Capital Wine Festival – Albany

April 27, 2024 at the Albany Capital Center. 55 Eagle Street. Albany, NY 12297

Capital Wine Festival – Albany

There are two sessions plus a VIP option. Session 1 ($30) is from 1pm-4pm and session 2 ($35) is from 6pm-9pm. The VIP ticket ($40) gets you into session 2 an hour earlier, at 5pm, so you have more time and shorter lines during the first hour.


Tickets for Designated Drivers (DDs) will be sold for $10 at the door. This ticket allows the DD to participate in food sampling, paint n sip, games, DJ/photo booth, and dinner purchases. There is no limit to the number of DD tickets available.

2024 Will Be Another Great Time!

Included with your ticket is unlimited sampling of the wines, spirits, and specialty food offered by the participating vendors. There will be full meals and beverages for sale (not included with the ticket price) offered by the chef at the Albany Capital Center. There will be a DJ, free photo booth, a free self-guided Paint-N-Sip attraction, and several other regular vendors selling their items.

Wine Sampling

We work hard to attract as many NY wineries to our shows as we can. Check the above Exhibitor Listing to see who we can thank for their participation at this show.

Spirits Sampling

We are also grateful for the participation of distilleries of excellence in NY. It is a great privilege to learn about their farms and stories and to purchase their spirits.

Specialty Foods Sampling

We aim to bring you the best quality specialty food producers who are willing to sample their products throughout each session. You will definitely want to purchase your favorites to take home.

Paint ‘N Sip

Once again enjoy the self-guided Paint-N-Sip offering. This is included with your ticket. Find a seat and our facilitator will keep you stocked with all the materials you need to indulge your creativity. 

Wine and Spirits Holding Area

When you purchase your favorite bottles of wine or spirits after sampling them, we will keep them for you in the holding area. You just need to save your tickets from your purchase and pick them up on your way out.

DJ and Photo Booth

Get ready to turn up the volume and strike a pose with Capital Region Entertainment! Our DJs are the ultimate party starters, spinning the hottest tracks that will keep you grooving all night long.

Have fun playing board games scattered around on tables for those of you who enjoy a more laid back evening while sampling. Chess, Checkers, and Connect 4 are some that people enjoy. If you have suggestions, please let us know!
