Grand Tasting Tent
The Baker Motor Company Grand Tasting Tent features over 40 high-quality food and beverage vendors from around the country – a great way to try out top restaurants, purveyors, wineries and culinary creations that you won’t forget.
Hands-On Kitchen (New!)
Nothing is more Southern than being shooed into the Kitchen to roll up your sleeves and lend a helping hand. The festival’s new Hands-On Kitchen, presented by SCE&G, is a dynamic learning experience featuring guest chefs leading participation in the creation of classic lowcountry and Southern dishes, all with a personalized and modern approach. Learn to pickle, knead, devil, and craft cuisine in the heart of our Culinary Village, side-by-side with friends, chefs, and culinary personalities. Get ready to get your hands dirty!
Music Stage (New!)
Nothing pairs better with wine + food than great music. The Music Stage will highlight favorite and up-and-coming local musicians as well as some nationally recognized bands. Dancing is welcome, or feel free to rest in provided seating areas and enjoy the tunes.
Rosé Garden + Grilling Area
Set up as a glorious French outdoor café in our expanded Rosé Garden + Grilling Area presented by Château D’Esclans just off of our new Third Space tent. Learn from live grilling demos and sample food hot off the EVO grills served from Chef to you!
The Third Space (New!)
Third spaces are anchors of community life and foster broader, more creative interaction in a laid back way. They are highly accessible, welcoming, comfortable, filled with old and new friends, and food and drink are paramount. The festival’s Third Space is a new part of the Culinary Village landscape in a dynamic, multi-sided, airy tent. Award-winning chefs from Charleston and their guest chefs will host intimate demos and tasting throughout each day. Third Space guests will learn, engage, and delight in friendly stories, high-quality ingredients, culinary tools and tricks, and compelling cuisine that will inspire and amaze.
