We enrich and educate the Charleston community
The programming presented annually at the Charleston Wine + Food festival is a compilation of shared stories and experiences from our local food + beverage industry. Food is a powerful connector and storyteller. It allows our organization to present histories, cultures, and practices that are important and deserve attention and recognition to the world. We enlighten, enrich, and educate our community through food experiences.
We put the Charleston food community on a national stage
One of our cornerstone purposes is to bring national recognition to the food scene of Charleston. Over the last 16 years, the festival has welcomed nearly 335,000 attendees and generated over $112.2 million in economic impact for our city; it is a direct contributing factor to the growth of Charleston’s culinary brand and its success.
