In March, the festival invites five wine experts to sample entries from wineries attending our festival. Guided by their collective input, the festival awards dozens of entries with gold, silver, and bronze awards to the wines that best represent their varietal style.
Immediately following the official wine competition, the public is invited to sample the wines that evening during our UnWined ticketed event, which will be held in March at the Liberty Theatre in Astoria – attendees get a sneak peek at the wineries that will be at the festival in April.
Stay tuned for the 2024 event date.
Come have some fun with us as we UnWined!
The chamber appreciates the help of volunteers for the WINE COMPETITION for the Astoria-Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival. Typically held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. upstairs at the Liberty Theater before the UnWined event. Approximately 10 volunteers are needed to carry flights of wine to the judges, wash glasses, open wine bottles, etc. Lunch, snacks & entry to the evening event will be provided.
We are also seeking volunteers to assist with the ticketed public event, UNWINED, in the evening from 4 to 8:30 p.m.taking place immediately after the wine competition. About 25 volunteers are needed to pour wine tastes for the public, clear away and wash glasses, check in registered attendees, etc.
Volunteers must be 21 or older for these events.
Stay tuned for the volunteer schedule to be released in early 2024.
