3K1A is excited to have been tapped by VinoFest to manage the digital marketing and communications strategies for the upcoming wine festival. We will be working to exectuve the third iteration of the annual wine, food and music festival on Saturday, May 7, at Yards Park on the Southwest Waterfront in Washington, D.C.
VinoFest combines wine tastings from 25 vineyards from around the region and around the world with area food favorites and live music. This year’s headliners are The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s in-house band, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, along with Bob Marley’s original band, The Original Wailers. Tickets to the all-day festival go on sale Wednesday, March 16 at 10am at VinoFest.co. VinoFest has partnered with Martha Table and Dreaming Out Load to provide community service opportunities, during the month of April, at Healthy Markets (pop-up style markets where students, families, and community members can access healthy food and cooking tools and tips) in exchange for free admission to the festival.
VinoFest will showcase wines from local and global vineyards including Justin Vineyards, One Hope Wine, Da Luca, House Jam, Seven Sisters, Truvee Wines , Gerard Bertrand, and Lobetia Organic, with additional wineries to be announced in the coming weeks. In addition to indulging in the eight tastings included with the admission price, revelers can purchase a glass or bottle of their favorite wine to share with friends while taking in the unique sounds of the main stage. For foodie lovers, Milk Bar, Toki Underground/MakettoTimber Pizza and Buredo, District Doughnuts, and other local restaurants, will offer fare designed to complement the day’s tastings. To complete the festival, other libations will be available in the Casamigos Tequila tent, the beer garden by DC favorite, 3 Stars Brewing Co., as well as bourbon and vodka cocktails.
VinoFest will take place from 5pm to 10pm on Saturday, May 7 at The Yards Park (355 Water Street Southeast, Washington, DC 20003), located just blocks from Nationals Park and the Navy Yard Metro station.
