13th Annual Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival Giveaway

The 13th Annual Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival will be here before you know it! Attending a food and wine festival is one of the best ways to try a variety of wines, scotches, and spirits without investing the money buying an entire bottle before you have had the chance to try it which can be a costly venture. As usual, the festival will be held Friday, October 24 through to Saturday, October 25, 2013 at the Shaw Conference Centre.

Ticket prices range from $16-$33, depending on which session you plan on attending (Friday or Saturday evening, or Saturday afternoon), as well as if you buy them online or at the door. In order to taste the food and drinks, you need to buy sampling coupons as well. The number of coupons required range between 1 to 20 coupons, depending on the item, and coupons cost $0.50 each.

Although $0.50 a coupon might seem steep, trying to sample a variety of wines or spirits at a restaurant would cost you significantly more and unrealistic, considering the pours at a restaurant are significantly larger, making it difficult to sample many before you slip under the dinner table…  As well, buying bottles of wine for $20 each or scotch for $40 each, when you’re not sure you’ll like it, is simply just a waste of money.

I would recommend taking a walk around the festival when you first arrive to see what you want to try, and how many coupons it will cost you, so you can figure out how many coupons to purchase. This guarantees you are not left with too many coupons, or have to line up again to get more, wasting precious tasting time.

I have a pairs of tickets to giveaway to one lucky reader! These tickets are good for the Saturday afternoon session, occurring Saturday, October 25 from 12:00pm – 4:00pm. Note that the tickets include entrance only and you will need to purchase sampling coupons yourself (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. This means that all entrants must be 18 years of age, and living in or around the Edmonton area in order to attend the event.

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 Wednesday, October 15, 2014.

  1. So many good choices, what to choose? For beer, I tend to stick to familiar comfort-zone fruity ones. My longtime favourite is Stiegl (Grapefruit) Radler with Fruli (Strawberry) coming a close second.
