Salem Spring Fling: A Garden of Earthly Delights! is held each March at Old Town Hall in the heart of Salem, Massachusetts, a beautiful, historic seaport. The Festival, which is fashioned after the Bacchanalia - a religious festival in honor of the wine god Dionysus or, as the Romans called him, Bacchus - marks the end of winter for New Englanders by indulging in the finest wines, craft beers and mouth watering food from North Shore restauranteurs
Historically, the Bacchanalia was held in mid-March and priests and priestesses adorned with garlands of ivy would carry wine, honey, and cakes throughout Rome , celebrating and expressing themselves freely through music and pleasure.
This modern day version - Spring Fling - features fine wines plus international and local craft beers. Local restaurants offer a variety of delectable culinary delights! Truly a party fit for Bacchus!
