Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival 2014

12:00pm to 11:45pm

(AUG. 21-24) For the fourth straight year, the Los Angeles Food & Wine festival, presented by FOOD & WINE magazine, returns to Downtown Los Angeles, one of the country’s premier cultural destinations.  The culinary world’s most recognized names and faces will come together for an epicurean kaleidoscope of festivities that will take over the heart of Los Angeles for a three-night, four-day extravaganza.

Thoughtfully curated, each moment of the festival will bring a one-of-a-kind opportunity for guests to have access to award-winning celebrity chefs paired with music performances from nationally recognizable artists. Guests will savor acclaimed cuisine from over 100 celebrity and world-class chefs, and over 200 wines curated from prestigious wineries.

Locals and visitors alike will experience the cultural diversity of Los Angeles’s culinary scene within this inclusive setting. Additionally, Los Angeles Food & Wine will also feature events taking place throughout greater Los Angeles during the four-day celebration—from Beverly Hills to Santa Monica—as participants have the opportunity to partake in themed lunches and marquee chef collaborations. Tickets will be available for pre-sale to Chase Sapphire card members starting on June 16th through June 18th and to the general public on June 19, 2014. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.lafw.com including full- and half-day packages, as well as specialty ticketed events throughout the city.
