A Culinary Circus of Desserts, Wine, Beer, Spirits, Music, & Fun in Asheville

 

2015

 

This year’s SWEET will prove to be a decadent evening of desserts, sparkling wines, wine, beer, spirits and shopping...to name a few of our favorite things. Chocolates, cakes, tarts, pastries and more—it doesn’t get any sweeter than this.

 

SWEET is the place-to-be event on Friday evening from 8 to 10 pm, before the GRAND TASTING on Saturday. Evening attire or just jeans, enjoy dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in Asheville, but save room for an evening of toothsome confections and sips at the historic Grove Arcade in downtown. Local bakers, chocolatiers, pâtissiers, wine vendors, brewers and distillers will line the corridors of this architectural wonder. The shops of the Grove Arcade will stay open late, giving you the opportunity to shop for handmade crafts, jewelry, furnishings, and more while you indulge. 

 

Enjoy the music, the food, and the atmosphere that takes you back to a fun time in our city.  Create a new vibrant tone as you explore all that is delectable and delightful at the 2015 SWEET event, held on the second evening of the Asheville Wine & Food Festival. 

 


2014 SWEET in Review

 

We want to give a wonderful salute to the jazz of "One Leg Up" who swayed over 500 participants in this Friday night event!!!

 

Chocolates, cakes, tarts, pastries and more—it doesn’t get any sweeter than this. Well, maybe if you sip it all down with glasses of sparkling wine, beer, and spirits while swaying to the jazz of "One Leg Up".
