The inaugural First City Beer & Wine Festival brings together the wineries of Monterey Wine Country with breweries from the Central Coast to raise funds for Monterey County Gives!
In addition to curated beers and wines, the event features live music, lawn games, mini-workshops as well as the most popular food trucks in the Monterey and San Fransico Bay areas.
Raise the fun level and do good at the same time! Net proceeds from this event go to the Monterey County Gives, a partnership of Monterey County Weekly and The Community Foundation for Monterey County. Raising almost $4.9 million in 2017, the program provided needed support to over 150 local non-profits.
