Celebrity chefs and internationally acclaimed wineries will once again take over the entertainment capital of the world, as the wildly popular Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival returns with city-wide events. Enjoy intimate access to chefs and winemakers throughout the weekend at themed parties, dining experiences, wine seminars, cooking demos, and a charity auction brunch.
An exclusive foodie festival, the inaugural event welcomes more than 15,000 attendees to sample the incomparable tastes from 140 celebrity chefs and nearly 300 acclaimed wineries. The festival is open to the public, allowing passionate food, wine, and spirit lovers to discover new and exciting products normally not available to the public.
Last year there were more than 60 city-wide events, weekend highlights included the Red Carpet Premiere, where celebrities such as Randy Jackson and Kathy Griffin shared the spotlight with celebrity chefs like Daniel Boulud and Tim Love and the mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa, a Champagne and Caviar fete at the L’Ermitage hotel, two epic Grand Tastings, LIVE on the Plaza where the stage was shared by GRAMMY-winning artists Train and Wolfgang Puck, and a star-studded Auction Brunch at the newly re-opened Bel Air Hotel to cap the weekend.
