Known for its intimacy, euphoria Food, Wine, and Music presented by Lexus is back for its 15th serving. This highly anticipated four-day festival in the thriving city of Greenville, SC, includes exclusive tasting events, intimate musical experiences, cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, as well as multi-course dinners and live music concerts. Dedicated to excellence, the nonprofit festival features domestic and international wines, Michelin-starred chefs, sommeliers and renowned singer and songwriters.

Select tickets for the festival, set for September 17-20, 2020, are currently on sale. Some of the schedule and talent line-up have been announced, with plans to release more next month. The festival is likely to look a little different this year, but fully intends to continue with as many festivities as possible, once it is safe to do so.

Chef Steven Devereaux Greene returns to Greenville for a guest chef dinner, while several local restaurants will also host chefs for seated, multi-course lunches and dinners. euphoria classroom topics will cover everything from beer and wine to an intimate chef’s table and even a hands-on biscuit-making class, courtesy of Chadwick Boyd and Top Chef alum Carla Hall.

It wouldn’t be euphoria weekend without a handful of Michelin-starred chefs. Greenville’s Chef Shawn Kelly is set to host a guest chef at Fork & Plough, as is Chef Michael Kramer at Jianna. On Saturday night, Teague Moriarty (San Francisco), Emma Bengtsson (NYC), and Kyle Connaughton (Healdsburg, CA) will collaborate for Seeing Stars: A Michelin-starred Dinner.

Founded in 2006, the festival has made a significant impact on Greenville’s hospitality & tourism industries, as well as its economic development and quality of life. euphoria has also funded projects for more than 40 local charities that help children, provide education through music or performing arts, and work to eliminate hunger. The festival is more determined than ever to stay focused on their mission: to shine a spotlight on Greenville’s thriving culinary scene, while also raising money to give back to the community.

The current schedule for euphoria 2020 presented by Lexus is available online, and will be updated as more events are announced.
