Vintage & Vine, the fine wine and food festival and silent auction, is the main annual fund-raiser for Strawbery Banke Museum. Scheduled for 5-7:30 pm (4 pm admission for VIP) on Saturday, September 9th, the event is championed by the Board of Trustees and takes place when the museum is at its finest, burnished to perfection by the season and the thousands of visitors who’ve put Strawbery Banke at the top of the TripAdvisor list of ‘things to do.’
Vintage & Vine is one of the harbingers of the harvest season and offers a full evening of entertainment under sparkling September skies. Premier wine vendors Horizon Beverage and Pine State Beverage Company, preferred vendor Perfecta Wines lead a group of a dozen other wine distributors to offer a huge range of wines to sample and to order.
Presenting innovative bites from grills at “center-stage” while dozens of the seacoast’s best chefs present their best “grazing” specialties. The wine raffle and silent auction of items ranging from trips to ‘behind the scene’ tours to shows and home décor, add to the excitement of the evening – and the funds raised for Strawbery Banke educational programs and preservation efforts. Cuppa Joe provides the musical accompaniment of jazz and blues under the September sky.
