Home to a healthy brewery, pub, and restaurant scene, not to mention a number of award-winning, Galena/Jo Daviess County wineries and vineyards, it’s no wonder the Galena Food and Wine Festival continues to be such a success.
Fergedaboudit Vineyard and Winery are here, along with Galena Cellars Vineyard & Winery, Massbach Ridge Winery, and Galena’s Rocky Water Winery. Galena’s Blaum Bros. Distilling Co. and Galena Brewing Company round out the Jo Daviess County craft brewing and distilling scene.
The food exhibitor list for the Galena Food and Wine Festival reads like a who’s who of Galena-area dining establishments:
BBQ & Smoke Haus
Cindy’s Classic Catering
Embe Eatery & Lounge
Fried Green Tomatoes
Log Cabin Steakhouse
Market House Restaurant
Held Friday, September 5, 2014, from 6pm to 8:30 pm at the Galena Convention Center, the Galena Food and Wine Festival will feature upwards of 200 different items to sample from Galena area restaurants and a similar variety of wines to taste!
The 2014 Galena Food and Wine Festival also features live entertainment, a raffle, and a silent auction. A portion of the proceeds from the Galena Food and Wine Festival go to benefit the Galena Art and Recreation Center.
