One of the most popular events at Smith Mountain Lake, the SML Wine Festival, will be held at Crazy Horse Marina on Saturday, September 23rd, and Sunday, September 24th.|

In the past, the wine festival was the signature event for the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce. However, the chamber made the decision to hand over the operations of the event to the non-profit organization Hook, Lines, and Singers after the Covid-19 pandemic. All proceeds from the event will be donated to charities.

Details are still emerging regarding participating wineries, artisans, food vendors, and entertainment. Ticket prices range from $20 for  Non-Drinker/Designated Driver up to $150 for VIP passes.

Tickets can be purchased on the event website ( Organizers also encourage those interested to follow the event on Facebook and Instagram, the primary forum where announcements will be made.
