When it launched back in 2005, euphoria helped put Greenville on the culinary map with a celebration of food, wine, and live music. Year after year, the event keeps getting better, often selling out as soon as tickets become available. And this year is no exception.

While you can expect favorites like exclusive tastings, cooking demos, sommelier-led workshops, and Michelin-starred chef dinners, there are a few exciting new experiences planned over the four-day fest, held Sept. 16 through 19. Here are just a few.
