Charleston Wine + Food is a catalyst for connections that inspires curiosity through thoughtful storytelling + meaningful experiences with a sense of place. At the heart of it, we are an organization that believes that human connection is the most powerful force on Earth and shared stories are the catalyst for this connection. Stories define us, connect us, and give us a sense of place + purpose in life.
As we prepare for a 2022 festival season filled with heart, flavor, and Lowcountry flare, we hope that you will consider joining our festival family. Our mission is to produce experiences that celebrate, educate, and promote the Lowcountry’s diverse culinary + hospitality community, and we remain committed to uplifting and driving business towards those in our community. As a Friend of the Festival, you champion not only our higher purpose as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, but also the Charleston culinary + hospitality community at large.
We value + appreciate your eagerness to support both Charleston Wine + Food and the industries that define + connect our community. Your commitment will allow us to continue to create meaningful experiences that foster human connection in 2022 and beyond.
