Happening over three weekends from Oct. 20 through Nov. 6, festivities marking the 12th annual event will take place on three islands: Maui, Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii. They range from a food and wine dinner at the Halekulani hotel on Oahu to a barbecue and bourbon tasting at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii.
"The past two years has impacted the food industry especially hard," shared Hawaii Food & Wine Festival CEO Denise Yamaguchi. "This year, the festival is dedicated to the resiliency of our collective industries -- from farmers and fishermen to chefs, restaurant owners, winemakers and more -- and celebrates the spirit of innovation and adaptation in light of extraordinary circumstances."
Tickets are available now, and two events are already sold out.
