My Favourite Anna Maria Island Festival


Anna Maria Island

Food and Wine on Pine Festival

UPDATE:

Sadly, as of 2017 the organizers have decided to cancel this event. But you can find great wine tastings at local vendors on Anna Maria Island throughout the year. Like the Olive Oil Outpost on Pine Ave., The Waterfront Restaurant and more...

I'm letting the cat out of the bag and letting you in on an Insider's Secret.... my favourite festival on the island is the 'Food and Wine on Pine' Festival.

Not just because I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, love wine, but because it happens during the off season on Anna Maria Island, Florida. It's nice and warm and the accommodation rates are low on the island.

It's easy to get to, by hopping on the Free Island Trolley, and parking at the Crosspoint Fellowship Church on Gulf Drive, Anna Maria.

This is a culinary event where the entire Pine Avenue street is closed to traffic and opened up to people who love to sample food, wine and beer samplings. Not only showcasing food and wine, the festival also has arts and craft booths, and great music playing all along the street. It's a great way to enjoy a day meandering down the Greenest Main Street in America, while enjoying all that the local vendors have to offer. Beautiful and hot weather in a Key West style village, what more can you ask for?
