{Food Recap} 2015 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Tuesday 02 June, 2015

This past weekend was my first attendace of the 2015 Atlanta Food and Wine Festival in the city. What a festival it was! This is it’s 5th year anniversary celebrating the best Midtown Atlanta has to offer in food and of course wine selections. When I say this was a festival…this went above my expectations! It was a feast of a festival with LOTS of food and drinks galore. I cant wait to tell you more about this recap of the event.  atlanta-food-and-wine-festival-2015-blog-kiwi-the-beauty-1 The Atlanta Food & Wine Festival is the creation of the dynamic Atlanta entrepreneurial duo, Elizabeth Feichter (right) and Dominique Love (left). The pair first joined forces almost 10 years ago to run Corporate Community Outsourcing, a philanthropic consulting firm created by Love after leaving her post managing The Coca-Cola Company’s corporate giving. This event brought out people in the thousands to enjoy the festivities of Americans favorite pasttime of eating and drinking. Look eating + drinking are my favorite things to do so this was an epic event for me to be in attendance for.

IHG Rewards club made sure to have a fab activiation with Coca-Cola new campaign collaboration of #ShareForever program. This was brought on by brand’s new product Coca Cola Life, in which uses stevia and sugar as sweeteners for the drink to have less sugar and calories. Interesting!

I hope you are happy with the photos I share with you all. Trust me there were way more…an abundance more of food and drinks and the only thing that was really stopping me from showing you all of the items was because it rained (boo). Hard to take picture while it rained, but it definitely didn’t stop the festival show. Once again I was thouroughly impressed with this festival. I never been to anything like it and I just felt like it was one all you can eat and drink party with literally no limits. No worries, I did pace myself…this was an event with a plethora of wine/beer/spirits so things could of gotten a little cray cray. Next year I think I will take Uber (wink wink). It was definitely worth the experience! Thanks again Nikka Shae for inviting me! I can’t believe this was my first time attending, but AFWF will see me again next year for sure!

Have you ever attended an all you can eat + drink festival before? Any festival plans for the summer? kiwithebeauty-signature1
