For one weekend every year, the Swan and Dolphin Resorts host the Food and Wine Classic. Think of it as a miniature version of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, but you don’t need to enter a theme park!

This year, the event takes place on November 10 and 11 with events taking place between 5:30 pm and 9:00 each day. The event is open to the public, so even if you are not staying at the Swan or Dolphin you are still able to purchase tickets.
