Magdalena Bash Harvest Festival at Kief-Joshua Vineyards near Tucson, AZ
This is an annual event that is held each year. It is a celebration of the grape harvest, but also introduces new wines. It is held one day only, but oh, what a day. There is music playing all day from two different music groups. There are also food available from several food trucks. For the sweet tooth, there will be a caramel and chocolates vendor. For those with a bit of a nutty flair, pistachio farmers.
This is a great festival, as there is something for everyone. If you like all natural products, there are goat milk soaps of all different scents. Also in attendance, are photography artists. Speaking of artists, get a beautiful henna tattoo while you are there, from one of several different artists.
