Warmer weather and Covid vaccination is approaching and with that, Mifflinburg is coming out of hibernation and a yearlong lock down with a fantastic spring event that has been in the planning stages since winter of 2020!
Mifflinburg's Spring Flight Festival with Wine, Beer, Distilled Spirits and more as well as great Blues Music, Food, and Crafts takes place Saturday, May 22, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the VFW Carnival Grounds along Route 45.
The event is sponsored by the Mifflinburg Heritage & Revitalization Association (MHRA) and will feature at least 15 wineries, distilleries, breweries and meaderies for tasting and purchasing.
Best of all an all-day Blues Festival featuring Sunbury band Blue River Soul, the Gabe Stillman Band from Williamsport, the Alexis P. Suter Band out of Brooklyn, and Ray Fuller & the Bluesrockers from Ohio!
Tasting will finish at 5 p.m. but the fun will continue on through the evening! Bottle and glass sales will still be available into the evening at several of the wineries.
Tasting package is $40 and is now on sale at www.mifflinburg.com. Your $40 will include six hours of tasting, a souvenir Pilsner or wine glass, a drawstring bag, bottle opener, premium seating for music, a $10 Oktoberfest coupon and more.
Admission to the carnival grounds is free! MHRA will ask for a donation for the blues festival on the day of the festival unless you have purchased tasting wristbands if you wish to sit at the stage.
There will be a tent for inclement weather and you are encouraged to bring your lawn chairs and stay the day. This event is held rain or shine. Check out the MHRA website www.mifflinburgpa.com for daily information and tickets. With the loosening of state Covid restrictions, MHRA hopes to fill the carnival grounds with lovers of music, families, wine and beer enthusiasts and much more.
The Festival is still seeking sponsors, artisans and crafters, some food vendors and can still squeeze in a winery or brewery as well! For more information on how to join the fun and support MHRA, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-966-1120.
