Prepare to tantalize your taste buds! For the fifth year in a row, FestivALL Charleston will host a food and beverage-themed fundraiser, “FeastivALL,” a gourmet dinner with wine and beer pairing, on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017. Chef Paul Smith of Buzz Food Service and Heath Ax of Berry Hills Country Club will join forces to design a unique menu that will delight all in attendance.

Like last year’s event, guests will enjoy five courses, each paired with a fine wine and craft beer chosen by John Brown (wine) and Rich Ireland (beer), Charleston’s top beverage consultants.  After each course, guests will vote for the beverage pairing they like best.

In the spirit of FestivALL, the night will be a celebration of artistic expression, hosted by Mountain Stage’s Larry Groce and featuring a brief performance between courses by some of Charleston’s most talented performers. Guests will also get the first look at schedule highlights and headliners for FestivALL 2017.

There will also be items for silent auction including vacation opportunities, one-of-a-kind pieces by local artists, unique dining opportunities and more.

Tickets are $110 per person and are partially tax deductible. They go on sale Thursday, Dec. 8 online at http://festivallcharleston.com. Seating is limited, and the event has sold out 3 of the past 4 years.

The evening is sponsored in part by Berry Hills Country Club, Galaxy Distributing of West Virginia, and North Central Distributors Inc. Proceeds from the event will go toward the 2017 FestivALL celebrations.

FestivALL is planning additional food and art events for the February weekend. A children’s themed cooking class and other hands-on events are to be anticipated on Friday and Sunday. More details will be released soon!
