Big Flavors, Big Talent and All Things Southern Merge for a One-of-a-Kind Weekend in Atlanta
Located in the hub of the South, the seventh annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival returns June 1-4 to roll up massive sleeves and dig in to all things Southern. Bringing together an unparalleled line-up of award winning Southern food and beverage talent from Texas to D.C., the Festival spotlights the refined and revered traditions of one of the most culturally rich regions in the US. Through curated programming that includes more than 80 Learning Experiences, all-you-can-indulge Tasting Tents, and Dinners and Events, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival is an unforgettable four-day weekend designed to educate and entertain.
“Part conference, part party, and one delicious Southern experience, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival is the ultimate epicurean destination. No other event in the country convenes more than 200 chefs, restaurateurs, barkeeps, sommeliers, distiller and brewers to tell the story of Southern food and drink,” explains Dominique Love, Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Co-Founder. “Because of its vibrant culinary scene, great event venues, and easy accessibility, Atlanta is a great host for the weekend. We’re Atlanta by destination and Southern by design.”
In its seventh year, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival line-up reveals the rich traditions and stories behind Southern food and drink culture. Exciting program additions plus returning Festival favorites include a new series of Masterclasses, an expanded Advisory Council, Friday and Saturday evening Tasting Tents, Connoisseur Dinner Series in partnership with the Lee Bros, and the Designer Diner Brunch at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center.
The beloved Festival Tasting Tents aim to provide guests with up close and delicious connections to the region’s best chefs, mixologists, artisans and products. Returning to the Greensward area of Piedmont Park, the all-you-can indulge layout of the Tasting Tents will feature new session times on Friday and Saturday evenings giving ticketholders more time to soak up the weekend. Connoisseur ticketholders will also enjoy the return of Connoisseur Tasting Tent with exclusive access to Festival Advisory Board Council Members, Master Sommeliers and Winemakers.
