Established in 2008, the Seattle Wine and Food Experience (SWFE) is the city’s premier culinary showcase. Seattle magazine acquired the Seattle Wine and Food Experience in 2017 with the goal of taking a beloved local event and continuing to elevate it to reflect the food and beverage coverage our readers love.

The 12th annual Seattle Wine and Food Experience takes place the weekend of February 20-22, 2020. Three distinct events showcase the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

We kick off with Comfort, a smorgasbord of the ultimate feel-good foods + crafty brews. Treat yourself to mac & cheese, fried chicken, burgers, sweets, beer, cider, and more. Then, dress to impress on Friday at our signature event – Pop! Bubbles + Seafood – featuring the Pacific Northwest’s bounty of seafood and the chance to sample a variety of bubbles and wines. Finally, round out the weekend on Saturday at the Grand Tasting; a deluxe showcase for wine, beverage, food and lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest. Exciting event attractions include artisan food producers, sensory experiences, education and more.
