The 20th annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo will welcome close to 50,000 visitors from around the globe to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from November 20-23, 2014. Guests will be able to sample from more than 1,800 fine wines, beers and spirits alongside an international smorgasbord of gourmet cuisine. With a setting that encompasses the style and sophistication of a cocktail party, the Expo combines unprecedented educational opportunities and compelling feature attraction areas.
Highlights for the 20th anniversary celebration include the return of our Tutored Tastings classes featuring perfectly cellared vintage wines, awaiting their uncorking, The Food Network Chef Stage where top local talents and celebrity guests demonstrate tricks of the trade as they prepare show stopping signature dishes and The Trend Central Stage’s interactive tastings sessions of cutting-edge wine, beer and spirits. Our enhanced and expanded Spiritology Pavilion puts passionate bartenders in the heart of the action to showcase the latest from Toronto’s exciting cocktail scene, while the #VIP VINES InterVin Pavilion allows wine lovers the opportunity to sip exquisite wines from around the world in an intimate environment. Tying it all together, the Central Entertainment Area is the pulsating heart of the show, featuring eye-catching décor and dazzling entertainers throughout the four-day expo.
This year’s Expo will celebrate 20 years of bringing foodies, gastronomes, oenophiles and avid cocktail enthusiasts together to experience the very best food and drink from around the world. Having cemented our reputation as a leading food and beverage event in Canada, we look forward to kicking off the next decade in style.
