From Thursday through Saturday, November 5-7, 2015, one of Big Sur’s most popular culinary events takes place. This festival has been rated by Travel and Leisure as one of their Top Ten.

This festival raises a lot of money for local charities: over $100,000 in its first four years. Founded by Toby-Rowland Jones in 2009 (at that point, Toby had already worked his considerable magic at the Big Sur Jazz Fest, the Masters of Food & Wine, and other festivals), his vision was to hold an outstanding event that “blended fine food and wine with Big Sur character.” This epicurean festival is a one of a kind event every year. Toby and the organization behind this are paying it forward to support the health, character, and vitality of our community. Proceeds support local non-profits involved in health, safety, education, and the arts.

Planning for this year’s Big Sur Food & Wine Festival has been underway for some time but is still unfolding for this year’s offering, so please visit soon for up to the minute information.
