The 13th Annual Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival, originally slated for November 19-21, has been postponed for one year due to the organizer’s inability – during this challenging pandemic time – to confirm commitments from the large number of volunteers and industry specialists necessary to execute this world-class event.
For more than a decade, downtown Grand Rapids and DeVos Place has come alive mid-November with an unprecedented display of food, beverage and culinary entertainment presented by the area’s finest chefs, restaurants and purveyors of libations from around the globe in what Forbes.com named one of a dozen “Fall Wine Festivals In North America You Don’t Want to Miss” in 2019.
The WBFF has established itself as Michigan's annual tasting event, measured by more than 1,500 wines, beers, ciders and spirits from around the world, along with creations from the area's finest restaurants. From the connoisseur who lives and breathes for the finer things in life to the novice looking for an introduction to the world of food and spirits, this festival delivers a grand experience that is sure to please every palette. We look forward to announcing the 2021 dates soon.
