VinoFest, the DC metro’s top festival for bringing together music and wine, returns for a third year this Saturday, May 7, from 3-10pm at Yards Park. And you have a chance to win a pair of tickets to go with Parklife DC!

VinoFest DC Wine and Music Festival has been at a different location each year so far, first at Union Market, then at Storey Park, but its new home in the attractive and well-maintained Yards Park is the best location for the festival yet! Yards Park is big, clean, and easily accessible by public transportation.

The 2016 edition of VinoFest also features its most ambitious music lineup to date, with the likes of The Original Wailers, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, and Trouble Funk, among others, providing the festival’s entertainment! And of course, guests enjoy eight 2-ounce wine tastings from a selection of 20+ vineyards with their admission.

Here is the full VinoFest music lineup:

  • Jon Batiste and Stay Human
  • The Original Wailers
  • Trouble Funk
  • Paperhaus
  • Tigers are Bad for Horses
  • Anastasia Antoinette

  1. The trouble with funk(y) wine is that it is bad for horses. In order to stay human, we need to fill our paperhaus with proper wine and let our inner tiger wail.

  2. My dad was the one who told be about Trouble Funk. Love him to death but he’s usually not up on what’s “hip”. A few years ago we listened to “straight up funk go go style” together and I had to admit, my old man knew a thing or two about music for once.

  3. if “the original wailers” isn’t the best name you’ve ever heard of for a band, you’re lying. #WailOn

  4. I would love to attend this event at Yards Park. I have never been to that area of DC and am dying to go — never heard any of the artists performing but can’t wait to hear something new if I am picked!

  5. Beer was made by man, wine was made by God…. FACT! Hoping to go jam to some good music and drink vino.

  6. Eyes like magnets.. magnets mining, mining traces, tracing circles, circles dancing in your mind… ~ Paperhaus, one of my all time FAVORITES, “Silent Speaking”, I would be psyched to hear them play it live!

  7. Coming home to DC for the weekend to see my best friend Julia for the first time in 5 months!!! She is a kindergarten teacher and would love to surprise her with tickets for teacher appreciation week to thank her for all that she does!!
