June 22nd marked the first of our Parker Picnic Series. The Parker Picnic Series is a string of events that includes live music and local food trucks and takes place in our picnic area, one Saturday, every month from June through October.
To kick off the series this summer we had local rock band Joe Daddy & the Sumthins. Guests of the Fess Parker winery were treated to Joe Daddy’s Rockin’ covers with a focus on but not limited to 90’s hits. They even played some of their own original music.
While being entertained by Joe Daddy & the Sumthins, guests enjoyed Fess Parker wine as well as some delicious Southern BBQ prepared by Georgia’s Smokehouse. Pulled pork, smoked brisket, grilled cheese, smoked burgers, mac & cheese, sweet potato fries, as well as bacon and cheddar hush puppies were all enjoyed throughout the day.
If you came with a sweet tooth we didn’t forget about you. Sugar and Salt Creamery came prepared with 4 different flavors of artisan sorbet made with local ingredients.
It was a great day to be outside, drink some great wine, and enjoy some music and food.
