15 Arizona wineries pour into Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival

Lots of wine & celebratory times to have with your friends & family.

The weather is cooling down and the wine will be flowing at the Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival on Saturday, October 19 – Sunday, October 20.

From just a little more than 250 attendees to more than 5,000 people, the festival continues to expand every year.

This season, there will be at least 15 Arizona Wineries, five live bands, more than 70 art and craft vendors, as well as multiple food venues.

To put the festival’s growth in perspective, Fodor’s Travel has it listed as one of the top 10 wine festivals in North America.

Wine-tasting tickets range from $20 – $45 per person — depending on the type of experience you’re looking for. Either way, everyone attending the festival will get a commemorative glass.
