You can raise a glass this year on what will be the 40th annual North East Wine Country Harvest Festival, known simply as Wine Fest. 

The North East Chamber of Commerce will host the three-day event featuring wine from wineries located right in the North East community. 

The festival typically spans across three North East parks; however, organizers say Gibson Park will be the only location for this year's event. 

Along with wine tasting, there will be music and retail vendors. In previous years, people could even take part in grape stomping.

Wine Fest is typically the economic driver for the North East Chamber and a big boost to the North East economy with visitors coming in from out of town.

This year, the festival is set for Friday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Sept. 26. The Chamber is working out the details for a safe and enjoyable event. 

More details will soon be available on the North East Chamber website
