With more than 180 varieties of Colorado wine from two dozen wineries, the Castle Rock WineFest 2018 is the premier wine tasting event of the summer season!

Calling all wine lovers! Get ready for one of the best outdoor wine tasting events of the summer: the Castle Rock WineFest 2018. Hosted by the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce, the wine festival has been offering some of the state's finest wines for 15 years and boasts an array of local food trucks, live music, and so much more.

The first 2,000 attendees will receive some awesome swag (free wine bottle tote and wine glass).

When: Saturday, July 21 from 2 to 8 p.m.
Where: Butterfield Crossing Park in the Meadows, Castle Rock

If you're more inclined to drink at this event, tickets cost $35 per person. But if you'd prefer not to drink, designated driver tickets are $17 per person. Purchase tickets online. Please keep in mind that ticket prices do NOT include parking ($10). There will, however, be a free shuttle service from the Outlets at Castle Rock to the event, from 1:30 to 8:30 p.m. And after July 18, ticket prices will increase to $45 so make sure you get them ASAP!

Some of the participating wineries include Aspen Peak Cellars, Avanti Winery, Black Arts Cellars, Carboy Winery, Chill Switch Wines, Dragon Meadery, Hand and Stone Massage, Ladron Cellars, Mesa Park Vineyards, and Mountain View Winery, among others. View the full list of wineries HERE.

If you're interested in becoming a vendor at the WineFest, according to the event's website, they are still taking applications for wineries, food trucks, and art and craft retailers. Please have your applications submitted before July 21. They are also in need of volunteers -- and just as an incentive for you to volunteer your time, a three-hour shift will get you FREE admission to the event. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today!
