Make it Extraordinary!

Connoisseur Day, 2-Day and Weekend passes provide the same schedule as general admission passes but with exclusive perks like access to the Connoisseur Lounge with special food and beverage service, speed line entry into the Tasting Tents where you’ll also find a Connoisseur Tent, and intimate dining experiences curated by award-winning chefs and beverage experts.


Not the Typical Festival Tasting Experience!

The Festival Tasting Tents are a 3-hour curated tasting experience with themed tents, live music and the best flavors of the South. Unlike many festival tasting experiences, there is only one fee for entry into the tents. Once inside guests have access to food and beverage samples at no additional charge. There are approximately 120 food and beverage tables in the tents, a variety of sponsor activation areas, and a Southern Marketplace to purchase regional goods.


The New Way to Workshop presented by Southern Living

Our new Master Studio program replaces the traditional Friday class schedule with 2-hour, immersive and hands-on studios that dig deep into the international influences that have shaped and continue to shape our region’s cuisine; take fire and sustainability to a new level on the grill; explore the relationship between cocktails and music; and journey around the globe to our favorite wine regions. Studio attendees with share their knowledge and interact with other guests during a special after-studio cocktail party.



Exceptional Dining Experiences!

We take the notion of great dining experiences to new heights by infusing our dinners with history, stories, trend and a lot of personality and then hosting them in unique venues from gorgeous private homes to edgy recording studios. These one-of-a-kind, intimate experiences are included with Connoisseur passes with some available for individual purchase.
