2018 Calendar of Events
By Catharine Hadley, Arts and Entertainment Editor, email@example.com
The theme of this column is "trying new things." I'm happy to be starting this new project of writing the entertainment column for Leisure Living Magazine! I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone. Although I've done my best to make sure all the information is accurate, please go online or call ahead to confirm your plans.
Any suggestions and details of your upcoming events can be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Every attempt is made to provide accurate information, however,
Vintage Ohio Festival
If you love wine, you won't mind taking a trip to Kirtland for the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival and a Little Brew, Too event.
The festival, which is scheduled for Aug. 3 and 4, has been called the premier food and wine event of the year for northern Ohio. Several Ohio wineries will offer Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and other varieties, plus wines made from summer fruits. Wouldn't you like to try a wine made from strawberries, peaches, raspberries, or blackberries?
Beer lovers won't feel left out – there will be a beer tent. Bring your appetite for the food vendors, and prepare to enjoy the live music and fireworks on Friday evening.
Village Arts & Wine Fest
If you love wine and entertainment but would like to stay closer to home, go to the Sculpture in the Village Arts and Wine Festival on Aug. 11 at Williams Park in Gibsonburg.
Sample wines from Gillig Winery, DD Smith Winery, Chateau Tebeau Winery and Ski Lodge Winery. Spend the afternoon and evening enjoying food, art vendors, and live entertainment.
This event benefits the North Coast Veterans Museum in Gibsonburg.
