Food and Charleston have become synonymous over recent years, as the number of spectacular restaurants in the city has grown and grown (there really is no reason to have a bad meal in Charleston). The BBT Charleston Wine + Food Festival reflects the fantastic nature of the culinary scene in Charleston.
Now entering its 10th year, the Festival offers over 100 events in a five day period, starting this Wednesday, March 4th. Events range from cooking classes, bourbon workshops, food and wine tastings, and lunches and dinners to the Waffle House Smackdown. There will be James Beard Award-winning chefs, winemakers, storytellers and all sorts of other foodies. These are not just local folks either, as the Festival now has a national draw.
With locations all over Charleston (at various restaurants and other venues), the hub of the Festival is the Culinary Village on Marion Square. Some events are more intimate, others are huge. Tickets go quickly for many events, and you can check out their availability here. Prices range from $40 to $750.
The Festival runs from March 4 thought the 8th. All the information can be found on the BBT Wine + Food Festival website.
