Friends of the Festival

Charleston Wine + Food is a catalyst for connections that inspire curiosity through thoughtful storytelling + meaningful experiences with a sense of place. Our Friends of the Festival not only champion our higher purpose as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, but also the Charleston culinary + hospitality community at large.


Friends of the Festival receive early access to tickets before public on-sale, a personal concierge to handle all ticketing + festival needs, limited access to sold-out events, VIP treatment throughout the festival week, and a curated festival badge. Our Friends program is not only the most intimate way to experience Charleston Wine + Food, but also the perfect way to take your festival experience to the next level.



Our Friends of the Festival support both Charleston Wine + Food and the industries that define + connect our community. We would love for you to join our CHSWFF family and look forward to creating meaningful connections through shared stories + experiences in 2022 and beyond.
