Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival

On October 16th and 17th, wine and food lovers were invited to indulge at the 18th annual Calgary Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival! The Stampede Park BMO Centre hosted Calgary's 2015 Grand Tasting Hall, with over 200 exhibitor booths featuring the latest adult beverage products and local menu items. Guests enjoyed a distinguished collection of wines from around the globe, along with premium spirits, single malt and blended scotches, ports, specialty liqueurs, and import and micro-brewed beers. Guests paired beverages with a delicious selection of nibbles from local restaurants, hotels and food purveyors. Samples ranged from value based to ultra-exclusive, offering something for everyone! The Grand Tasting Hall offered a unique opportunity to explore new products, interact with experts and discover exciting new flavours.

In addition, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival team will be donating 24 hours of volunteer time at the Calgary Food Bank.

Front of the Line ticket holders also helped give back – for every Front of the Line ticket sold, a meal was donated via Mealshare. $5,500 was raised for Mealshare, and 2,941 meals were donated to people in need!
