22nd Annual Harvest Festival Near Orlando

From June 22-24th, the Lakeridge Winery will be holding its 22nd Annual Harvest Festival. The festival will include the annual “stomping of the grapes,” along with several other family-friendly activities. Over 80 local artists and crafters will be displaying their work and live musical entertainment will be going on throughout the weekend. As you enjoy the festivities, be sure to try the Lakeridge wine, beer, soft drinks and delicious treats, all available for purchase. There will also be complimentary winery tours and tastings over the weekend.

Lakeridge Winery is nestled in the hills of Clermont. If you miss the festival, the winery still offers complimentary tours and tastings seven days a week, Monday-Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm every 15-20 minutes. The tours begin in a theater where a 12 minute video shows the process of wine making starting with the growing of the grapes and ending with the bottling and labeling. You’ll walk along the cat walk and see the production area as well as get an excellent view of the vineyard from the Lakeridge balcony. Feel free to visit the gift shop afterward to purchase items and accessories.

The Harvest Festival weekend lineup is as follows:

June 22

JAZZ One: 10:00 am-1:30 pm
BlueStone: 2:00 pm-5:00 pm

June 23

The Ladyz & The Boyz: 10:00 am-1:30 pm

The winery is just a quick, 30 minute drive from all of the major Orlando attractions, so the festival is an excellent addition to any Orlando vacation. Other fun activities in Orlando include the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, SeaWorld and Universal Studios. If you’re looking for extra special lodging in the area, try out one of the fun Disney resorts, like Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge or Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort.
