The MidAtlantic Wine + Food Festival™ again brings the world to the MidAtlantic, and the MidAtlantic to the world in 2015. From Wednesday, May 13 through Sunday, May 17, 2015, chefs and winemakers from all over the globe descended upon 7 counties in 4 states on the east coast of the U.S. to collaborate on 35 brunches, lunches, tastings and dinners.
We once again welcomed guests to enjoy one-of-a-kind epicurean experiences, meet and chat with vintners, brewers, distillers and other experts, and take a culinary journey through what frontier historian Frederick Jackson Turner dubbed “the typically American region.”
Click the links above to read about our 60+ International, National and MidAtlantic chefs (2 from Wilmington Sister Cities), and our 23 winemakers and wineries from around the world. We've got chefs and winemakers from 6 continents! (And, hey, if you know an Antarctic chef or winemaker, please, let us know!)
From 2013 to 2014, the Festival engaged 126 chefs and 28 winemakers from 6 continents, issued 6,500 tickets, and sold out 46 events. The Festival has drawn attendees from more than 15 countries, 17 states and 173 zip codes. We invited students from 4 high school culinary programs into Festival kitchens.
In 2014, Festival events took place in 14 cities and towns, in 4 counties and 2 states. In 2015, we are extending our reach into more of the places that make the MidAtlantic unique.
Cheers to 2016!
