Food and Wine Festival

The 2010 wine and food festival was a tasty success and now we know it was an economic success as well. According to an economic impact study by the College of Charleston’s Office of Tourism…the 2010 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival…. more than doubled its economic impact on the Charleston area despite the downturn in the economy.  The total impact to the Charleston area economy …..rose from nearly two and a half million dollars in 2009…to just over five million dollars this year.
