Gloucester Wine Festival

Remember that there is only handicap parking at the event site. All other parking is at Ware Academy. We will have a continuous run of FIVE Newton Charter Buses (very comfortable) buses, and you may bring your lawn chairs on the ride over. There will be restroom facilities available. You will show your tickets and I.D. and receive your admission wristbands at Ware, so all you have to do is enter at Brent and Becky’s when the bus drops you off! You may also purchase tickets before you get on the bus. The buses begin their runs at 10:40 AM.
