About: Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, the country’s most popular Southern epicurean weekend, is only weeks away and its celebrated Tasting Tents will once again take guests on an epic journey through the best flavors of the South from Texas to D.C. Not the typical Festival tasting experience, the AF&WF Tasting Tents are an all-you-can-indulge experience that allows guests the opportunity to eat, drink and explore the region’s top food and drink products and chef creations while also celebrating the international influences that have shaped our region. Piedmont Park’s Greensward Promenade will once again provide the perfect backdrop for the Tasting Tents, which will take place during the evening on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2 and in the afternoon on Sunday, June 3. The 2018 Tasting Tents will include 94 food and beverage exhibitor booths featuring 27 food producers, 70 wine brands, 80 spirit brands, and 64 beer brands and a rotating line-up of 35 different chefs each day. Highlights of the Tents include a cocktail garden, a Connoisseur Tent, and a newly added Southern Marketplace featuring favorite artisan goods and housewares. Some of the themes for this year’s Tents include Improbable Pairs, an exploration of unexpected wine, beer, cocktail and food pairings; Palate Pleasers, a flavor-driven sampling experience; and Ingredient Spotlight, a showcase of the region’s quintessential ingredients. The Tents will also feature Wine Riot, a sister event to the Festival that will debut in Atlanta this fall. The 2018 Tasting Tents are scheduled from 7:30 – 10:30 pm on Friday, June 1 and from 6:30 – 9:30 pm on Saturday, June 2. Sunday’s Tasting Tent session will round out the weekend from 1:30 – 4:30 pm on June 3. Through the ticket packages, food and drink lovers can customize their Atlanta Food & Wine Festival experience by joining us for a few hours, a day or even a weekend. Individual Tasting Tent Passes are $100 and include access to unlimited tastes and sips from the South’s top chefs and purveyors.
