We have a winner – Congratulations to Camille Lorieau (Number 19)!
Wow this blogging business is way more awesome than I expected as I am able to share some of that awesomeness (with actions and not just words) with all of you. I have a pair of Friday night (November 2) entrance tickets to give away for the 11th Annual Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival!
Before we get into all the details on how you enter to win, let’s just talk about the event itself. This year will be my first year attending and I am very excited to be surrounded by food and wine (I don’t even know where to start). The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival will be taking place on Friday November 2 (4-10 pm) and Saturday November 3 (3-10 pm) at the Shaw Conference Centre in Halls A-C.
There will be a plethora of wine (and spirits and beer) from a number of wineries and spirits and beer producers plus great food from several local restaurants and hotels (Links will take you directly to the pdf list of participating vendors) for you to enjoy. There will be interesting things like spiced whiskys, hemp-based vodkas and fruit-infused beers! On the food front – potential samples include bison gyozas and a port and pomegranate truffle.
While you indulge, you’ll also have opportunities to chat with the experts on the products you’re tasting. If you do happen to find a wine, spirit or beer that you love, Liquor Depot will have a store on-site so you can pick it up on your way out (I love one stop shopping!). There is a Liquor Connect booth that has free wine holder plates for the first 1000 people who stop by the booth each night so there are some perks for arriving early!
Please note that while I can get the winners in the door – you’re on your own with the sampling coupons. The coupons are $0.50 each and can be purchased in the Grand Tasting Hall (Cash Only). Each item will range from 1 to 20 (or more) coupons so if you’re planning on sampling luxury items, be prepared to hand over more coupons.
How to Win!
Let’s keep things simple for my first giveaway:
- Just leave me a comment below saying what item(s) you definitely want to sample.
- Tickets are for entrance on Friday night only.
- Please note that this is an adults only (18+) event and minors (including infants/babies) are not permitted to attend.
- And please make sure the email you leave in the email field is valid as that is how I’ll be getting in touch with the winner.

Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!*
