St. Francisville Food & Wine Festival
Delicious, innovative food. Lively, danceable tunes. Creative culture bearers and storytellers. A beautiful, historically-immersed site. All of the things that have inspired this magazine’s work for thirty-nine years now come together in perfect, joyful synchronicity at the second annual St. Francisville Food and Wine Festival. On the beautiful grounds of the Myrtles Historic Inn and Restaurant 1796, readers, dancers, and diners will convene for a fall day in the company of some of our region’s most celebrated chefs.
In between the decadent sips and bites, roam the grounds to enjoy tastings of select wines and spirits from area purveyors, a beer garden showcasing Louisiana and Mississippi craft brews, live cooking demonstrations from celebrated chefs, and live music from the festival stage. There’ll be plenty of room for dancing, so choose your shoes appropriately! 1 pm–5 pm. $95. VIP/Early Bird admission at noon, $125.
Winemaker Dinner: On Friday evening, VIP ticket holders will enjoy a seated five-course meal featuring Keenan Family Winery of Napa Valley. The feast will be prepared by the City Group Hospitality family of restaurants—Beausoleil, City Pork, Proverbial Wine Bistro, Rouj Creole, and Spoke & Hub—paired with select wines by the Keenan Family Winery, and served at the Ridgecrest private residence. 5:30 pm–9 pm. VIP ticket holders will also enjoy entrance to the festival an hour early and a special VIP Courtyard experience, providing exclusive access to a private bar, buffet, seating, and restroom facilities. $250.
