This year brings in lots of fun changes.
We’ve got a VIP Wine and Home Movie Stroll that takes place on Saturday and Sunday of the event where guests will have an opportunity to take in a showcase of independent films in a quaint/likely haunted Jerome home while enjoying sipping complimentary wine provided by a local winery and sweets provided by a local chocolatier.
Saturday morning of the festival ushers in the Festival’s first ever Film Fair with industry booths (which include production companies, acting studios, camera companies, film studios, craft beer, food, wine, artists and live music performed by local bands.
On Saturday night, the Wicked Wild West Cinema Train pulls out at 5pm for a Starlit Excursion through the verde canyon. Guests who grab a ticket for this event will enjoy live music performed by local bands on outdoor cars and will be spooked to death watching independent horror films on the inside car. The train is by far the festival’s signature event so make sure you grab tickets for this one early.
On Sunday morning, our adventureous guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the festival’s 1st Annual Water into Wine Kayak Adventure, where guests will travel down the river in their kayaks to a surprise destination to enjoy lunch and wine while kickin’ it on the banks of the Verde River.
This year the theme is sphaghetti western and as such we will be having a Hang ‘Em High Gala on Saturday night.
The festival is mere months out from celebrating its 5th year anniversary. As everyone knows, music is a huge facet of the festival and we are calling on all Arizona bands to submit for consideration to perform at a variety of venues during the weekend which include the Moonlit Mystery Cinematrain, the Verde River Bank Venue (which is literally a new venue where a band will perform after our Kayaking guests park for food, wine and music on Sunday, our Film Fair venue where bands will be performing from 11am-4pm to the biggest crowd of the festival and we are also looking for bands to perform at our local parties and events. If you are interested, please email toni at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are putting everything we have into this big event and want to showcase as many local bands as possible.
