Aficionados and novices alike can enjoy a day full of wine and beer fit for Dionysus at the Great Lakes Wine Fest at the Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, May 19. Camping goes upscale with fancy food, wine and craft beers provided by over 40 regional wineries and brewing companies. Vineyard owners from Traverse City to Kalamazoo will convene for the festival to give revelers a wine-pairing menu fit for any highbrow foodie. Pairing sessions are an additional $10 a piece and often sell out, so plan to buy ahead of time. The event is hosted by the Jackson County Convention and Visitor’s Club and will have non-electric and electric sites on the Graves Farms Campground available to reserve for $35 and $50, respectively. 12-9pm. $25. Michigan International Speedway, 12626 US Highway 12, Brooklyn, MI. 1-800-354-1010. www.mispeedway.com
