Don’t Miss The 2024 Castle Rock WineFest

The 20th Annual Castle Rock WineFest

Who doesn’t love spending a warm summer day amongst neighbors and friends enjoying a beverage or two? The 20th 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 wines from more than two dozen Colorado wineries.

One of my favorite things about the Castle Rock WineFest is that 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 unique, and I end up with my new favorite wine.

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

WineFest Returns to Butterfield Crossing Park

WineFest will return to Butterfield Crossing Park on Saturday, July 13, 2024, from 2 to 7 pm.


The parking lot at Butterfield Crossing Park will be open for handicapped parking only. 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 Butterfield 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 and food from 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 I. We thought we would 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 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 20th 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 Butterfield Crossing Park on Saturday, July 13, 2024, from 2 –7 pm.
