Hole Food Rescue is one of the beneficiaries this year of the Jackson Hole Food & Wine Festival, a new foodie-focused non-profit that has taken on both the evolution of Jackson Hole’s beloved annual wine auction, as well as provided another locus point for Jackson Hole’s chefs, sommeliers, restaurateurs, and local locavores to break bread and fundraising records.
With a directors’ board curated from Jackson Hole’s top culinary movers and shakers, the Festival represents the next step in the Jackson Hole dining story. Their goal is simple: producing an intimate and unique food and beverage festival that highlights our exceptional valley while giving back to our community. While residents’ first opportunity to interact with the Festival will be its flagship summer event in June, the goal is for Jackson Hole Food & Wine Festival to become a mainstay, resource, and conversation starter for ongoing culinary education.
“I am excited to be a part of creating a culinary festival that hosts events throughout the year,” says Haynes Poe, the Associate Director of JHFW and a former producer of the Jackson Hole Wine Auction. “Our goal is to create a variety of experiences at different price points that include demos, food and beverage seminars, pop-up dinners, tastings, educational sessions, and more.”
The goal is to reach a vast audience at different price points—from the splashy champagne cocktail soiree to the barefoot brew sesh.
