The Annual Greenwich Wine + Food Festival
October 1, 2022 - October 7, 2022
The Annual Greenwich Wine + Food is coming October 1, 2022 – October 7, 2022. The week-long festivities will recreate some of the most memorable experiences from the past decade of festivals and special events, as well as introduce new events for guests. Beneficiaries include two national non-profit organizations with roots in Connecticut: The Jacques Pépin Foundation and Wholesome Wave.
The 2022 Greenwich Wine + Food celebration will kick off on Saturday, October 1 with “The Big Easy,” honoring the sights, sounds and flavors of New Orleans as the event creates a “mini” French Quarter at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. This completely new, dine-around event will feature acclaimed area chefs serving up signature dishes, staying true to the flavors and recipes of New Orleans, paired with Bourbon Street’s iconic drinks such as Hurricanes and Mudslides, as well as local craft brews and wine. Live music including legendary groups (artists to be announced at a later date) will add to the spirit of the evening. The 2022 class of Serendipity’s Most Innovative Chefs will also be honored at this lively event. This year, Serendipity recognizes a diverse and inventive group: Steven Chen (MIKU, Greenwich, CT), Will Friedman (Kawa Ni, Westport, CT), Jared Sippel (L’Ostal, Darien, CT) and Renee Touponce (Oyster Club, Mystic, CT).
Tickets are non-refundable.
