The 2020 Atlanta Food and Wine Festival goes virtual in September, with nine days of socially distanced dinners and brunch events and online seminars. The annual food festival, which typically takes place over four days in Midtown at the beginning of June, was canceled earlier this summer due to the ongoing health crisis.

At present, organizers expect the 2021 Atlanta Food and Wine Festival to take place as planned next spring.

This year’s nine-day virtual festival kicks off on Thursday, September 10, and includes 13 chef-led classes via Zoom priced at $10 per person, along with 11 dinners, two lunches, and a brunch to be held at Atlanta restaurants like Aziza, Lazy Betty, Twisted Soul Cookhouse and Pours, The Iberian Pig, and Char Korean Bar and Grill.

All in-person events range from $95 to $200 per person and feature limited seating. Attendees are required to wear masks upon entry to an event, but festival organizers are leaving it up to individuals to decide if they wish to continue wearing a mask at their table while not eating or drinking. Tables will be spaced at least six feet apart during each meal.

Note: 100 percent of the proceeds from virtual classes goes to participating chefs, with 70 percent of the proceeds from in-person events going to participating restaurants.
