Auburn's inaugural Food and Wine Festival will be held on June 22, 2019, at Twenty-One Acres. The event, benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Lee County, is sure to be one to remember!

The Food & Wine Festival is focused on connecting the community through food, wine, and fellowship in hopes to raise awareness, funds, and to encourage the campaign of The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Lee County.

The festival is in part, under the direction of local chef and caterer, Christine Healey. Christine, the owner of Christine's Unlimited, has been a well-known chef in the Auburn-Opelika area for over 20 years. With her guidance, the festival has curated a desirable list of participants that rivals larger festivals. 

With 30 tasting tables and 20 restaurants at the event, the Food and Wine Festival will have a multitude of culinary opportunities for everyone to experience. Many local restaurants will be present at the festival, including Bow & Arrow, Acre, Lucy's, Amsterdam CafeThe Hound, and The Depot.

Twenty-One Acres is located at 5505 Wire Road in Auburn. Driving into Twenty-One Acres, a scenic driveway will lead you to to a beautiful venue that features a spectacular backyard with a sparkling pool, poolside bar, and an open, green field. No need to fear the heat! Twenty-One Acres has a large covered pavilion with fans. The venue will add event tents adjacent to the pavilion to accommodate the entertainment and tables.
