Vintage Illinois 2021
September 18-19! Join us in Utica, Illinois for the state's largest wine festival.


The state’s largest Illinois wine festival returns to North Utica this year. The festival began in 2003, and each year our following has gotten bigger and bigger. 

You’ll enjoy some amazing music on stage, while literally wine-ing through the event. Shop with local businesses and Canal Market vendors, enjoy food at local restaurants and event food trucks… there’s so much to do you’ll want to make a weekend out of it. You’ll find hiking trails and state parks all around. North Utica will be beautiful at this time of year and is a very walkable town, with easy parking access just about everywhere you look.

If you just cannot wait that long for your next #IllinoisWine fix, make plans to catch us during the Illinois and DuQuoin State Fairs in August or use our Find-A-Winery map at and create your own road trip. #timeformetodrive #enjoyillinois #enjoyillinoiswine #illinoiswine
