The 32nd Annual — Festival in the Pines is scheduled for August 23rd and 24th, 2014 at Carson Park in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In addition to the return of many arts and crafts vendors, the custom, handcrafted and exclusive wine charms and accessories of Woodsy Wino will be available for the first time at the festival.
“We're looking forward to the festival,” commented Woodsy Wino owner and founder, Jenn Finnell of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. “My family has been many times, and it's a wonderful family and community event to attend. I'm excited to have my company represented this year!”
Offering exclusively created and handcrafted products, Woodsy Wino has quickly gained popularity not only as the manufacturer of highly collectible wine glass charms and accessories, but they also have begun to build a large following for the unique presentation of the online store and website.
“Our wine charms and accessories are certainly out of the ordinary,” added Finnell with a grin. “How could we present the online store as an ordinary website?
Centered around “The Legend of Woodsy Wino”, a story of a mysterious and elusive being who lives near the Kingdom of the Vine in the Chardonnay Woods, among fairies and pixies and a dragon or two, the wine accessories created by the company often have a fantasy story behind them.
“The Dragon Fire Crystal Charms, for instance, which will be available at the Festival in the Pines, were created when one of the dragons sneezed,” said Tim Hiller, illustrator and author of the online serial website and store. “Dragons sneeze fire, you know.”
While not every one of the creations carries such a fantastic tale, the variety of wine accessories and wine charms available at the Festival in the Pines are exclusively Woodsy Wino.
“There are many, many wine glass charm and wine accessory companies out there. The competition is pretty stiff,” Finnell stated. “So we've gone that step further to make our products and creations something you can't find anywhere else but through Woodsy Wino, and now, for the first time, at the Festival in the Pines.”
In addition to Woodsy Wino and the many arts and crafts booths and food vendors throughout Carson Park, the organizers of the Festival in the Pines have added a classic car show to the schedule of activities. Two stages in the park will provide continuous entertainment including live music, family entertainment, a Karate demonstration and a gymnastics performance. Children are invited to enjoy the petting zoo, and, in addition, free with festival admission is entry to the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp and The Chippewa Valley Museum. The many rides and games during the festival are provided by the locally based entertainment company, Rock n'Roll to Go.
Admission is $6 for adults, with discounted tickets for those over 62, and children under 11 are admitted free. The festival begins on Saturday, August 23rd, open from 9 am until 6 pm CST, and on Sunday, August 24th from 9 am, concluding at 4 pm CST.
