Yes. The FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen 2021 will take place September 10 – 12, 2021. Next year’s Classic will mark the 38th FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.

We moved the date to allow extra time for careful planning given the evolving nature of the pandemic. The safety and well-being of everyone involved is our top priority.

Passes will go on sale in April 2021. Pricing and exact dates are to be determined, but please check back frequently for updates.

We have many opportunities available at the Classic based on advertising in FOOD & WINE magazine, including sampling product for up to 5,000 attendees in the Grand Tasting Pavilion throughout the weekend, custom event integration, and, at the highest level, sponsorship of the Classic. For brands who do not do any national advertising, we offer the opportunity to apply for and purchase a select number of remaining exhibitor tables in the Grand Tasting Pavilion. Exhibitor applications will be available starting April 2021. For more details, please contact

We’ll be implementing new protocols and guidelines to help ensure the safety of everyone involved and we will be communicating those details once they are final in advance of the event. While adjustments will likely be made in terms of size and execution, we expect to bring back many of the signature experiences that the Classic is known for, such as the Grand Tasting Pavilion, Wine Pairing and Tasting Events, and Cooking Demonstrations. We will also be adding virtual experiences to expand upon what’s happening on the ground.
