In a weekend of festivals and critters, Vino & Notes Food, Wine and Jazz Festival adds spice to the line-up. In its sixth annual year, the festival, founded by Ben and Jamie Caperton, presents another option for locals and tourists alike.
With 20 varieties of Colorado wines, two jazz bands, Max Wagner and Louis Colaiannia, and 51 vendors, Vino & Notes puts the spotlight on Memorial Park. The 3 ½-acre park is the subject of a visioning exercise by the residents of Woodland Park and Land Patterns, Inc.
“The park is a beautiful setting and every vendor has a view of Pikes Peak,” said Ben Caperton.
The festival is about drinking wine, eating good food and listening to great jazz, he added.
The festival is from 12 to 6 p.m. Aug. 3 in Memorial Park. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for people who represent the military, police and fire departments and emergency medical technicians.
Tickets are available at the Cellar Door in Woodland Park, at www.vinoandnotes.com/get-tickets or by calling 686-1409. The festival benefits local charities.
