MidAtlantic Wine & Food FestivalThe Mid Atlantic Wine and Food Festival is coming back to Wilmington, Delaware for its third consecutive year. If you missed festivities in previous years, rest assured that you are truly in for a treat! Crafty chefs along with wine and beer connoisseurs from five different continents are scheduled to gather in Wilmington May 18 - 18, 2014, where their talents will be combined with that of local chefs for the ultimate food and wine tasting experience.

This international festival is comprised of over 40 events, some of which take place in historical sites that are usually off limits to the general public. A ticket to the wine and food festival is like a VIP pass that grants you access to some of the most exclusive venues Greater Wilmington has to offer. In addition to the wide variety of featured recipes, attendees will also be introduced to delightful entertainment in the Grand Opera House and World Café Live, and educational presentations via the Delaware Art Museum.

The Mid Atlantic Wine and Food Festival is a unique event that combines the love of food, the thirst for knowledge, and the passion for history, all while promoting cultural diversity and local charity. The event itself is charity driven, as it came into existence via a grant from the Longwood Foundation, a Delaware non profit organization that was introduced in 1937 and has generated more than two billion dollars worth of local funding. This particularly tasty festival is aimed at community bonding and supporting the arts. The ticket sales from 2013 have fueled this year's festival, which is anticipated to be bigger, better, and, if possible, even tastier.

MidAtlantic Wine & Food FestivalSince the festival features food from five different continents, ticket holders can expect an international smorgasbord of culturally diverse dishes, as well as exotic wines and craft beers. The posted menu features everything from hand rolled sushi to farm fresh entrees to full on three and four course meals. Many of these events feature interactive food experiences, where diners participate in every step of the food process and often engage in meet and greets with internationally acclaimed chefs. Many of these chefs have appeared on television shows such as Hell's Kitchen, while others are regional or even local favorites.

Anyone with a passion for the culinary arts is certain to enjoy this food fabulous festival. The event will begin on May 14th, in the heart of Wilmington's Live, Work, Play community.
