CORNVILLE - For the eighth consecutive year, Page Springs Cellars will hold its annual Harvest Festival.

Harvest Festival, a celebration of harvest and of the hard work for the entire year, is scheduled for Oct. 5 from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Page Springs Cellars, located at 1500 N. Page Springs Road in Cornville.

According to Susana Meister, Wine Club and Marketing Director for Page Springs Cellars, Harvest Festival is "a chance for all of us to literally enjoy the fruit of our labor, our entire staff, our community and all the volunteers who have helped in so many ways throughout the growing year."

In some ways, harvest means the end of the growing year, Meister said. "And yet the fruit we've harvested is still very much alive and changing. So in a sense, this event is a celebration of that process of change. But mostly, it's a chance for us all to unwind and celebrate another successful year."

The concept of Harvest Festival was conceived by Eric Glomski, owner of Page Springs Cellars, and has developed over the years based on community interest and feedback.

Each year, close to 400 people, including many in-state Wine Club Members, attend Harvest Festival.

According to Meister, many of this year's musical entertainers are local. D-Bess, Pick & Holler, Decker, 13 to the Gallows and the Makepeace Brothers will entertain wine lovers. The Makepeace Brothers are not a local band, "but their roots-rock vibe really fits the feel of the event," Meister said.

Carolyn Camp, fiddle player for Pick & Holler, said she is happy to playing at this year's Harvest Festival.

"I have not attended the Festival, but we have performed at the winery a few times on the deck outside the tasting room," Camp said. "We always enjoy playing there. We were honored to be asked to play the Festival this year."

Camp also said that the style of music that Pick & Holler plays would make for a good pairing with the Harvest Festival.

"It's good, energetic, family-friendly music, the kind that makes grown-ups tap their feet and makes children and those young at heart want to dance," Camp said."

A $40 ticket will gain patrons entrance to the festival. Wine Club members receive a discount. Wine and food are sold separately, with Whiskey Ranch BBQ cooking tantalizing meats for attendees.

Besides wine, food and song, Harvest Festival activities include a dunk tank, the hay bale maze, caricaturists, face painting and a balloon-twisting clown. Page Springs Cellars will donate proceeds from the dunk tank to the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Arizona.

Connie Dedrick, Chief Professional Officer for the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Arizona, Cottonwood branch, says she is excited and appreciative of Page Springs Cellars pledging to donate proceeds to the non-profit organization.

"It's really nice to see smaller businesses helping the community," Dedrick said. "It's really wonderful. It's been difficult for us non-profits. If it wasn't for the businesses and the community as a whole, we wouldn't be here."

According to Meister, Page Springs Cellars tries to offer a variety of elements with the hopes of providing people with an amazing event.

"Mostly, we hope that our guests have a chance to take a moment out of their busy lives and enjoy a connection to the place and people around them," Meister said. "For us, everything we do goes back to that simple connection: people and place. We hope to offer our guests a peaceful and enjoyable evening under the stars, surrounded by great music, delicious food and wine and happy friends and family."

"Being a family company, we have always focused on making this a family friendly event."

According to Meister, location also makes Harvest Festival special.

"There aren't a ton of large-scale events like this at a local working winery," Meister said. "Most people will agree that there is a really special element to this property. As the sun sets, with the music and the vineyards surrounding you - it's just a very beautiful place to celebrate, and even more so when you can toast to another wonderful harvest season with our crew."

"Of course amazing vino doesn't hurt!"
