The North Fork region is energized for a new kind of event this Veteran’s Day weekend (November 9th through 11th), called Taste North Fork. Visitors and local residents alike, will enjoy special offers at wineries, restaurants, shops, attractions and accommodations, such as our North Fork Bed & Breakfasts. There will be additional transportation to the East End from New York City, Connecticut and the surrounding area, as well as a free shuttle route along the North Fork once you are here!
In partnership with the Hampton Jitney, a free shuttle from Riverhead to Orient Point will be available to all visitors. There will be a Riverhead loop, for stops between Riverhead and Love Lane in Mattituck, as well as a Greenport loop, for stops between Mattituck and Greenport. The shuttles will circulate every 45 minutes with passenger access from the Long Island Rail Road station in Mattituck and Cross Sound Ferry terminal in Orient Point. The full list of activities and stops is posted on EastEndGetaway.com.
The East End Tourism Alliance worked closely with the Long Island Wine Council, the North Fork Promotion Council and Greenport Business Improvement District on this initiative to provide a significant boost to the local economy during the off-season. Taste North Fork is part of an important effort to extend the tourism season on the East End of Long Island. The project is supported by a grant awarded to the East End Tourism Alliance by New York State’s Empire State Development and the I ♥ NY Division of Tourism under Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council initiative.
The North Fork Bed & Breakfast Association (NFBBA) is thrilled to participate with a special offer to our member Bed & Breakfast guests, who will receive a certificate for a complimentary wine tasting and bottle of wine at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard’s tasting barn. This offer is available at the following locations:
