Committee members of the Galena Wine Lovers’ Weekend and ARC Taste of Galena have come together to plan a new event slated for Friday, September 6, 2013 from 7-10 pm at the Galena Convention Center, 900 Galena Square Drive.

The Galena Food and Wine Festival aspires to be a culinary dream featuring the talents of Galena area restaurants as well wine tasting—showcasing approximately 150 varieties—sponsored by Family Beer & Liquor.

"We are excited to be working with the Wine Lovers' Weekend committee to launch this new event. This event will not replace the ARC Taste of Galena we hold in February, but rather will be a nice compliment featuring 12 area restaurants", said Sarah Petersen, representing the ARC Taste of Galena.

Tickets for the Galena Food and Wine Festival are $50 per person and available online: www.galenafoodandwinefestival.com. "We highly recommend purchasing tickets early as our sister events Galena Wine Lovers' Weekend and ARC Taste of Galena have quickly sold out in advance", said Fred Bonnet, of Fried Green Tomatoes Restaurant and representing Galena Wine Lovers Weekend.

The event - with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Galena Art and Recreation Center - will also include live music, a raffle and silent auction.

In June 2013, Fodors named Galena, Illinois as one of the best summer getaways near Chicago, Illinois, and best for food and wine, girlfriends and romance. Find out more about more great Galena wine, beer and culinary events, including an upcoming attempt to break the world record for the longest toast November 22, 2013 at Nouveau Wine Weekend.
