The FEAST Local Foods Network invites craft wine, cider, and beer makers to join us for FEAST!, November 5th, 2022 at the Mayo Convention Center, Rochester, MN. There is no cost to participate.

Wine and Cider sales are allowed! Thanks to a Minnesota Wine Festival statute, vendors who are licensed as Farm Wineries are permitted to make retail sales of bottles at the event. Attendees are permitted to purchase up to 6 bottles of wine at the festival. We ask vendors to limit their offerings to six varieties per company.

Stipend for breweries: because breweries are not covered by the above statute, breweries will receive a small stipend to help offset costs of attendance. We will send you the brewery stipend form after the event. Contact elena@local-feast.org for more information.
