4th Annual Greenwich Wine + Food Festival Returns: Schedule, Chefs, and Details Released

5 Aug

Wine, beer, bourbon, tacos, burgers, bbq, and celebrity chefs…oh freaking my!  That’s just a tiny portion of what’s in store for you at the 4th Annual Greenwich Wine & Food Festival.  We’re talking about three days (9/25-27) of excess, featuring some of the best local food, drinks, and chefs around Fairfield and Westchester Counties all in one spot.  Tickets for the events vary in price, but it all goes down at the beautiful setting of the Roger Sherman Baldwin Park.  We’ve always had an amazing time at the Greenwich Wine & Food Festival, and this year will be no different…especially because they are set to donate even more money to Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp!

There’s so much going on this year, (wayyyy more than last year) so let’s break it down for ya day by day with some special deals at the end.
