WARETOWN, NJ – Ocean Township government officials hoped the third time would be a charm when it came to rescheduling the Waretown Wine Festival. Unfortunately, they weren’t that lucky.
“The Wine Festival is not going to be happening this year,” announced Township Committeeman Ken Baulderstone. “The organizer, Allen Consulting, Inc. has contacted the township and cancelled the event for 2021.”
According to Baulderstone, the decision came after speaking with wineries and vendors. The event was originally scheduled for spring of 2020 and moved to September of last year. The most recent reschedule put the event on the calendar for April 24-25, a now canceled date.
Sylvia Allen of Allen Consulting sent out a press release regarding the change and attributed it to the COVID-19 pandemic and its continuing impact on the nation. She expressed concerns regarding the health and safety of festivalgoers, vendors, wineries, and others who either attend or serve those in attendance at the festival.
“They are hoping to come back in 2022,” Baulderstone shared.
Originally dubbed the Waretown Spring Wine Festival, the township’s fifth and last celebration occurred in 2019. Festival goers purchased flat rate tickets for entrance fees as non-drinkers or to join the festivities with wine tasting stations.
Tickets already purchased through Groupon and Eventbrite can be applied to next year’s event. More information can be found by visiting www.waretownwinefestival.com.
