The Columbia Food and Wine Festival was established in 2018 through a collaboration between Free Times and the Five Points Foundation with the goal of showcasing the Midlands’ growing culinary scene.
The 2021 Columbia Food and Wine Festival will take place over a four-day period – May 20-23, 2021.
Due to the nature of the festival, we do not permit children or pets for the safety of all parties at CFWF events.
Hotel Trundle, located in the heart of downtown Columbia, is the official hotel of the 2021 Columbia Food and Wine Festival. Learn more here.
The Columbia Food and Wine Festival will have photographers documenting the event throughout the weekend that will be made available on online and on social media.
