2018 Festival Recap

The Best Weekend Of The Year

We’re still in a food coma from this year’s amazing #AFWFest. We ate gourmet tacos, we tasted wine with Master Sommeliers, we perfected our grilling technique, we danced to DJ Mel…the list goes on and on. This weekend was truly incredible, and we couldn’t have done it without you! Here are a few of our favorite moments.

We couldn’t wait to get back to Auditorium Shores…
