Columbia Food and Wine Festival 2021

Are you looking for something fun to do while you are in Columbia, SC in May? Look no further. This year, Columbia will host the Columbia Food and Wine Festival. The festival will take place May 20 - 23, 2021. The major sponsors of the event this year are Free Times, The Charitable Plate, and South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association. At J King Real Estate, we are thankful for organizations that help put on these kinds of events as these events add to the desire to live in the Midlands area. To help show our thankfulness, we have also helped by becoming a sponsor of this event this year.

The inaugural Columbia Food and Wine Festival happened back in 2018. It hosted over 65 vendors and was attended by over 1,000 guests! Year after year, the festival has grown in interest from local restaurants, breweries, wineries, and from the public that attends this great event. While last year’s event was reduced in size due to the pandemic, they were still able to host an amazing event that hosted over 400 guests. This year, they are expecting to continue the tradition of raising awareness for the local vendors and produce an event that is worthy of repeating year after year!

If you are looking for something to do, check out their website. We recommend buying your tickets soon because this event will surely become a sell-out.
