Page Springs Cellars is hosting what is sure to be the state’s most vibrant and entertaining wine and music festival this year. Taking the place of the winery’s extremely popular annual fall Harvest Festival and in celebration of Page Springs’ 10th Anniversary, the Tilted Earth Wine and Music Festival will be held on June 21 during the summer solstice at the beautiful Riverfront Park in Cottonwood.
The park truly sets the stage for an enjoyable event, with expansive open space and lush, green trees, perfect for a Saturday afternoon with loved ones or a quick escape from the Phoenix heat. Wine aficionados can enjoy specialty selections from 16 Northern Arizona wineries, delicious cuisine from six gourmet food trucks, massages by Page Springs Massage and Yoga, a raffle benefitting the Verde Valley Teen Center, complimentary kid friendly fun including face painting and sumo suit wrestling, and a live music line-up from seven artists and bands, including acclaimed Canadian headliner Bruce Cockburn. Inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2001, Cockburn has released 31 albums and his career spans more than five decades.
“The Arizona wine industry is worthy of celebration all year long, but Tilted Earth is a special way to commemorate our craft, bring the community together for a little fun in the sun, and give back to a good cause while doing it,” said Eric Glomski, Page Springs Cellars’ founder and winemaker. “We’re incredibly grateful to be celebrating 10 fruitful years in this rapidly growing industry and we’re proud to call this roster of wineries our colleagues and friends.”
