After 20 years filled with wine, spirits, craft beers, and cocktails, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival is still going strong two decades after its inception.
Coming back to Calgary’s Stampede Park BMO Centre, the festival will feature the best of local drinks and cuisine throughout the two day event.
- Community Fall Fair 2017 features a free pumpkin spice pancake breakfast
- Traffic survey ranks Calgary as 10th best city in the world to drive in
- WestJet unveils its new ultra-low-cost carrier
More than 200 booths will be lined up for the festival, and over 700 different drinks to taste.
If you’re worried about getting a little hazy after those 700 sips, the food on hand will be sure to sober you up – including ice creams, Japanese sweets, tuna poke nachos, lamb tartare, and more.
Last year, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival donated over $21,000 back into local organizations and charities, and they are hoping to top that number after 2017’s weekend.
The event runs from Friday, October 13 to Saturday, October 14, and tickets can be purchased either online or at the door, depending on the session.
If you’re looking to sample the wide variety of wine and food, sampling coupons will be available at the Grand Tasting Hall for $0.50 each, with a minimum purchase of 10.
