DEADWOOD, S.D. (11/05/19) – In 1876, Deadwood, South Dakota, it wasn’t uncommon for fortune seekers to consume beverages with names like Deadwood Lightning, Red Eye and Coffin Varnish. They also choked down foods like squirrel, rabbit, mutton and rattle snake. Since then, fortune seekers continue to flock to Deadwood looking for good luck, great drinks and incredible food. Come eat, drink and be merry when the 8th annual Forks, Corks & Kegs Festival kicks off in the City of Deadwood April 3 & 4th, 2020.
The event commences on Friday, April 3rd with event registration, Wine Around Deadwood and the annual Appetizer Crawl taking patrons to different locations throughout the historic town for creative small bites. Saturday, April 4th will feature the Deadwood Dine Around where registrants will stop at many Deadwood locations sampling chef created dishes paired with palate matching beverages.
The event culminates on Saturday with the annual Grand Tasting in the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center. Registrants will receive their 2020 commemorative Riedel wine or beer glass and will sample literally hundreds of wines, beer and regional liquors, all in one location.
