The Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival is back again in Calgary this Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19! The Grand Tasting Hall will be at the Stampede Park BMO Centre, Halls D & E. The Grand Tasting Hall will feature over 200 exhibitor booths showcasing a wide array of world-class wine, scotch, premium spirits, import and micro-brewed beer along with gourmet culinary creations from local restaurants, hotels, and food purveyors.
As with previous years, Liquor Depot will be featuring an on-site liquor store, where attendees can purchase their favourite finds from the weekend. Liquor Connect will also be demonstrating how their website, LiquorConnect.com, can help find sensational sips after the Festival. Additionally, Sunshine Village will be sponsoring the Grand Prize All-Inclusive Weekend Getaway for two, including two nights accommodation at Sunshine Mountain Lodge, VIP parking, a $100 gift certificate for food and beverages, a couple’s spa treatment and next day lift tickets.
Thanks to Brookline Public Relations, I have two(2) admission tickets to give away for this event. The giveaway tickets are for the Saturday, October 19 afternoon session (12-4 PM). When presented at the door, these tickets will allow for complimentary access into the Grand Tasting Hall. Please note that sampling coupons are not included and all attendees will need to purchase sampling 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 $38), 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address in the appropriate box when telling me about your favourite beverage (not to worry, your email address will not be published), so that I can contact you if your name is drawn.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, October 16, 2013 at 5:59PM 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. The tickets are $30 each online or $35 at the door for the Friday, October 18 Evening Session (5-10pm); $19 each online or $23 at the door for the Saturday, October 19 Afternoon Session (12-4pm); and $31 each online or $36 at the door for the Saturday, October 19 Evening Session (6-10pm) .
