The three-day epicurean Festival is somewhat like a Coachella for culinary enthusiasts, oenophiles and cerevisaphiles alike—only with a more sartorially and socially acceptable dress code.
The Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival celebrates some of Newport Beach’s and its surrounding cities’ best cuisine while also featuring nationally renowned chefs, master sommeliers, spirits experts and more.
