Disclosure: I will be attending the Earth Day Food and Wine Festival. All Opinions are my Own, and I believe in this festival and what it stands for.
Earth Day is this weekend! Celebrations will happening all across California, but, in Paso Robles, the 10th annual Earth Day Food and Wine Festival will be taking place.
For many, food and wine may not come first to mind when participating in Earth Day Festivities, however, that is HOW this festival truly began. For a decade, Earth Day Food & Wine’s annual wine country throw-down spotlights how sustainably produced foods and wines are both delicious and environmentally responsible.
And there’s nothing like Earth Day to bring up that reminder of, “where does our food come from?” Or how it is taken care of.
Earth Day Food & Wine was the first event to provide an opportunity for attendees to connect directly with local farmers, winemakers, and chefs in this unique format. The casual, low-key atmosphere has set this event apart from the start – and now 10 years later, the event has stayed true to its mission – sharing sustainable wine and food with hungry eaters and caring connoisseurs. Farmers, food purveyors, winemakers and chefs who are passionate about sustainability come together in a casual atmosphere where attendees can relax anywhere from VIP tables to a picnic blanket on the grass
This year counts as their 10th Year Celebrating the Event, and is sure to be the best yet. In addition to a growing list of top chefs, farmers, food purveyors, wineries and brewers, Earth Day Food & Wine will feature a Tesla auto exhibition, the Guerrilla Gardening Club, a SIP Pop-Up Bar where guests can enjoy SIP Certified wines, the KRUSH radio Beer Garden, and so much more. However, the event doesn’t just celebrate sustainability, but also the next generation of passionate people. Event proceeds benefit the Vineyard Team’s Spanish education programs and scholarships for relatives of farmworkers.
