A weekend of eating and drinking in Banff

The Bow Valley’s most well-known wine and food event is coming back to the the Rockies this weekend — the Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival takes place May 30 and 31 in the conference centre of the Banff Springs Hotel.

Guests mix and mingle while they nibble and sip one of the widest arrays of local and international beers scotch vodka rum and tequila along with small plates from Banff and area eateries including The Bison Restaurant & Terrace The Rimrock Resort Hotel Sunshine Mountain Lodge Balkan the Greek Restaurant and Valbella Gourmet Foods.

The festival is a unique event in stunning surroundings — and a great way to catch up on our almost-local food scene within walking distance (or a short cab ride) back to your hotel room bed.

Tickets are available for the Friday evening and Saturday afternoon sessions — Saturday evening is sold out. Attendees can also download the Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival free mobile app to keep track of tasting notes and bookmark their favourite eats and drinks.
