Other 2017 Food & Wine coverage:

The Festival Center

The Festival Center is home of many showcases, culinary demos, beverage seminars, and of course… merchandising.  It is hosted in the old Wonder’s of Life pavilion.  Most of the demos and seminars in here are very low cost (usually under $20 a person) and range from wine flights, to cocktails, to dishes, to pairings.  Be sure to hit up one of these on your trip to get even more out of the festival. Merchandise ranges from glasses and wine, to expensive hand bags and Annual Pass holder exclusives.
