We are all invited to the WGBH Food & Wine Festival, from Thursday, September 15 to Sunday, September 18, for a weekend-long celebration offering spectacular cuisine and fine beverages from around the world.

Showcasing a bounty of talented artisans and quality-conscious, award-winning chefs, it’s no wonder that many consider the festival, “the most loved food-and-wine experience in the region.”

For the best value and most exclusive participation, we are told that the All-Access Passport ticket promises a weekend of delicious indulgences for festival-goers. For example: VIP early admission to the Chef’s Gala with an exclusive access pass to the VIP lounge; VIP early admission to the Artisan Taste with an exclusive access pass to the VIP Vintners Lounge; access to all the celebrity chef demos in the Culinary Theater; entrance to the Grand Tasting Pavilion; a pass to the Brunch Bar on 9/18… and much, much more.

The Culinary Theater will host live cooking demos, panel discussions, book signings and talks featuring national and local celebrity chefs including Jody Adams, Dante de Magistris, Mary Ann Esposito, Frank McClelland, Michael Schlow, Kathy Sidell and Jeff Williams, among others. Samples of more than 100 different types of beverages will be featured in the Grand Tasting Pavilion.

Attendees must be 21 to attend. Children and infants will not be granted entrance under any circumstances.

WGBH studios are located in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood at One Guest Street. For more information, call 617-300-2000. For a complete schedule and ticket costs (from $50 – $350), visit the Events page at www.wgbh.org.
