Every year, Food & Wine heads to Colorado for the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, a weekend full of cooking demos, wine tastings, and panel discussions with world-class chefs and industry experts. During last year’s event, NBA legend Dwyane Wade poured his favorite wines in the Grand Tasting tent and Martha Stewart showed us how to make a summer clambake. Tickets are now officially on sale for the 38th annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, which takes place June 19 through June 21, 2020.

“The Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is the most important weekend of the year for our team and our culinary community, and we’re thrilled to bring the brand to life and share the best of what’s new and next in food and drink with 5,000 passionate fans,” Food & Wine Editor-in-Chief Hunter Lewis said. “As always, we’re assembling the country’s most talented chefs, winemakers, and tastemakers in the gorgeous mountains of Aspen, and that alchemy of people and place add up to a world-class event unlike anything else.”
