Planning for Largest Winefest on Record
Event benefits local non-profit, Cancer Support of Deming.
(DEMING, NM) — We are pleased to announce our 23rd annual Winefest, benefiting Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County. Festivities will begin on Saturday, September 30th from 12:00-9:00 pm and continue on Sunday, October 1st from 12:00-6:00 pm. Enjoy a large selection of food vendors on-site as well as arts & crafts vendors, upbeat live music and dancing, a silent auction, tours, fun activities for the kids and a wide selection of local New Mexico craft beer and fine wines for sipping and sampling. Admission at the gate is $5 and includes a complimentary wine glass and tasting tickets. Free admission is offered to all active-duty military and law enforcement.
We will donate all proceeds from admission, ribbon donations, vendor fees and silent auction to the local non-profit, Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County, Inc. for the seventh year in a row. Last year’s donation was a substantial $5,433 which helped offset the cost of travel for many local cancer patients who often attend treatments many miles away.
“We’re motivated to make Winefest the biggest entertainment event in Deming,” said Lora Robinson, Tasting Room Manager. “We’re proud we’re able to use the event to support this great, local cause.”
“In order to make this the biggest and best Winefest we’ve ever had, we’ve worked to secure many more additional food vendors, the best local bands, more activities for the kids, and are expanding our beer selection to include more local favorites,” explained Robert Duran, Director of Winery Operations. “The goal is to provide the best event possible for the community, who graciously lend their support every year.”
