Charleston Wine + Food seeks to create welcoming + inclusive spaces with facilities that are physically accessible (ADA compliant) and open to people of any identifying gender, or “gender neutral,” as an important way to show full welcome + inclusion. We are dedicated to ensuring attendees have access to all festival goods + services, regardless of ability.
We encourage guests and participants to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. Please email email@example.com with any questions regarding wheelchair accessibility or parking options.
Culinary Village Parking
There will be ADA accessible parking options at Culinary Village @ Riverfront Park. View the parking map on the CHSWF mobile app (map will be available early 2023) and follow way-finding signage on site. We will also provide on-premise transportation to assist with the route from the parking lot to the main entrance. This transportation will be first-come, first-served.
Service animals are permitted throughout the festival. They must be properly trained and under proper care of their owners; remain by the handler’s side at all times and be harnessed, leashed, or tethered; be housebroken and relieve themselves outdoors; and be up to date on all legally required vaccinations. Anyone bringing a service animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury the animal causes. No emotional support, therapy, or companion animals will be permitted.
A safety plan for medical emergencies is in place for all festival events, and EMS personnel will be available at our larger-scale offerings. Additionally, a fully-equipped medical site staffed by trained personnel is located at the Culinary Village @ Riverfront Park. Check the Charleston Wine + Food mobile app for exact locations.
If you are attending an in-restaurant brunch, lunch, or Signature Dinner and have food allergies or dietary restrictions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, February 17. The chefs at these events will do their best to accommodate special dietary needs, but we emphasize this is only a request. While chefs provide a variety of food offerings at events, all other events are not able to accommodate special dietary needs or food allergies.
In continually striving to make our festival more accessible, we encourage you to contact us at email@example.com for any of your accessibility-related needs. Additionally, if you have any questions about ADA policies or services, please reach out to us. We welcome + encourage any feedback and suggestions from our attendees.
