Three Days of Deliciousness at the Los Angeles Wine & Food Festival in Santa Monica | March 1 – 3

Get ready, my fellow epicureans! We’re diving headfirst into the Los Angeles Wine & Food Festival (LAWFF), where the extraordinary fusion of flavors meets the chaotic harmony of art, all against the dazzling backdrop of the Santa Monica Pier from March 1st to 3rd, 2024. Mark your calendars, clear your schedules, and prepare your palates for a weekend of sensory delights of the most exquisite kind.

LAWFF recently a preview party at the beautiful Neuehouse in Venice Beach. The Hollywood Home was more than happy to be invited and if that event is any indication of what’s to come at the festival we’re all in for a decadent three days of deliciousness at the main event.

And let me be the first to tell you, this isn’t your standard food and wine affair; it’s a full-on celebration of the wild, the weird, and the wonderful in food – California style. It’s also a celebration of the eclectic tapestry of California’s locales, the vibrant personalities of our best chefs, and the bounty of our amazing produce, all intertwined with a sprinkle of art, entertainment, and giving back.

Let’s delve into the soul of the festival – the remarkable lineup of chefs. We’re talking 90 culinary maestros, with 16 headliners ready to craft an unparalleled dining experience. But here’s the kicker – LAWFF is putting a spotlight on the fantastic female-owned restaurants in LA, in collaboration with their partners at Regarding Her (RE:Her), a non-profit dedicated to uplifting women in the food and beverage industry. I’m always saluting the unsung heroines of the kitchen, so this particular festival holds a special place in my heart.

And hold onto your knives because LAWFF is benefitting not one but two incredible L0s Angeles non-profits. The second? They’re proudly backing The Artist Plate Project, a charitable initiative supporting the Coalition for the Homeless. In connection with Frieze Los Angeles, The Artist Plate Project, an activation founded by Michelle Hellman, will feature at the event following its sold-out iteration at Frieze New York 2023 fifty limited-edition plates designed by world-renowned artists, including Virgil Abloh, Rashid Johnson, Takashi Murakami, and Amy Sherald. They will be on display and available for attendees to purchase. Proceeds will directly benefit the organization, and provide food, crisis services, housing, and other critical aid to thousands of people experiencing homelessness and instability.

Let’s dissect the juicy details of what awaits you at LAWFF below, including all the chefs, restaurants, DJs, and artists set for this amazing beachside weekend of wine and wonderful food:
