(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich) — The Midwest’s premier culinary celebration – the Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival – returns to DeVos Place, November 18 & 19. Since its inception in 2008, this Festival – named by Forbes.com in 2019 as one of a dozen “Fall Wine Festivals In North America You Don’t Want to Miss” – has grown into the largest and most popular of its kind in the Midwest.
“Last year we were delighted to gather again with so many of our exhibitors, friends, colleagues and guests to savor the finest foods and beverages in a safe and festive atmosphere,” says Dawn Baker, Festival Manager. “We are anticipating another spectacular event and look forward to presenting the stellar affair that Michigan has come to expect.”
The annual kick-off to the holiday season will once again be a two-day affair, catering to the local business community that is still ramping back up after a couple challenging years. The quality and diversity of food, beverage and culinary entertainment presented by the area’s finest chefs, restaurants and purveyors of libations will remain top shelf. There is no place like this event when it comes to the diversity of beverages available for sampling – from beer and cider to wine and spirts, as well as signature coffees and teas – with nearly 1,000 offerings from around the world under one roof.
“We are pleased to announce this year’s dates for the Wine, Beer & Food Festival,” said Richard MacKeigan, ASM Global Regional General Manager for DeVos Place. “The Festival provides a unique opportunity for vendors to showcase their offerings and for guests to enjoy a variety of food and beverage samples all under one roof. This event has become an annual tradition in West Michigan and beyond, and our focus remains providing the best experience for both exhibitors and attendees.”
The 15th Annual Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival will run from 4-10pm on Friday, November 18 and 2-10pm on Saturday, November 19. Admission tickets, pairing reservations, seminar schedules and other details will be posted in early fall at GRWineFestival.com.
