After over a year of remote events, the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is making its big comeback this September.

The in-person festival, which runs from September 10 to 12 in Aspen, Colorado, sold out in less than 48 hours. (If you'd like to join the waitlist, you can sign up here.) The celebration will feature Martha Stewart, Guy Fieri, Carla Hall, Kwame Onwuachi, Brooke Williamson, Kristen Kish, the Top Chef season 18 winner, and more of our favorite food and drink experts.

The Classic will offer a more intimate setting compared to prior years to maintain social distancing and safety protocols. A portion of the proceeds from the 38th annual Classic will benefit the Southern Smoke Foundation, which supports hospitality workers in crisis, and No Kid Hungry, a national campaign committed to ending childhood hunger.

During the pandemic, Food & Wine threw two virtual Classic at Home events. If you missed your chance to buy tickets for the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, we have another virtual Classic at Home scheduled for May 1—you can register here. Our spring classic, hosted by F&W's Justin Chapple, will spotlight some of our favorite chefs and drink professionals with a celebration of cooking demos, wine tastings, and seminars.

If you're unable to join us in Aspen this year, you can save the date for next year's Classic, which will take place from June 17 to 19, 2022.
