Like so many events last year, the Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival had to be cancelled. Organizers are gearing up for the 14th Annual Festival that will take place this fall!

The Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival will open up on Thursday, November 18th and run through Saturday, November 20th at DeVos Place. Hours will be 6-9 pm on Thursday, 4-10 pm on Friday and 2-10 pm on Saturday.

The festival features a diverse display of food, beverage and culinary entertainment presented by the area’s finest chefs, restaurants and purveyors of libations from around the globe. Since its inception in 2008, this Festival – named by Forbes.com in 2019 as of a dozen “Fall Wine Festivals In North America You Don’t Want to Miss” – has grown to be the largest and most popular of its kind in the Midwest.

In a recent press release, Henri Boucher, the show's producer, said: "“Our confidence in producing this Festival is buoyed by the announcement of many events that are scheduled in the coming months including The Detroit Home Show, The Chicago Auto Show and ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, to name a few. Following the brunt of the pandemic, people will be looking to finally spread their wings and gather with their friends. We are excited to once again welcome our exhibitors, presenters and the public to join us as we celebrate the return of events in a safe and welcoming venue.”
