A couple years ago I remember fondly winning one of the first food-related blog contests I’ve ever entered, given away by none other than my food pal Chris (Eating is the Hard Part). The tickets were for the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival (click here to read my past review). Now I’ve come full circle – and am excited to give away tickets to you wonderful readers to this year’s 12th Annual Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival!

I’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away – so I will be selecting two winners. Yay! The tickets get you entry into the Grand Tasting Hall (retail value at the door per ticket: $21) but you will still need to buy sampling coupons (50 cents each) when you get there.

From the festival organizers:

The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival is back for two days of indulgence, offering a little something for everyone. The Grand Tasting Hall will be bustling with more food and beverage exhibitors than ever before, leaving taste buds seduced and craving more. The Festival offers the opportunity to sample an extensive variety of world-class wine, scotch, premium spirits, import and micro-brewed beer along with gourmet culinary creations from local restaurants, hotels and food purveyors.


How to win your way into the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival!

Pair of tickets for the Saturday, October 26, 2013 Afternoon (12-4 p.m.) Session

Please note that all attendees will need to purchase sampling coupons (50 cents each) to use in exchange for samples of food, wine and other beverages.

Good luck! :)



  1. I’d try the TNT roll from Japonais Bistro! Haven’t been yet but have heard good things about the restaurant.

  2. Omg I love cheese!! I’m excited to try all the cheese samples especially cheese infused pretzel Bites!!! :)

  3. I am looking forward to the prime rib sliders from the keg! Also it is my gf and i anniversary so it would be an awesome date activity to do!!

  4. I’m most looking forward to the duck dishes! Duck if my favourite so I can’t decide between the smoked duck salad and the curried croquettes. And for dessert – the chili chocolate mousse.
