Montclair Food and Wine Festival 2016


Looking for the best food and drinks North Jersey has to offer? Clear your calendar – and your stomach - for July 9.

BBQ, Bourbon, and Biergarten. These three B’s are the crux of the fourth annual Montclair Food and Wine Festival, and they’re guaranteed to lead to another “B”: bliss.

From 6-10pm on July 9, 2016, the summer event will take over the Montclair Art Museum featuring beer, bourbon, and culinary delights from local artisanal and national brands. Among the myriad of participating breweries, distilleries, and restaurants is the Ninety Acres Culinary Center of Somerset County. Part of the Natirar Estate, Ninety Acres’ menu boasts the freshest ingredients from their Certified Naturally Grown farm and that of its fellow NJ farms.

The grill-savvy will participate in a friendly BBQ competition judged by notable foodies like beer and food writer, John Holl; restaurateur and Food Network judge, Ed Schoenfeld; and food blogger and Kansas City Barbecue Society Certified Judge, Veronique Deblois.

In addition to finger-licking good food, the evening will include live music provided by festival sponsor, The Wellmont Theater. The headliner is the Rockin 45’s.

Tickets for the Montclair Food and Wine Festival can be purchased at: General admission: $85 pp (includes access to food, beer and spirits tasting, music and BBQ competition, raffles and silent auction); VIP admission: $120 pp (includes premium craft beer and spirits tasting).
