  • About

    The Crush Wine & Food Festival returns to Big Spring Park for its 8th year September 19st-24th, 2022 and this year's event is not one to be missed.

    Take Flight

    Event-goers will "Take Flight" as they peruse the park sampling everything from rich, bold reds to fun, light whites and everything in between. Not a wine drinker? Not a problem. The Whiskey and Wild Game Garden is returning for the 2022 year and will feature whiskeys and bourbons from around the world that are sure to impress even the most discerning palate.


    The beverages are only part of this annual event. Our food vendors are the industry's best of the best! You'll find charcuterie classes, chocolatiers, gourmet sandwiches and more. With a full line-up of vendors and events, plus our private wine guru tours, the crush wine and food festival truly has something for everyone! Tickets go on sale June 7th.

  • FAQ's

    Can I bring my baby/children to an event?

    Although cute, given the nature of the Crush Wine & Food Festival, we are required by the state of Alabama to check IDs for all attendees to verify that they are of legal drinking age to gain access to our event.


    Can I bring my pet?

    Also cute but sorry, no dogs (excluding service dogs)


    I’m interested in volunteering with the Crush Wine & Food Festival. How do I sign up?

    For more information regarding volunteer opportunities, email Ashley @ ashley@homegrownhuntsville.com! We’re always looking for great volunteers!



    We will have designated smoking areas that are not near the wine tasting tents. Please be conscious of this so that you do not disturb the guests tasting wine.

    Is there a “non-drinking” ticket price?

    No, we do not offer a separate “non-drinking” ticket price.


    Is it rain or shine?

    Yes, tickets are non-refundable. However, they are transferable so if last minute you’re unable to attend, feel free to sell or give your ticket to a friend.


    What about food?

    Food is not included in admission tickets. Many of the gourmet specialty food vendors do offer small free samples of their products so you can taste before you buy. For meals, we have a fine selection of food trucks. No outside food or drinks will be permitted. Free bottles water is available at the water tent.


    No weapons/firearms

    No outside food/drinks

  • Latest Updates

  • Covid Guidelines

    The health & wellbeing of our guests and employees is our top priority. All CWFF events will be following and practicing CDC & City of Huntsville COVID-19 mandates to ensure the safety of our staff & guests.

    Each event has a limited capacity following City Guidelines that allows attendees to social distance. Masks are highly recommended for all guests, vendors, staff, and volunteers. Hand sanitizer stations will be provided at entrances, inside portable restrooms, and other locations to encourage frequent use.

    All employees, volunteers and vendors will complete a health check before starting their shift and will go home immediately if they experience any symptoms.

    We ask that any guests who feel unwell or have recently been in close contact with a person with COVID-19 to stay home.


    We are all in this together. Like cities and communities across state, country, and the world, the COVID-19 virus has forced us to readjust our routines to a new normal. But Huntsville is resilient. We’ll get through this. We’re not as powerless as we might think. As individuals and as a community, we can make smart choices that will alter the course of this virus, keep our most vulnerable safe, and give our health care partners time to combat the illness. Personal responsibility is everyone’s responsibility. Please get the vaccine and help us protect each other. When in public, remember to separate, sanitize often, and wear a face cover when you can’t be assured everyone around you is vaccinated. – Mayor Tommy Battle
