Event Details

The Desert WineFest is being postponed to a later date. More details to come...

The first-ever Desert WineFest makes its debut at the Palm Desert Civic Center Park February 25-26, 2023.

The one-of-a-kind event celebrates all things wine, with wines from around the globe - plus craft brews and more - in a relaxed outdoor space where fun, exploration and wine education is balanced with artisan shopping boutiques, live music, great food trucks and restaurants, samplings, games and more. This unique event will also benefit the community and raise funds and awareness for the Family YMCA of the Desert and Desert Cancer Foundation

Desert WineFest is being introduced by the organizers of LAWineFest, with more than 18 years’ experience presenting wine tastings in the Greater Los Angeles and Southern California area, and the team is excited to welcome this new iteration into the fold.
