Your Friday mission, should you choose to accept it, is to fill your weekend with good music and great wine.
Yeah, this’ll be a tough one, but you can do it if you really try.
And Dauphin County’s making your job just a little bit easier. Tonight, the 2015 Jazz and Wine Festival will be kicking off its three-day run in Fort Hunter Park. This evening, the festivities will run from 6-10 p.m., and there will be crafts, wines and music galore. All sorts of wineries from Moon Dancer Vineyards & Winery to Adam’s Vintners will be selling their wares. The must-catch performance this evening is the Spanish Harlem Orchestra. This ensemble is a four-time Grammy nominee and a two-time Grammy winner. They’ve toured around the world keeping the grand tradition of salsa dura, or “hard salsa,” alive. Check out their sound, and see if you can stop yourself from dancing in your seat.
For a full list of wineries and musical artists participating, as well as the schedule for the rest of the weekend, check the official page. Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 at the door. Doors open an hour before the fun starts every day, so you’ve got plenty of time to set up your lawn chairs before you commence that mission. Enjoy.
