City Winery

Although the venue has become known for its concerts and upcoming world team tennis matches, Forest Hills Stadium concert promoter Madison House Presents has partnered with City Winery for the City Winery Open, a new music, wine and food festival.

The two-day event, taking place on Saturday, September 17, and Sunday, September 18, will feature 10 artists. Aretha Franklin will headline the festival with a performance on Sunday night. Shows by Gillian Welch, Dawes, Josh Ritter and Houndmouth will precede Franklin throughout Sunday.

Sheryl Crow, The Wallflowers, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Deer Tick and The Wild Feathers will perform on Saturday. While visitors must be 21 years of age to consume alcohol, the performances are open to all ages.

Some of New York’s top chefs and restauranteurs, like Daniel Boulud, Drew Nieporent, David Waltuck, Marcus Samuelsson, and Joey Campanaro, will be among the 40 chefs and restaurants featured at the festival. More than 75 wineries from around the world will also participate.

The festival will be a cashless event, with festival goers purchasing wine and food with “tastes.” Wine options will be available for either one, two or three tastes, while food samples can be purchased for one “taste” each.
