Beaufort Wine & Food Weekend
Talent from around the world descends on Beaufort as guest chefs are paired up with some of the Crystal Coast’s best restaurants for an unforgettable experience – All in the name of charity!

Beaufort Wine and Food’s single largest event is the Vin de Mer Epicurean Village! Guests are immersed in a controlled chaos where 300 wine labels and dozens of local and regional restaurants come together in perfect harmony. Cooking demonstrations take place throughout the event.

Beaufort’s Brewin’ Craft Beer Festival

Partnering with regional distributors and over two dozen breweries from across the state and beyond, Beaufort Wine & Food offers a stellar line up of events including a pub crawl, beer seminars, beer luncheons and dinners. In 2018, the two-day festival was streamlined to two events – Beaufort’s Brewin’ Pub Crawl and Beer, Bubbles and BBQ due to hurricane Florence.
