Huntsville's sixth annual Crush Wine & Food Festival will be held September 25 - 29th. This fall event has sold out for the past 5 years and the growth of Huntsville and the community has lead to an expansion to include whiskey, scotch and bourbon to the lineup. The festival now has a charity component this year with Crush Parkinson's, a fund set up at Huntsville Hospital.
What is Crush Wine & Food Festival
Crush Wine and Food Festival is a five day event from Homegrown Huntsville that offers 150 wine labels for patrons to taste, exclusive chef dinners, whiskey and wild game pairings and more. Two main events take place in Big Spring Park East, the signature wine festival on Saturday and a new addition on Friday evening, the Whiskey and Wild Game Experience. To bookend these events, there is an intimate Champagne Kick-Off Party at the Westin on Wednesday, a Winemaker & Distiller Chef Dinner at The
Mercantile on Thursday and a Champagne Brunch on Sunday at The AC Hotel to cap off the week of events.
