The 12th Annual Charleston Wine + Food festival began with a bang last night, but there’s no time to rest as the fun continues through the weekend!

For those attending the massive event, here are some tips and tricks provided by the festival:

  • Grab your tickets – Your tickets to the festival are easily printable, but can also be accessed on your mobile phone!  Use the latter method for a paperless, guilt-free, and organized event experience – because we know you¹ll be having too much fun to worry about anything else.
  • Navigate safely – Whether you’re a visiting attendee or a lucky local, remember that parking can often be tricky downtown. Take advantage of our partner Über and their fantastic app, they’ll be your designated driver.
  • Dress in layers – Charleston’s bipolar weather, time-and-time again, proves to be just as unpredictable as it is beautiful. Whipping wind or intense rays can ruin your day if you’re not prepared, so plan on packing an umbrella, your sunnies, and a cute hat just in case – all events are held rain or shine.
  • Snag these nifty gadgets – A few fun items can, and will, make all the difference for your festival experience. Check out these wine wipes to get rid of any messy stains and keep you smiling bright. To ensure you can snap photos all day, pick up a phone case that protects and charges your cell!  Last but not least, comfortable footwear is an essential for those long Charleston days and even more exciting nights, so keep your precious toes in mind!

From unique excursions and signature dinners, to the always-happening Culinary Village, there is a lot to see and do so remember to pace yourself, have that 5th glass of wine, and enjoy all of Charleston’s charm. Tickets are still available to many of the events at
