Food & Wine Festival

June 17 -19, 2021


Walk-around wine tastings at sunset?  Mixology classes where everyone passes? Farm-fresh foodie sampling?  Cooking demos with Chef Ryne and his culinary crew?  Yes, yes, and yes -- because Destination GN has three decadent days planned just like this. Chin-chin!

Fall Festival

October 15 - 16, 2021


There's something magical about autumn, the crisp leaves, pick-your-own apples, cider donuts and fall produce galore. Along with cooler temps and ever changing foliage, the month of October ushers in an influx of fun fall activities. We have rounded up some of the best fall happenings across our properties and the surrounding area that kids and the whole family will love.

Pumpkin Festival

October 22 - 24, 2021


Get your fall pumpkin fix and join Destination GN and The Ridge Hotel for seasonal cider drinks at check-in; a festive Friday Oktoberfest bier tasting followed by Big Al Wetzel live in concert, a weekend-long biergarten, and a Saturday pumpkin celebration complete with carving contest, live music, and circling ‘round the fire rings while noshing on pumpkin donuts and kettle corn.  Just five minutes down the road, Pearce Farms hosts a 12-acre corn maze, pumpkin picking, a hale bale climbing tower, and a delightfully overwhelming selection of decorative gourds. 

Full schedule of events to come.

Spooktacular Weekend

October 29-31, 2021


Enjoy a spirited Halloween weekend at Destination GN and The Ridge Hotel starting with seasonal drinks at check-in, a weekend-long biergarten, Friday live country music  and then wake up Sunday and eat to the beat at The Ridge Bump ‘n Brunch. Fill in the gaps with a technicolor trek on the Shore Path or Kishwauketoe trails, a hot air balloon ride over a gem-toned landscape, or a wine-tasting shop & walk about town.

Full schedule of events to come.

Hunt Club Wine Dinners



With 14 consecutive years of Wine Spectator awards, the Hunt Club Steakhouse has a proven grape-crushing record, which is partly why our monthly wine-pairing dinners are so fabulously popular. (Well that … and Chef Ryne’s decadent five-course meals.)   


The events listed above are all open to all hotel guests.
