North Country fest an artisans’ showcase

10 Aug

OGDENSBURG, NY — The 2nd annual North Country Wine, Beer & Food Festival is shaping up as a two-day event that will be the showcase for artisans of both consumables and crafts.

The event, sponsored by the Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce, will be held Saturday and Sunday this week, August 14-15, at both the Lockwood Civic Center and on the river at the Dobisky Visitors Center.

At Lockwood, vendors will be offering samples of New York State wines, craft beers, cheeses, maple and honey products, sausage, baked goods, sauces, spices, locally-grown herbs, vegetables and fresh ground coffee.

At Dobisky, just across the Oswegatchie River, regional artisans will demonstrate and sell their craft works. In addition, live entertainment under the tent, Texas-style barbecue and a beer tent will be available just outside the building.

Admission is $5 for adults and includes a free embossed souvenir wine glass. Tickets are on sale all Price Chopper stores. Additional information: (315) 393-3620.
