This weekend Cannon Falls will host their eighth annual Cannon Falls Wine & Art Fest at Hannah’s Bend Park, just 30 miles south of St. Paul.
The two-day, riverfront fest, hosted by Southern MN Wine Grower Alliance, features 11 wineries and one orchard, 70-plus art vendors, and a handful of food options for a fun, family- and pet-friendly event. Taste wine and cider from Schram Vineyards, Cannon River Winery, and Hoch Orchard (a full list can be seen here) and eat food from Ruhland’s Strudel Haus, White Oak Wood Fired Pizza, Cannon Falls Lions Club (known for their steak sandwiches), and Cannon River Catering before browsing through jewelry, pottery, candles, and other homemade goods at the free art festival.
Visitors interested in participating in the wine and cider tastings can purchase tickets online beforehand—$25 for 10 tastings and $35 for 15 tastings—or the day of the festival. Free parking is available across the street at the Cannon Valley Fairgrounds.
