City Winery Open at Forest Hills Stadium cancelled
UPDATE: This festival has been canceled.
City Winery is presenting a two-day music, food and wine festival called the City Winery Open, which happens at Queens' Forest Hills Stadium on September 17 & 18. The lineup is pretty impressive, with soul legend Aretha Franklin headlining day two, and Gillian Welch, Dawes, Josh Ritter and Houndmouth rounding out that day's lineup. Day one is headlined by Sheryl Crow (which is less exciting?) (unless you're in Haim?), and the rest of that day is The Wallflowers, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Deer Tick and The Wild Feathers.
As for the food and wine, "more than 75 top wineries from around the globe and 40 of New York’s top chefs and restaurateurs will be represented. Everything will be sold in a cashless system using a currency of “tastes.” Wine options will be available for 1 to 4 "tastes," depending on the selection. A glass of craft beer will be 2 "tastes," and food portions can be purchased for 1 "taste" each. "Tastes" can be purchased in advance online or on-site at Top-Up Stations throughout the festival grounds."
As previously mentioned, Aretha Franklin has other upcoming dates including Radio City.
