Crowd favorites, Triple P, of Winston-Salem will excite with jazz improvisations while you shop for handmade goods and local ingredients from one of the many craft vendors.

Tickets include parking, admission, a glass or three-wine flight of your favorite Raffaldini wines, and a souvenir Festa Italiana wine glass.
