Fans of Finger Lakes wine will have a new place to celebrate this year. According to our news partners at the Messenger Post, the fifth annual Riesling Festival will most likely move to the Steamboat Landing site on Lakeshore Drive in Canandaigua and will be held on both private and city property.

The traditional festival grounds are in Kershaw Park. It is undergoing environmental clean-up after an investigation into potentially harmful substances in the ground.

The Riesling Fest is scheduled for August 10 and 11 and the final decision to move the festival will be made on August 1.
