If you’re like me, a girl’s weekend is the perfect thing to do to recharge and relax. Usually, my friends and I go to the beach, but we may have to road trip to Raleigh for this festival! Next month, the Annual N.C. Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate Festival is taking place and it sounds perfect.
According to Only In Your State, the yearly celebration will occur on Saturday, April 29 from 1-6 p.m. It’s at Lafayette Village in North Raleigh, which is only 2 1/2 hours from Charlotte. I’ve never heard of this area, so I had to Google it. It’s adorable! It’s a European-style village and it’s so cute. It offers upscale shopping and restaurants, and often has art events and live music. Looking at the pictures online, it reminds me of my time in Italy.
At the festival, you’ll be able to sample wines from numerous regions, taste all kinds of chocolate creations, and enjoy an array of delicious cheeses. Nothing about that sounds bad at all! And if you enjoy shopping, you’ll have the opportunity to check out the cute boutiques at Lafayette Village.
The festival sells out quickly, so if you’re interested, make plans now. Advanced tickets are $39.99 or $50 at the door. You can purchase tickets and find out more information here. Sounds like a great time! Raleigh has lots to see and do and sometimes taking a road trip is good for the soul!
