Long Island Winterfest: Live on the Vine has been the premier music event of the offseason on the North Fork for several years now.

This year, they’ve opened up to more musical genres beyond Jazz and have renamed the series “Live on the Vine.”

Now with more musicians and venues than ever before, Winterfest will run for six weekends beginning tonight through Sunday, March 16. 

While tickets to most concert events cost $20* and include a glass of wine, visitors can also purchase multi-show Hopper passes this year.
