Cheers To Great Taste

15th Annual Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival November 18 & 19, 2022 — DeVos Place, Grand Rapids

The 15th Annual Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival returns to DeVos Place, Friday, November 18 through Saturday, November 19, offering a world-class epicurean experience in the heart of West Michigan. Festival goers will find an unparalleled offering of food, beverage and culinary entertainment presented by area chefs, restaurants and purveyors of libations from around the globe.

This Festival has established itself as Michigan’s annual tasting event, measured by more than 1,000 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 will deliver a grand experience that is sure to please every palate.

Join me on the Meijer Food Stage at 6:30pm on Friday and Saturday. I'll be doing a culinary demonstration "Elevating Pasta" using these sponsors and products - Del Grosso, Stonehouse Breads and Frederik's by Meijer.

Pairing Tickets:

Enhance your festival experience!

Plan to be wined and dined! One of the unique experiences offered at the Festival each year is one hour seated multi-course meals that are paired with wine, beer or spirits. Chefs and sommeliers work together as they prepare, present and serve offering guests a special opportunity to learn from the chefs about their choices for the pairings.

*Tickets for pairings may be purchased online with the purchase of admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each pairing is limited to 20 seats.
