Don’t Miss The 2023 Castle Rock WineFest

The 19th Annual Castle Rock WineFest

Who doesn’t love spending a warm summer day amongst neighbors and friends enjoying a beverage or two? The 19th annual Castle Rock WineFest is the perfect excuse to gather your group and enjoy an afternoon in The Meadows sampling Colorado’s finest wines. You won’t taste just one or two; you can taste 180 different wines from more than two dozen Colorado wineries. 

One of my favorite things about Castle Rock WineFest is every year, I taste a wine that I didn’t even know was possible to make. Every year, a new winery comes up with something very unique, and I end up with my new favorite wine.

I’m certainly not a wine expert, I just like to drink them, but it’s fun to talk to the different winemakers to learn about the processes it takes and the other techniques they use to make the various wines.

 WineFest Back at Bison Park

WineFest will be back at Bison Park. If you’re new to the neighborhood you can find it at 1390 Clear Sky Way, Castle Rock, CO 80109. Just behind Clear Sky Elementary School. WineFest will be on Saturday, July 15, from 2-7 pm.


The parking lot at Bison Park will be closed to the public. However, if you’re not biking, walking or taking an Uber/Lyft, you can park in the upper lot at The Douglas County Fairgrounds and take the FREE Shuttle to Bison Park. The shuttle will run continuously from 12:30 PM- 8 PM.

Great Music, Contests, and Demonstrations

And because you must have incredible food with your wine, you can experience cooking/wine demonstrations as well as food from a variety of your favorite food trucks.

After you have had plenty of samplings and maybe feeling relaxed — just saying — it happens; you might want to chill and listen to a little live music. And what’s a festival without great music? You can hear live music from some of the best bands in the area throughout the afternoon.

A Safe Ride Home

Local Lyft and Uber drivers will know  about the event. Contact your driver ahead of time to shorten your wait time.

It really is a highlight of the summer for my wife and me. We thought we would just check it out when we first moved here, and now, it’s become our annual midsummer tradition. We’ve even started inviting friends and family to join in on the fun.

After a busy start to summer, it’s the perfect time for us to enjoy an adult afternoon with friends and neighbors. Remember that the event is for 21 and older, so find a sitter or send the little ones off to Grandma and Grandpa.

Visit the 19th Annual Castle Rock WineFest website for tickets and more event information. Get your tickets early. Join the fun at one of the best events in Douglas County at Bison Park on Saturday, July 15, from 2 -7 pm.
