Our event is about hanging out and relaxing with your hounds amongst the beautiful lakes and gorges of central New York. Greyhounds are welcome at all our participating wineries and hotels. This photo is taken on the patio at Villa Bellangelo Winery on Route 14. Photo by Balance Photography.
Grapehounds was designed to be an event where you can be as busy or as relaxed as you would like to be. We don't have speakers, because we're in fun mode at this event. No event has more opportunity for just pulling up a comfy lawn chair and hanging out with your hound and a glass of wine. Of course our hounds can be very stylish...

The walk to 215 foot Taughannock Falls on Sunday has been a featured part of our New York Grapehounds event for sixteen years. This year it will be held on Sunday (7/24) at 10AM. Photo by Rally Pagulyan.
We tell folks that the walk to Taughannock Falls on Sunday morning is worth your trip to New York by itself. It is a spectacular, beautiful and easy one mile walk each way -- through a 400 foot deep gorge cut through rock -- to the 215 foot waterfall, tallest in the northeast. Get your portrait taken with your hound(s) at the Falls!
Schedule for 2021 We show this as a sample schedule for 2022 while we develop this year's schedule behind the scenes.
Keep in mind that this event does not herd you into a narrow schedule. You can make this a week long vacation, or a busy weekend. You can travel to different wineries around the lake or stay at one winery and sip wine in the shade. Arrive when you want, taste wine or beer or spirits where you want, and go where you want. Greyhounds are welcome everywhere . We offer wine tasting, food offerings, a Blessing of the Hounds, a Walk to the Falls, and much much more. It's your choice what activities you pursue.
