About The Festival

The festival is a versatile family event targeting an extensive profile of patrons including food and wine enthusiasts, culinary specialists, music and art lovers, trendsetters and just those persons seeking a relaxing and entertaining day with friends and family. 

Our patrons will be able to taste from over 32 food stations, participate in seminars, chef demonstrations, and a lot more.  Another important component of the festival is culinary education aimed at expanding the knowledge base of our patrons around various food and beverage related concepts including healthy cooking, different or emerging cooking techniques as well as understanding the origins and production of certain products
