During last week’s Purcellville Town Council work session, Special Events Coordinator Melanie Scoggins reported on the final preparations are Saturday’s Wine and Food Festival.
The sponsorship program is going well, including Harris Teeter and the Dulles Greenway, and Scoggins said she hopes to sign up four premier sponsors. The VIP table program that offers eight reserved seats, four bottles of wine, 16 tasting tickets and other perks also is proving popular, with 50 percent already sold, Scoggins said.
As of June 23, 11 wineries had signed on along with 12 food providers and four artisan vendors. Lead musicians include Andy Hawk and the Train Wreck Endings, The Greenbeets, and the Colin Thompson band. Tickets sales also are tracking well, she said, noting 3,300 tickets had sold so far.
