Minnesota Monthly’s 2022 Food & Wine Experience was a savory and engaging event, celebrating chef-driven and mouth-watering food, wine from around the globe, local crafts and makers, artisanal cocktails, and the latest seltzers and beers. The 27th annual event lasted 3 days in March as guests returned to Target Field while interacting with over 110 different exhibitors.

The Food & Wine Experience will return in March 2023 to commemorate excellent drinks and divine food.
