What Ticket Sales Support

Our Mission:

To celebrate, educate, enrich, and promote the Lowcountry’s diverse culinary + hospitality community through world-class experiences.

The Charleston Wine + Food festival is a direct articulation of our mission. It’s a platform to share stories, elevate the people in this community, celebrate our city, and create an enriching experience for the people who live + work here. 

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ticket sales go directly to the production of the festival. Ninety-five cents of every dollar we spend producing the festival has a direct measurable impact on our city’s economy. By purchasing a ticket to a festival event, you are helping us to support our local food + beverage community to participate in this festival, share the unique stories and histories of our foodways, and create a meaningful economic impact on our city.

How we support our talent

In an effort to be a more inclusive organization and decrease the barriers for chef + beverage professionals to participate in our festival, we have several ways that we directly compensate our talent.
