The Asheville Wine and Food Festival

The Asheville Wine & Food Festival, held on August 12-13, is a celebration of the Asheville area’s award-winning chefs and restaurants, wineries, and farmers.

The Asheville Wine and Food Festival kicks off with Sweets, held in the historic Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. On this evening guests can enjoy champagnes, specialty drinks, and dessert wines while sampling locally-sourced desserts. The Grand Tasting takes place at the WNC Expo Center on the 13th and features wine sampling as well as food samples from local restaurants. There will also be wine workshops, live entertainment, and more.

The Chefs Challenge Finale takes place during the Asheville Wine & Food Festival Grand Tasting. This weekly elimination competition has been going on since March, and the last two chefs will have their final cook-off here.

Head out to Asheville, just a short drive from Brevard, and enjoy all the Asheville Food and Wine Festival has to offer.
