Spirits reign at 16th annual Capital Food and Wine Festival

Feb. 24, 2005

Lacey, Wash. –An annual rite of spring in the South Sound area, the Capital Food and Wine Festival will be from noon to 10 p.m. March 19 at Saint Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E. Sponsored by the Saint Martin’s Alumni Association, the event raises money for association scholarships to students attending or entering Saint Martin's College.

Now in its 16th year, the taste-full festival has grown larger and better than ever. This year, festival-goers can sip the creations of more than 30 Northwest vintners, taste specialties of some 20 restaurants and food vendors and sample the frosty wares of area microbreweries. Live entertainment will be featured throughout the day on the festival’s two stages.

Wine festival collectors will have opportunities to add to their collections from an array of souvenir wine glasses, shirts and other festival mementos.

Entry tickets are $12 at the door or can be purchased for $10 in advance at the Saint Martin’s Pavilion office, Twin County Credit Unions, Ralph’s Thriftway and Bayview Market.
