommodations just close enough so you can walk, yet far enough away so if you need peace and quiet, the bands playing won't keep you up at night. Let us help you with your Mammoth Lakes vacation rentals
that are pet friendly too. You can get more information and purchase event tickets
online as well.
So don't delay with Kenny Loggins headlining
, you'll want front row seats!
