Amidst the undulating landscape, the long-standing beer and wine extravaganza unfolds, transforming grassy knolls and shady groves into a bustling hub of merriment. Over 300 craft brews and fine wines converge, offering a diverse tapestry of flavors to explore beneath the azure sky. Revelers traverse the vibrant grounds, discovering hidden gems among the brews while delighting in the rich aromas of gourmet fare prepared by local vendors. The air is alive with the rhythmic beats of live music, intertwining with the laughter and chatter of beer aficionados and wine connoisseurs alike. Amidst the convivial atmosphere, artisanal spirits stand ready to offer a spirited twist to the festivities, ensuring there's something to satisfy every palate. Whether raising a pint of frothy ale amidst the lively crowd or savoring a velvety red in a tranquil alcove, this event is a testament to the enduring camaraderie sparked by shared libations and the joy of discovering new brews and wines in the company of friends.

The Hopewell Fish and Game Association and CrocodileDog Marketing extend an invitation for you to join us at Yorktoberfest.


It's all about trying and finding that glass of wine that is juuuust right. Try as much or as little as you want. You can also just buy a bottle and sit on the grass, sip on a wine slushie, or order a case and pick it up on your way out.


Sample 20-30 breweries with a heavy lean toward the regional variety.  A perfect opportunity to try a bunch of things, not get wrapped up in hype, and still find some special things.


Let your friends buy you a Designated Driver pass. We are going to make sure you are set with water and some other surprises at times.


Can't decide? Just get everything. Our extremely limited VIP Lounge ticket gets you in the door with the Early crowd, whatever souvenir glass we have, an d a few extras. We never know the exact form it will take but you can expect at least the following:

  • A dedicated primo area of shade and comfort
  • A VIP only shitter(s)
  • Free Water
  • Tokens redeemable for things like wine slushies, cigars, food, and special beer.
  • Dedicated seating of some sort
  • Some cover in case of rain
  • More stuff…who knows?



And because York City is so much more reasonable as a host than the fair grounds, we can allow you to bring in your own food and non-alcoholic drinks. So bring in a spread. Go get some duck prosciutto and make an epic board under a tent with soft seating in our designated areas.              


    • Arrive 30 minutes before your session. It is our goal to get IDs checked and everyone banded before their wave starts. We don’t want you to lose a minute.
    • Print your ticket if you can. It's sunny out and phones aren't that bright.
    • You can bring anything you want, other than sickness and alcohol. Maybe some light lawn chairs to create a base camp under a tree? Some snacks, perhaps? Limited seating will be provided.
    • Please limit your time at the winery. Get your samples, buy your bottle/cup, ask a quick question. Move away from the winery into the open spaces as often and quickly as you can to allow others to approach the winery. You can always go back.
    • Service animals only. Be real. We don't know the temperament of your animal and plenty of people lie about it.     
    • All guests over 16 must have a ticket. Children are fine but entirely your responsibility. 




    What comes with my admission?

    Passholders are granted access to samples of their chosen ticket types, a souvenir drinking vessel, and the event.  Designated Drivers are given free water to stay hydrated for the day!  

    What about the weather?

    The festival will be rain or shine. While most of the event is held outside without cover, there is plenty of cover in case of a passing shower. We all take a chance on the rain, but we can promise the drink will keep flowing. Unless it's flowing horizontally because of dangerous winds. Than we might need to work something out.

    Are pets allowed?

    Unfortunately they are not allowed within the festival area. Documented Service Animals welcome. 

    What kind of food is going to be there?

    It's different every year. But we usually have a fair assortment of foods for all diets.

    What can we bring with us?

    Tents, popups, blankets, chairs, coolers, food, whatever. Just no alcohol. 


    No Outside Alcohol

    No Pets (Documented Service Animals Welcome)

    Pop-up tents Allowed in Designated Areas

    Rain or Shine (No Refunds)
