The Big Sur Food and Wine Festival is a project of the Big Sur Food & Wine Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization created to be a vehicle of support to other local organizations while engaging in unique educational and entertainment activities that blend fine food and wine with Big Sur character.
The Big Sur Food & Wine Festival holds events to promote Big Sur as a culinary destination, supporting the overall health, character and vitality of the Big Sur community. Its intention is to stimulate the local economy and donate event proceeds to support local nonprofits that benefit Health, Safety, Education and Arts. In 2017 we have designated specific beneficiaries including a special road project in Palo Colorado and The Big Sur Fire & Storm Relief Fund.
Additionally, we are committing 100% of proceeds from all silent auctions to support fire relief & recovery for our neighbors in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties.
