Do you love wine? Do you love to laugh? If you answered yes to these questions, the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese has added a new spectacle to the event just for you! Tasters will laugh until they cry, as Geva Comedy Improv takes over the Tiki Hut on Saturday July 17 starting at 6pm. The Finger Lakes Wine Festival will run from July 16-18 and has included the Geva Comedy Improv to add excitement to the Saturday nightlife. Your spot for improv comedy is one of the many attractions included in the cost of admission.
Geva Comedy Improv is a resident acting troupe formed in 2002 at Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, NY. Their mission is to deliver hilarious spontaneous comedy at a great price. Geva just concluded their “Mountains and Monsters” show on June 26th and will make a stop at Watkins Glen International for the improv comedy show during the Finger Lakes Wine Festival, on July 17.
Once a year, Watkins Glen International transforms from The Soul of American Road Racing into the Finger Lake’s largest tasting room, where over 600 New York wines will be sampled. The celebration kicks-off Friday evening at 6:00 pm, July 17th, with fireworks, wine, and togas at “Yancey’s Fancy Cheese Launch of the Lakes.” Saturday and Sunday the Festival will open at 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, featuring a variety of wine and food and arts and crafts from across the state, culinary classes, cooking demonstrations, wine seminars, the Brewers’ Garden, pace car rides, comedy and live musical entertainment and much more.
Also new in 2010, the festival is expanding their grounds to offer a new wine tasting area adjacent to the previous tasting grounds.
