Experience Three Days of Deliciousiness with The Los Angeles Wine & Food Festival in Santa Monica from March 1st-3rd, 2024.

From IMG, the Endeavor-owned global events leader behind Taste of London, Taste of Paris, Frieze, and New York Fashion Week: The Shows, comes Los Angeles Wine & Food Festival, a brand new event bringing outstanding chefs together to celebrate LA’s vibrant food, art and cultural scene.  

The inaugural three-day event takes place March 1st through March 3rd, 2024 (7:30pm – 10pm on Friday and Saturday; 12:30pm-3pm on Sunday) at the Santa Monica Pier, in conjunction with Frieze Week Los Angeles (February 29th to March 3rd at Santa Monica airport). Each day will feature walkaround tastings from a diverse group of beloved local restaurants like Holbox, Bé Ù, Chifa, Camphor, Pizzana, and Bridgetown Roti, to name a few, as well as top headlining talent.

There will also be additional programming such as a line-up of all female local DJs, DJ Millie, DJ Orange Calderon, and DJs Mango + Ginger, creating a party-like atmosphere, as well as themed rooms throughout the space for attendees to explore. (More detail on themed rooms below.)

The festival is dedicated to highlighting female-owned restaurants in LA, thanks to official nonprofit partner Regarding Her (RE:Her), a national nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the growth of women entrepreneurs and leaders in food and beverage.  



The venue will be transformed to include themed areas including:  

  • Sweets Room Designed as a whimsical sweet shop, this space includes desserts from top talent including an installation from Ananas Ananas, a food-art studio from Verónica Gonzalez and Elena Petrossian, a bar, and an irresistible supersized candy display
  • Punk Rock Room – Featuring local graffiti artist, John P., painting a live mural that will be completed by the end of the festival, a punk rock-themed bar, and bites from both local and headlining chefs.  
  • Santa Monica and Skate Park Room – Embracing the essence of Santa Monica and Venice Beach, the room will pay homage to California’s most iconic beachfront. 
  • Artist Plate Project –  In connection with Frieze Los Angeles, the Artist Plate Project features 50 limited-edition plates designed by world-renowned artists, including Virgil Abloh dessert plates. All proceeds from the plates will benefit the charity. View photos of the plates here.
