12th Annual Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival Giveaway


It’s that time of year again when the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival rolls into town. This year is their 12th year, offering everyone a chance to try a variety of wines, spirits, scotches, beers, and food from a variety of local restaurants over a 2 day period starting Friday, October 25 through to Saturday, October 26, 2013 at the Shaw Conference Centre.

Although I attended a media preview about two years ago and at the time wasn’t too impressed, I’m hoping that things have changed over the years. My biggest problem with the show at the time was the lack of cohesion between food and beverage offerings, I think asking a restaurant to prepare food samples that would go well with a particular wine or spirit would have been more beneficial than randomly preparing whatever they felt like. Also, the layout was a bit haphazard, the lack in consistency of tasting sizes as some foods and beverages were larger than others, as well the lack of menu. If the festival provided a menu listing the food and beverage samples available, and the number of coupons required, it would make it easier to plan how many tickets to buy instead of having to walk through the entire exhibit hall to see what there was and how many tickets each item was in order to figure out how many tickets we would need to purchase.

Although I won’t be able to see for myself how the festival is this year, I have 2 pairs of tickets to giveaway to 2 lucky readers! These tickets are good for the Saturday afternoon session, occurring Saturday, October 26 from 12:00pm – 4:00pm. Note that the tickets include entrance only and you will need to purchase sampling coupons (they cost $0.50 each) in order to get food, wine and other beverages from each booth. Note that this is an adult only event (ie. 18 years or older) and minors are not permitted to attend.

There are a few ways you can enter this giveaway! Just check out the Rafflecopter widget below and choose an option or all 5! There are some options that will allow you to enter once per day! Contest closes on Tuesday, October 22, 2013.
