The restaurant industry has been hit extremely hard during the Covid-19 pandemic. And culinary events aren't immune either.
The Charleston Wine + Food Festival for 2021 has been canceled. Organizers publicly announced the decision late this week based on pandemic concerns and "the state of the industry that we exist to uplift" in social media posts and an e-mail blast.
Each year in March we look forward to welcoming members of our culinary + hospitality community from around the world to connect, share, and grow through wine + food-centric experiences. With Charleston as our backdrop and the region’s unique foodways as our muse, this festival has grown over the past 15 years to encompass more than 120 events over 5 days and welcomes nearly 28,000 guests annually.
The organizers also discussed their future plans in the place of the in-person gatherings.
We remain committed to our local culinary + hospitality community for whom the festival was created to uplift and drive business towards. Our mission is to produce experiences that celebrate, educate, and promote the Lowcountry's diverse culinary + hospitality community.
