While we have moved past 2020, we have not moved past COVID-19, and so organizers of some of the Upstate’s most celebrated food events are planning and finessing to bring their experiences to life.
Here’s what you can expect from four events this year.
One note, we did not forget about Fall for Greenville, but organizers don’t have information just yet. Stay tuned for details about this year’s festival to come this summer.
Sept. 16 – 19
Last year, organizers went back and forth about whether to hold a festival at all. They did, and they took some lessons from the experience that will inform this year’s event.
First off, there are more opportunities for intimate experiences. Events will remain smaller and there are more classrooms and tastings that clock in around 30 or so people.
There will be not one, not two, but three Michelin dinners, featuring seven Michelin starred chefs, the most ever to attend euphoria, perhaps the most ever to be at one event in South Carolina.
Notable this year is that one of those starred chef dinners will be at Sushi restaurant. Sushi Yama in Travelers Rest will host a dinner Thursday, Sept. 16.
Attendees can expect safety precautions, including assigned seating at certain events, distancing, hand sanitizing and washing stations. Masks will also be strongly urged.
Tickets range from $45 to $400; Purchase them at www.euphoriagreenville.com.
