Volunteer at the SML Wine FestivalThe Smith Mountain Lake 2010 Wine Festival is an event you don’t want to miss. If you have been to one you know what you will be missing. If not, grab a friend and spend a wonderful day at the lake, eating good food, tasting fine wines and talking to nice folks.

If you have some extra time and want to volunteer to help at the Wine Festival, that will earn you free entrance to the festival and a free t-shirt. Simply sign up to volunteer for September 25th (Saturday afternoon) and September 26th (all day Sunday) and receive your t-shirt and ticket free! If you have questions or would like to sign up email jims@visitsmithmountainlake.com.

 And for those of us who are not able to volunteer, we can get our advance discount tickets now at a cheaper price than waiting to buy them at the gate. Taster tickets are $18 and designated driver tickets are $12, good either day.

Advance discount tickets will be available until September 22nd at 5pm and you can purchase them at the Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center Front Desk, or area ticket outlets.

  1. I am not sure why everyone thinks this wine festival is such a great thing. Half the people I know have problems with alcohol and yet this is touted as a grand community event promoting the stuff. I don’t like to support these kinds of things, and so have never been to one, but I have heard that so many people get tipsy that they even have designated driver tickets to the event!! Can this be good?

    Wine Festivals are great because it brings the communities of businesses together. If 1/2 your friends are alcoholics then I guess they need to stay home..If you have never been to a wine Festival then you should not comment your opinion on them. If people are responsible then they will have designated drivers that doesn’t mean they are all alcoholics.

    Maybe, I will see you there if you decide to enjoy a great time on SML at the festival..

  3. John, sorry to step on toes. I meant no offense against the planners of the festival. I am sure it is a fun affair. Nor did I mean to insinuate that all the participants were alcoholics.

    Wine of course is not the real problem, but rather that people use alcohol to try and fix something much deeper. Half my friends are not alcoholics, but I do think many people have a problem with it, who don’t think they do.

  4. I’m in Richmond Va. and was thinking about coming to the festival, where is a good place to stay, we will need 3 rooms(3 couples)?We’re in our 50’s and 60’s….
    ps. We may get Tipsy!lol
