The first Tastings at the Lodge will take place during the annual Festival of Trees holiday celebration at The Summit in Danbury. The event will feature live performances by Country Blues act, the Blueseyland Band. Guests will enjoy wine, spirits and beer tastings; a build-your-own mac & cheese station and much more. Admission includes full access to the Festival of Trees, shopping and high-end raffle prizes. Tastings at the Lodge is part of the 21st Annual Ann’s Place Festival of Trees during the weekend of Nov. 17-19, 2023, where The Summit is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with hundreds of beautifully decorated trees, each created by local artisans and representing a story of resilience and triumph over cancer. All proceeds benefit Ann’s Place, serving local families facing cancer with counseling, support groups and wellness programs.
