May 14–18, 2014

Eating and drinking is divine, and connecting with your food is heaven.

Themed events set the table for visiting winemakers from six continents to pop corks on world-class wines.

Collaboration results in delicious meals, new global friendships and fond memories.

Dishes range from the elegant to the quaint, complex to the deconstructed… but always delicious.

A movable feast in six counties.
Kitchens can pop up in open fields, rustic structures and sentimental spaces.

Opening doors for students to gain culinary experience and collaborate with award-winning chefs from six continents.

Meet winemakers, brewers and distillers when they wax lyrical about their libations.

Welcome

The MidAtlantic Wine + Food Festival™ will once again bring 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 descend upon the east coast to collaborate on 35 brunches, lunches, tastings and dinners. Stay tuned for preview events, too!

We cordially invite you 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.”

Over the past two years, the Festival has engaged 126 chefs and 28 winemakers from 6 continents, has issued 6,500 tickets, and has sold out 46 events. The Festival has drawn attendees from more than 15 countries, 17 states and 173 zip codes. We invited students from 3 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 hope to extend our reach into more of the places that make the MidAtlantic unique.

2015 events will be announced as they are confirmed, but in the meantime, feel free to reflect back on the Festival’s history, or look to the future with us:
