For me, mid-fall always means hitting up the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival! I have attended for the past few years now and still like going to hang out with friends while being surrounded by wine and food, especially Papa Chocolat’s handmade chocolates. This year’s event will be taking place on November 6-7 at the Shaw Conference Centre.

It’s that time of year again… The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival is back the 13th year on Oct 24-25! I have had fantastic experiences the last two years that I have attended the event. I always look forward to trying some of the wonderful food and wine the city (and beyond) has to offer.
For those that are not familiar the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival, it takes place in Halls A-C of the Shaw Conference Centre and is food and beverage filled extravaganza. The Grand Tasting Hall will be serving up a collection of wines from around the globe, premium spirits, single malt and blended scotches, port, specialty liqueurs, and import and micro-brewed beer to go with tasty food from local restaurants, hotels and food purveyors. There will definitely be something for everyone and if you want to see what you’re in store for, check out the lists of wineries participating, other adult beverages and food samples! In addition to the food and wine, the Dairy Farmers of Canada will be hosting free cheese seminars (first come first serve) – I missed participating last year but it looked like a lot of fun!
Wow. Time really does fly by when you’re having fun… but I am kind of back on the blogging wagon (or at least trying to get back on). So let’s talk about the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival! As you may remember, I went for the first time last year (and hosted a giveaway back then too) and while I never got around to posting a review of the festival, I will say I had a fabulous time and pretty much ate my way through the event (I think I had to be rolled home?!).
The Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival is back for the 12th year! How did I not know about this from years 1-10 – I blame the poor student budget for keeping away me from wine and food. Anyways, the Festival is back next weekend in the Shaw Conference Centre and I have a pair of tickets to give away to one of my awesome readers (despite a lack of reading material lately).
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.
