The 14th Annual Food & Wine Festival will take place in Cape May from September 18th to September 26th.  This is a great opportunity for food and wine lovers.  You’ll have nine days to indulge in food, wine, and a variety of culinary delights.

Called a “Top 100 Event in North America” by the American Bus Association, the Cape May Food & Wine Festival, presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC), offers a calendar full of events.

New this year is the Harvest Wine Festival, a two-day outdoor food and wine extravaganza to be held at the Cape May Winery in North Cape May from 12 noon to 5 pm on Saturday, September 18th and Sunday, September 19th.  Food and craft vendors will sell their products and local wineries will offer samples. There will also be the Chef’s Cook-off on Sunday, September 19th at 1:30 pm, where local chefs will face each other in a test of talent, skill and speed.  Both days will feature live music, mini winery tours, lectures, demonstrations and fun activities for the kids.  Free trolley shuttles will take festival-goers from the Washington Street Mall Information Booth to the winery.  Admission is $25, including wine tastings.

In addition to the Harvest Wine Festival, you’ll find lots of other food and wine related events, such as:

  • A Beer Tasting Dinner at Aleathea’s Restaurant at the Inn of Cape May
  • A guided tour of Fisherman’s Wharf at the Lobster House
