Get ready for a grape weekend — the 37th Annual GrapeFest kicks off today in downtown Grapevine, ~25 minutes from Fort Worth.

The four-day event is the largest wine festival in the Southwest + the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the nation. Here’s what you need to know before you merlot.

Stop and smell the rosé

More than 400 wineries and 4,400 acres of vineyards produce nearly three million gallons of Texas wine each year + this year’s festival will feature the very best Lone Star State-grown wines.

Guests can enjoy experiences like the People’s Choice Wine Tasting Classic, the Liberty Park Plaza Wine Experience, the award-winning tasting rooms on Grapevine’s Urban Wine Trail, and a charcuterie board workshop.

As the days wine down, there also will be live music performances from local artists like Joshua Ingram and Carnie and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips.

Fun for the whole family

Let the little ones explore the KidZone entertainment area featuring yard games, an inflatable obstacle course, a scavenger hunt + arts and crafts. If you’re a thrill seeker, head to the Midway — at the intersection of Jenkins and East Wall Streets — for a ride on the Ferris wheel and merry-go-round.

Be responsible

Avoid the parking fees by taking the Trinity Metro TEXRail from Fort Worth to downtown Grapevine. Riders can download the GoPass mobile app and use our code FTWT23A to get a $1 roundtrip ticket.

If you want to save even more, purchase your Grapefest ticket at the door and present your TEXRail pass for $2 off a general admission ticket.

If you’d prefer to drive, there are several places to park — find the best option for your family using this guide.

Tickets to the fun

The event kicks off today and runs through Sunday, Sept. 17. Admission is free all day today and tomorrow, Sept. 15 until 5 p.m. If you can’t make it until this weekend, several ticket options are still available.
