WNC Magazine celebrates Asheville's status as a culinary nirvana with the Asheville Wine and Food Festival over two nights. The first night, dubbed Sweet, indulges everyone's love for dessert. Tickets cost $35. The event will be from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Grove Arcade. The second night, called the Grand Tasting, brings the area's best chefs together for the WNC Chefs Challenge and offers plenty of samples – not just of food, but also of wine. Live entertainment and workshops make this a must-attend for foodies. The Grand Tasting will be held from 1-5 p.m. at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center. Tickets cost $40 for general admission, or $65 for VIP access, which gets ticket holders inside one hour early.
