This event is FREE and held at Artisan Restaurant at Delamar Resort, on the shores of West Bay in downtown Traverse City.
There’s nothing quite like the bounty of harvest season in Northern Michigan, it’s truly something to celebrate. Inspired by the way many French communities rally around the wine harvest with the tradition of Vendange, we’re honoring our local farmers and winemakers with a harvest party - Vendange Fête.
Traditionally, a day as a vendanger starts with a shared meal and concludes with a joyful celebration after a long day of harvesting grapes. Artisan’s Vendange Fête is influenced by this merriment and will capture the flavors and energy of the traditional vendange, autumn, and fresh, local produce. Guests will indulge in a selection of delectable complimentary hors d'oeuvres to sample and enjoy a curated menu of sharables for purchase crafted just for the occasion by our culinary team.
Crooked Tree Arts Center is collaborating with Delamar for this fun event. Guests will receive two complimentary tasting tickets to explore tastings from local winemakers. At the bar, guests may choose from a selection of refreshments for purchase. Enjoy crisp bubbly, harvest-inspired cocktails, perfectly poured brews, and digestifs all while soaking in views of the Grand Traverse Bay and the camaraderie of the evening.
CTAC feature plein air artists, Lori Feldpausch, Margie Guyot, Ruth Kitchen and Barbara Reich. Plein air paintings will be available for purchase during the event, with sale proceeds benefiting the artists and CTAC.
