Adventures in Flavor at the Gourmet Toronto Food & Wine Festival

The Year’s Finest Toronto Food & Wine Festival



21st Annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo



Metro Toronto Convention Centre

255 Front Street West



November 19th-22nd



Single-Day – $20-$50

Four-Day VIP – $85


Life has truly never tasted so good as at this four-day tour of the finest cuisine and drinks in the world. The 21st Annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo in Toronto brings over 1,500 of the very best beers, wines and spirits from across the globe together in one place. Of course, premiere drinks are only half the show’s appeal, as renowned chefs serve international fare, both traditional and wildly inventive. Many of these visionary culinary artists even offer complimentary cooking demonstrations, so you can recreate the blissful bites yourself at home. Altogether, upwards of 45,000 people are expected to attend this year’s expo, less than ten minutes from our hotel, so get your tickets today!


Sample Tickets Are Your Passport to Tastings

While some food, beer, wine, cocktail tastes a free, many of the best come at a nominal price. Sample Tickets are only $1 apiece, with most items averaging 1-6 to try. To make the best of the fest, plan on buying $40+ worth.


What’s Included with Admission?

Perhaps the most anticipated event is the VIP Preview Evening ($45; 6-10 pm, November 19th), with exclusive reserve wines and rare vintages, as well as a much smaller crowd to navigate as you taste your way through the world of flavors available. Same as every other day of the festival, your admission grants access to the show’s hottest attractions, including:

  • 140,000 sq-ft of Exhibits & Vendors
  • Food & Wine Educational Seminars
  • Continuous Gourmet Cooking Demonstrations
  • Live Entertainment (Music, Dance, & Body Painting)
  • Mott’s 2015 Best Caesar in Town National Competition (Sunday)
