You’re gonna love this BETTER destination event!

The Wine Festival at The Plains happens rain or shine. Because the field has been soaked this week, the Commonwealth Cup polo match may be moved over to the arena instead of on the grass polo field to be certain it is safe for the horses and players. Sunday’s Hall of Fame Polo Challenge is expected to be on the Grass Field as planned.

Have you seen our really big tents???

Essentially, you can do this entire event all indoors under our massive wine, food and culinary stage tents that provide plenty of shade or cover.

It’s not just the vendors who stay dry & in the shade at this festival!!

We have massive 40’x180′ Exhibit Halls and a 50’x20′ Seminar room – all under cover. Your ticket is good for one day only – you can choose either day – that’s our way of offering you weather insurance. Refunds cannot be provided for this event.


Swanky casual is the idea. Whether you choose a sundress and big fancy hat or comfy khakis, peddle pushers or shorts, a polo shirt, collar shirt, sweater or blazer you’ll fit right in with the crowd.

Be sure to bring an official Photo ID (drivers license, passport, state issued ID) You will NOT get a Tasters Ticket without official PHOTO IDENTIFICATION that proves you are over 21. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We will have some free umbrella table seating but you might have to be quick to get it.
