Save the date! November 5-7th 2015

Greetings friends, supporters and all of you food and wine lovers!

It's mid-July, summer is upon us, and we are in planning mode for this year's Festival.

There have definitely been challenges for us manifesting what Travel and Leisure calls “One of the Top Ten Food and Wine Festivals"! Sadly, our partners for the Gateway to Big Sur opening gala night, the wonderful Hyatt Carmel Highlands  ( are undergoing major renovations to the Pacific's Edge dining room and California Market the very weekend of the Festival. We have relished working closely with our good friends there, and will miss the lovely energy they have gifted us.

Meanwhile, we are looking into other venues for opening night, and will keep you updated as to details.

As we move forward, we wish to thank those of you who voted for us for the Mission Main Street grant proposal - we are keeping our fingers crossed! Thanks to Chase Bank for creating twenty grants to be given to various worthy organizations to further their work!

As always, we thank you for your ongoing support of the Festival and shall endeavor to keep you updated as plans unfold.
