Tickets will be on sale for Suwanee’s annual wine festival Aug. 25 at noon.

Early-bird and VIP tickets will be available, with the early-bird cost at $49 and VIP at $99. Early-bird tickets are general admission and allow the ticket-holder to have unlimited samples of wine, craft beer and food. There will also be vendors, live entertainment and food for purchase.

VIP tickets allow early access to the festival and a private tasting and dining tent. The VIP tent will have “higher-end” wine samples, wine education opportunities and a catered meal. The VIP ticket also comes with a T-shirt and goodie bag.

The festival, in its fifth year, is scheduled for Nov. 4 at the Suwanee Town Center, with general admission from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and VIP admission from noon to 4:30 p.m. The festival benefits Annandale Village, a Suwanee community for developmentally disabled adults.
