Now That South Beach's Food and Wine Festival is Over, Head to Charleston

February 28, 2014 at 10:03 AM | by | ()

One of the best food festivals of the season has to be the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, as the offerings here—and the weather—can’t be beat. Unfortunately the festival did its thing last weekend, so it’s time to look forward to the next big event. We’re thinking Charleston is also a great weather destination, and they have their own wine and food festival ready to do its thing between March 6 and 9.

Plenty of authors, chefs, and other culinary celebrities will be on hand at this year’s BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival. Folks like Nancy Silverton, Andy Ricker, and Michael Toscano will all be around to discuss their books, restaurants, and their approaches when it comes to making really tasty things.

As far as the good stuff is concerned—like the eating and drinking—festival organizers will set something up they’re calling a culinary village. That’s where you will find 40 food and wine vendors from across the country, and it will lead those in attendance to things like the main event tent, artisan market, and beer garden.

There’s plenty of events and offerings throughout the festival, but of course that’s all going to cost you. If you want to go all in and just do everything and anything whenever you want the $315 party animal pass will get you access to pretty much everything. There are some exclusions, but the inclusions are an oyster roast, a rigs, pigs, and swigs event, and even an after hours shindig sponsored by JetBlue.

For those looking to book individual events it’s not a problem, as festival organizers are happy to sell those to you as well. Tickets start at around $40 and head upwards from there, and there are plenty of offerings around that price point. Individual events seem to top out at between $150 and $175, so you definitely will need to prioritize your needs and wants when it comes to attendance.

Of course there’s plenty to check out in Charleston as well, so be sure to save some cash to check out the scene in South Carolina as well.
