The wine festival returns ‘bigger and better’ to Upper Macungie Township’s Grange Park   

BETHLEHEM, Pa., March 21, 2023—  ArtsQuest, in partnership with Upper Macungie Township and Sports and Social Allentown, announces the 6th Annual SangriaFest. This year’s event, which sold out in 2022, promises to be ‘bigger and better’ with a larger footprint than years past, offering more wineries and food vendors, expanded lawn games – including a Cornhole tournament – and, of course, more Sangria! This festive celebration will take place on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023 at Grange Park and tickets are on sale NOW at

The event runs from 4 p.m. (3 p.m. for premium access hour) to 7 p.m. Premium access hour includes four exclusive sangria samples, catered menu, exclusive access to a private bar, air-conditioned restrooms and access to VIP parking.

There will be 12 different varieties of sangria offered at this year’s event from four different wineries, including Clover Hill, Vynecrest, Stony Run and Franklin Hill. All will use their own signature red, white and blush wines to create unique twists on the popular summertime libation.

“We are excited to welcome SangriaFest back to Grange Park,” said Sunny Ghai, Chairman of UMT Board of Supervisors. “As part of our collaboration with ArtsQuest, we look forward to welcoming the community to this year’s expanded festival. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, here in Upper Macungie Township.”

Attendees can enjoy bottomless samples of sangria, along with a variety of Yuengling beer and cocktails available for purchase in addition to more food options with added vendors onsite. And, with an expanded footprint, there will be even more room for lawn games, including a Cornhole tournament, as well as live music.

“ArtsQuest is thrilled to not only have this opportunity to once again partner with our friends in Upper Macungie Township, but also to reintroduce this year’s Sangriafest as bigger and better than ever,’ said Curt Mosel, ArtsQuest’s Chief Operating Officer. “We listened to feedback received from last year’s sold-out event and took action. This year, our expanded footprint allows for more festival space, additional food and entertainment and an added winery means more sangria to enjoy.”
