We have 10 sites reserved and the campground is asking us to encourage folks to reserve their sites now because they have a waiting list. Please let me know if you reserve a site for this rally. Thanks, Lori

Lori, I hear we have less than 10 sites left for the rally? We had a great rally in 2014 and a greater rally in 2015 and I hear that 2016 is going to be even greater!! I am dusting off my toga and am ready to party.....

Do you have any pictures of last years rally that you can share (please leave my toga picture out)? Craig

Quick question, is it family (kids!) friendly?

Thanks,
Matt

It is (though Watkins Glenn area during race weekends can be pretty wild).

Hurry though if you plan on going, only 3 spots left after I booked my spot today.

The weekly rate is only $325 and there is lots to see and do in the Finger Lakes.

Hi Matt, the campground and our rally is family friendly. However, children cannot attend the events at the Wine Festival. The Finger Lakes area has lots of activities and parks to explore.

Matt, I may be incorrect. I just read a Trip Advisor post about children in the festival. However, Dave and I have attended for a number of years and have not seen children there. The wine tasting occurs in 5 large tents. Lots of folks are lined up to taste the wines and buy their favorites. Saturday is more crowded than Sunday. We will have a table in the live music area to take a break from the crowds but that area is also crowded. Friday night's Launch of the Lake toga party is for adults. At the campground, we will share some meals and campfires. Children are very welcome there. I will post some links about the festival, the campground and the boat cruise.

Photos from the 2014 Watkins Glenn Wine Festival Rally.

The Wine Festival, State Park, Corning Glass Works, the "dinner" cruise (WOW), and some campfire fun. A great time for everyone.

Dave Swanson's camera had the wrong date loaded for the Park photos as Laura and I could not make that side trip.
