Autumn Food and Wine Festival at Northstar

This year’s 33rd annual Autumn Food and Wine Festival takes place September 7-9 at Northstar California Resort in Truckee.  The event combines the best of culinary innovation with North Lake Tahoe’s Natural Backdrop.

Unlike other culinary festivals, this one focuses on “experiential dining,” from progressive picnics through the Toiyabe Forest to vertical mountainside wine tastings up Northstar’s tallest peak.

The three-day event includes food & wine pairing competitions, chef showdowns, educational seminars, launch parties and the fan favorite “Grand Tasting” where over 25 chefs compete for the perfectly paired dish.
