About the event:
Vintage & Vine, the fine wine and food festival is the main annual fundraiser for Strawbery Banke Museum. 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.’

Presenting innovative bites from grills at “center-stage” while dozens of the Greater Seacoast’s best chefs and caterers present their best “grazing” specialties. The mini wine auction adds to the excitement of the evening – and the funds raised for Strawbery Banke educational programs and preservation efforts.

Take full advantage of the experience:

  • Stroll the historic neighborhood when the gardens are at a high-summer peak
  • Sample wonderful wines
  • Savor the culinary delights of the star chefs, caterers, and restaurant partners

All attendees must be 21+.

  • VIP Admission (4-7:30 PM): $150*
  • VIP Designated Driver (4-7:30 PM):  $45
