Wine & Dine
Imagine a dining event in the heart of Cherry Creek North with no disruptions: no car traffic, no pedestrian traffic – only amazed and envious looks from onlookers. Currently in its 12th year, Cherry Creek North Food & Wine is welcoming guests back this August to celebrate and enjoy the diverse and sophisticated tastes of Cherry Creek North restaurants. This staple event, now expanded to four days, offers a lineup of intimate dining experiences, small bites, seminars and demos each day, which all build up to the Grand Tasting sessions on Fillmore Plaza. The event has been recrafted to highlight the extensive culinary options in the area and connect diners directly with chefs and mixologists to explore and savor their unique creations. New this year, a percentage of proceeds from the event will benefit Food For Thought Denver and their mission to fight childhood hunger in the Denver Community. Cherry Creek North Food & Wine kicks off Wednesday, August 11, and continues through Saturday, August 14, at various locations throughout the district.
