7 tips to survive & thrive at the Fleurs de Fete wine fest

Fleurs de Fete, Dayton’s largest wine and food festival, can be great fun — even moreso if you follow these few survival-and-enhancement tips from a savvy veteran who went to the first one in 1990 and darn near every one of ‘em since then.This is the 27th year for the festival, which will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 20 at Carillon Historical Park. 

This year’s festival will include more than 400 wines available for sampling at no additional cost beyond admission, along with complimentary dishes from local restaurants, caterers, food trucks and other food vendors. It will also feature a Stella Artois Belgian Beer Garden, live music, and a silent auction showcasing fine wines, baskets, travel packages and other experiences donated by local businesses.

Follow these tips, and you’ll thank me later:

• Arrive early.

• Don’t wait too long to sample the foods.

• Use the dump buckets and don’t be afraid to pour out wines you don’t love. 

>> More than 40 food trucks will serve their finest at HUGE rally and competition this weekend

• When you've poured a sample of wine — and there's a line of folks with empty glasses behind you — get out of the way! 

• Wear sensible shoes. Leave the stilettos for another occasion when you're not tromping around in grass.

• Don’t wear white. White clothing is a magnet for red-wine spills and mustard.

• Drink water — lots of water.

Tickets cost $70 in advance, $75 at the door, and are available until May 19th online at fleursdefete.com or at the following locations: Arrow Wine & Spirits,  Carillon Brewing Co., Carillon Historical Park, Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets in Beavercreek and Centerville, and Ray's Wine Spirits Grill.
