The 9th Annual Grand Wine Festival, taking place on Saturday, January 27 – Sunday, January 28, 2018, at Heritage Square Park in downtown Phoenix, is now expanding by 15,000 square feet with the closure of 6th Street, making it the largest Arizona wine-only event in the state.

Hosted by the Arizona Wine Growers Association (AWGA) and azcentral, the two-day festival, preceded by the sold out Grand Wine Gala on Friday, January 26 where winners of the azcentral Arizona Wine Competition will be announced, will feature more than 30 Arizona wineries pouring over 200 wines, along with live music, food trucks and other local vendors.

“We already have a record number of both wineries in attendance and wines being poured at this year’s festival, but now having the extra space will allow for record-breaking attendance numbers as well,” said Brian Predmore, president of the Arizona Wine Growers Association.
