Harvest East End; The North Fork TV Festival; Solar Saturday; Color Greenport

The Highlights

Friday August 19 – Sunday August 21

This Saturday, enjoy two terrific annual North Fork events: Harvest East End, a showcase of our food and wine set on the beautiful McCall Vineyard and Ranch in Cutchogue, and the new North Fork TV Festival in Greenport’s Theater.

GoNorthFork chatted with Eric Feil, Organizer of Harvest East End and CEO and Editorial Director at Dan’s Papers about Harvest East End 2016

Q: Why is Harvest East End 2016 a ‘Don’t Miss’? 

A: If you love wine, Long Island in particular, there is no bigger gathering in one place. On a good day maybe someone goes to four wineries; here there are thirty under one tent. Similarly we bring 26 restaurants featuring local cuisine with local ingredients. You just can’t get that anywhere.

McCall Vineyard and Ranch is a beautiful setting, in the heart of the North Fork, reflecting everything people love about visiting the North Fork. Walk in and join the wine wonderland. Over 100 wines available for tasting.

Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian [star of the Food Network] hosts, and will be circulating in the main tent. We always have a great DJ, and while wine is the focus of the celebration, we offer other beverages to enjoy as well—beers, spirits, and non alcoholic drinks. Groundlink is our official transportation sponsor. Call ahead and they can bring you too and from the event in comfort. 21 and older only—no infants even—and leave the pets at home; only service animals allowed.

Though tickets have been selling quickly, we do have a handful left. Check DansTasteOfSummer.com for ticket availability.

So that’s Harvest East End. But it’s not the only supercool Saturday shindig. From 1:30-8 pm the North Fork Television Festival takes over Greenport’s Theater, for a one-of-a-kind substantive (and fascinating) take on this important medium. Details

Still another Saturday special is the release party for an adult coloring book focused on Greenport. Hosted by the terrific restaurant/hotel American Beech, the book and related art auction benefit community institution CAST. Details.

If you’d rather be outside, or are an astronomy fan, head to the Custer Observatory in Southold for Solar Saturday. Safely observe the sun and enjoy numerous interesting activities, followed by a BBQ.

But those three terrific events are far from the only fun in town; check out the listings below for art openings and receptions, concerts in parks, restaurants and wineries, tours and tastings; so much more.
