The annual Augusta Harvest Festival will be September 20th, 21st, and 22nd. Sponsored by the Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce, the festival starts Friday evening with the ever-popular “Swingin’ in the Vines” concert and picnic in the vineyard. This year it will be held at its original location, a private estate now called Honey Bee Vineyards, in Augusta. Board a pumpkin wagon to the Vineyard, claim your gourmet picnic basket, have port in one of the original vaulted wine cellars in Augusta, then enjoy Michael Lacey and his New Orleans Swing band as the sun sets across the vineyard. A picnic basket for two is $100. This event sells out each year and is limited to 100 baskets, so get your tickets early. Transportation to the vineyard starts at 5:30 PM. The event starts at 6:00 PM. Reservations are required. No outside food or beverages permitted.
