Friends of the Festival

Joining our Friends of the Festival program is the most intimate way to experience Charleston Wine + Food. In a typical year, our Friends receive early access to tickets before public on-sale, a personal concierge to handle all ticketing + festival needs, limited access to sold-out events post-public on-sale, VIP treatment throughout the event schedule, and year-round invitations to private events.

However, this year is anything but typical. Given the current pandemic and state of our industry, we are planning a 2021 + 2022 dual Friends of the Festival enrollment opportunity. In place of the in-person 2021 festival, we are designing virtual experiences that will uplift this community and continue our efforts to make Charleston Wine + Food a more inclusive + equitable organization.  This ensures that we will be able to best support our hospitality + culinary community now, and produce those in-person experiences you so love in the future. 

Through these opportunities, along with a late-spring 2021 launch of the 2022 festival programming + schedule, we hope to create meaningful ways for us to connect + support our community until it is safe for us to gather again.
