Every March brings the culinary event of the season with the Charleston Wine + Food festival. The Charleston Wine + Food festival 2023 returns March 1-5 with events up and down Charleston’s waterfront. This non-profit festival supports local foodway initiatives, while showcasing a world-class program.

Around 35,000 people attended the 2022 Charleston Wine + Food festival with even more expected to return in 2023. Attend the Wine + Food Festival for an intimate experience of Charleston’s culinary and hospitality community. The event is 21+, but beyond that all ages will find some of the best food in Low County.

Admission to the festival is by event, so check the site for the Charleston Wine + Food Festival schedule and plan accordingly. Favorites from last year include the Waffle House Smackdown, Sarah’s Dumps Korean dumplings, and bourbon pairings. The full Charleston Wine + Food festival 2023 lineup of restaurants will be announced later this year.
