Series 16W Wine Fair/Festival Liquor License


A Fair/Festival Liquor License is processed in a similar manner as other liquor license applications, except that there are no posting or protest period requirements, and no school location restrictions.  A Fair/Festival license allows a licensed farm winery to serve products produced at the farm winery at a festival, sanctioned county or state fair, or within the premises of a licensed special event.  Liquor produced under the provision of the farm winery license may be served for consumption on the fair/festival premises or “to-go” in the original, sealed container.

The application requires approval of the governing body of a city or town, where the fair/festival will take place. Up to fifty wine festival licenses for each calendar year for each licensed farm winery, for up to a total of one hundred fifty calendar days per winery may be issued.


The application has been reviewed and determined to be in compliance with City requirements.


Financial Impact

The application and license fees have been paid.
