HAWAII FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Hawaii Food & Wine Festival is the premier culinary destination event in the Pacific.
A three-weekend epicurean experience that spans three islands each fall, the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival (HFWF) is the largest food festival in Hawaii. Co-founded by two of Hawaii’s own James Beard Award-winning chefs—Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong—the Festival showcases Hawaii’s rich agricultural diversity and homegrown culinary talent through world-class culinary experiences.
Each year, more than 150 internationally renowned master chefs, culinary personalities, sommeliers, mixologists, and wine and spirit producers are invited to participate in roughly 20 events, from grand tastings and wine dinners to kids cooking classes, wine seminars and more. Unlike other food festivals across the country, HFWF challenges participating chefs to use at least one locally grown, raised or caught ingredient in their dish, connecting Hawaii’s farmers, ranchers and fishermen to thousands of attendees each year. As a program of the nonprofit, Hawaii Ag and Culinary Alliance, HFWF has donated more than $3.2 million to community and aina-based organizations that support sustainability, culinary and agricultural education, and cultural programs in Hawaii since 2011.
