We are excited to share that the Crush Wine & Food Festival is returning this September with more exclusive events and add-ons than ever before. Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate has been a proud partner of Crush for several years now, and we are always excited to see the new additions that each year brings. This will be the festival’s 7th annual celebration, and one of Crunkleton’s major projects will be involved.

The Crush Wine & Food Festival will take place September 23rd-26th with the main festival on Saturday the 25th. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE.

At this morning’s press conference, it was announced that the 106 Jefferson Curio by Hilton hotel will offer weekend stays with a special Crush pricing that covers a Friday and Saturday night getaway! This means guests will be able to experience a luxury stay in downtown Huntsville with easy access to all of the wine and food festival’s events. It’s a partnership that will bring another level of extravagance and comfort to guests of the festival. There are only 100 tickets available for the weekend stays, and they will go fast!

In addition to the main event at Big Spring Park on Saturday, Crush is offering several exclusive events and add-ons that can be included in your ticket package:

  • Whiskey & Wild Game Garden hosted by SiP Lounge
  • Wine Guru Tours (go behind the tents and skip all the lines—only 90 spots available, six per group)
  • VIP Tickets with access to an area hosted by Church Street Wine Shoppe
  • Chocolate truffle and wine pairing events
  • Charcuterie 101 hosted by Cured
  • Weekend packages that include a Crush pass with one of the partner events:
    • Regional wine tasting at the new Church Street Wine Shoppe on Gates
    • A 5-course dinner and wine/spirit pairing at Revivalist (restaurant at 106 Jefferson)
    • Rooftop brunch at BarVista

Each year, the Crush Wine & Food Festival transforms Huntsville’s Big Spring Park into a delicious getaway for wine connoisseurs, fine-dining enthusiasts, and fun-loving foodies. The festival was even named one of the Top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society. To qualify, an event must be at least 3 years old and have an attendance of 1,000 people or more—a number that is easily met and surpassed by the festival.

Ashley Ryals is the owner and chief creator of Homegrown Huntsville, the entity responsible for the wine festival’s creation. Ashley says she wants the Crush Wine & Food Festival to be an event that Huntsville can be proud of. The celebration is becoming more regionally and nationally recognized with each passing year, and Crunkleton is thrilled to be a part of its legacy.
