FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7th Annual Putnam County Wine & Food Fest Announces their new App

Patterson, NY –June 14, 2017 – The Putnam County Wine & Food Fest (PCWFF) is proud to announce the launch of their festival App. The convenient and practical app allows participants, for example, wineries, distillers, and ciders to easily update their own information, including what wines, spirits, and ciders they’re serving. When they make a change, it instantly updates the app.  The administrator for the festival can also add and edit all the details, either with their phone or tablet, which instantly updates the app. Created by WineReach, the App is now available for free download in the Apple App store and Google Play store.

“This app allows us to reach a much wider and diverse audience. At a time when people enjoy apps and the simplicity of them, we are happy to now be part of that growing market,” said President/Founder, Lauren Drummond. “This is an exciting milestone for the Putnam County Wine & Food Fest and will enable the company to become more competitive than ever. This App will make the process of obtaining essential information needed to market all participants, updates on schedules, etc.”

This two-day festival will be held on Saturday, August 12th, 11am to 6pm and Sunday, August 13th, 11am to 5pm, 2017, at the Irons & Wine Restaurant and Westview Golf Driving Range (3191 Route 22, Patterson, NY). The Fest will highlight New York’s and beyond most renowned wine, hard cider, spirit producers, food, arts, and crafts, culinary demonstrations, local and international artists.

“The PCWFF is my favorite type of festival, one that introduces me to local artisans and craftsmen that put everything they have into their product — not into an advertising budget. It’s festivals like the Putnam County Wine & Food Fest that have introduced me to some of my favorite wines, and it’s the reason I created the WineReach App, to help local festivals reach as many people as possible,” said Billy Baughman, Founder.

Putnam County Wine & Food Fest’s current sponsors and partners include: Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, HamletHub, Durant’s Tent Rentals, Premiere Transportation and Verizon.

While the event is a private, for profit event, Putnam County Wine & Food Fest partners with local charities and this year’s charity is Green Chimneys which affords them the opportunity to use a code to receive 60% of all sales tracked to code!

The Putnam County Wine & Food Fest is still accepting sponsorship, vendor, and volunteer applications.
