Six Michelin-starred chefs, over 40 events, over 12 guest chef dinners and Tyler Florence. There is a lot to do in the four days of euphoria.
The premier food, wine and music festival celebrates its 17th year Sept. 15 – 18, and after two years of scaled back festivals, this year’s promises to present with a bang.
Over the years, euphoria has come to be known for a world-class culinary experience but also a uniquely intimate one, that allows attendees and guest chefs to interact directly.
Tickets for the events go on sale Thursday, April 28, capped off by Spring Fest, a four-day mini-euphoria experience that launched last year. It is one of the multiple events the festival holds throughout the year.
“This little festival that started out as a day and a half 17 year ago is now ongoing almost annually,” said Carl Sobocinski, founder of Table 301 Restaurant Group, and one of the founders of euphoria.”
This year’s festival will be one of the largest, with more events, more chefs and more delectable bites.
