Spirits reign at the 17th annual Capital Food and Wine Festival

Feb. 16, 2006

Lacey, Wash. – Savor some of the finest Northwest wines and dishes at the 17th annual Capital Food and Wine Festival. The event, from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 25, will be at Saint Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E.

Sponsored by the Saint Martin’s Alumni Association, the event raises money for association scholarships to students attending or entering Saint Martin's University.

The taste-full festival is larger and better than ever. This year, festival-goers can sip the creations of more than 35 regional vintners, sample the suds of several Northwest microbreweries and taste specialties of some 20 restaurants and food vendors, including several new to the festival. Live entertainment will be featured throughout the day on the festival’s two stages.

In the festival’s time-honored tradition, festival collectors can add to their stash of collectible memorabilia from an array of souvenir wine and beer glasses, shirts, art and other mementos.

Entry tickets are $12 at the door or can be purchased for $10 in advance at the Saint Martin’s Pavilion office, Twin County Credit Unions, Ralph’s Thriftway and Bayview Market.
