The Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival is back again in Banff this Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11! As with previous years, the Grand Tasting Hall will be at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel – Conference Centre. The Grand Tasting Hall will feature food samples from some of the best restaurants and eateries in Banff including The Bison Restaurant & Terrace, Rimrock Resort Hotel, Sunshine Mountain Lodge, Balkan – The Greek Restaurant, Bear Hill Brewing Company, and many more. There will also be a wide array of wine, scotch, beer and other libations available to be paired with these delicious food samples. I’ve only ever been to the Calgary event but from the looks of it, this one is really popular too as the Saturday evening session is already sold out!
Thanks to Brookline Public Relations, I have two(2) admission tickets to give away for this event. The giveaway tickets are for the Saturday, May 11 afternoon session (2-5 PM). When presented at the door, these tickets will allow for complimentary access into the Grand Tasting Hall at the Banff Springs Hotel. Please note that tasting coupons are not included and all attendees will need to purchase tasting coupons separately at a cost of $0.50 cents each to use for obtaining food, wine and other beverage samples. These admission tickets are not transferable to any other session. This is an adult only event. All attendees must be 18 years or older. Minors (including infants) are not permitted to attend.
To enter into this draw for the Wine Festival tickets (Prize worth $54-$64), simply leave a comment in the section below telling me “What is your favourite wine, beer or cocktail drink?”. You will need to put a valid email address in the appropriate box when telling me about your favourite beverage (not to worry, your email address will not be published), so that I can contact you if your name is drawn. This giveaway contest will close on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 11:59PM MST. I will hold a random draw and one winner will be chosen. I will contact the winner via e-mail that evening as well as post the name of the winner here.
If you need to purchase additional admission tickets, they are still available for the Friday, May 10 Evening Session (7-10 pm) and Saturday, May 11 Afternoon Session ( 2-5 pm). The tickets are $27 each online, or $32 at the door. As I mentioned previously, the sampling coupons are $0.50 each and can be purchased (by cash only) at the Grand Tasting Hall. The samples can range from 1 to 20 or more coupons, depending on the item.
