It’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit! Whether you’re putting up holiday decorations  early or attending a holiday event, it’s a fun season.


This year has been rough for everyone so we all deserve a little joy in our lives. Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey, is kicking off the celebration with a Holiday Wine Festival.


Saturday, Nov. 14–15, head to Six Flags Great Adventure for some holiday cheer. Sample wine from eight local wineries, get a head start on holiday shopping and enjoy a tasty treat from the Holiday Feast or one of the many food trucks on site.


The Holiday Wine Fest begins at 12:30 p.m., inside the Merry Marketplace near Justice League: Battle of Metropolis. Enjoy tastings from Dimatteo Vineyards, Plagido’s Winery, Salem Oak Vineyards, Tomasello Winery, Valenzano Winery, Villa Milagro Vineyards, Villari Vineyards and Wagonhouse Winery. All wineries will have bottles for sale with complimentary wine pickup or you can take them back to your car before re-entering the theme park.


Theme park admission or a season pass is required for all guests to attend the festival. For non-season pass holders, you can purchase the Festival Package for $45, which includes theme park admission and samples from all participating wineries. Season pass holders can purchase a ticket for the festival at $25.


All festival guests are required to show a valid ID and must be 21 or older. While purchasing your ticket, you must pick the date and time slot for your tasting.
