If you have tickets — or were thinking about buying tickets — to the inaugural Columbia Food and Wine Festival, take notice: Because the forecast calls for severe thunderstorms on Sunday, the festival will move from Five Points to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center at 1101 Lincoln St.
This first-ever event in Columbia features chefs from some of the city's best restaurants serving samples of their cuisine, hosting cooking demonstrations and interacting with the public.
Local craft beer will be highlighted and works of local artists will be on display.
Festival time is 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Tickets are still available for the event: Sneak Peek tickets, at $85 per person with advance sales only, get you in an hour before General Admission tickets, which are $65 per person in advance and $75 per person at the door. No children, infants, or pets will be admitted, and there is a dress code of smart-casual.
