Looking into planning a spring/summer weekend getaway and came across the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival.

If anyone has any thoughts on the event or an opinion as to whether it is worth traveling for, I would appreciate it.
Thanks!

    I went the first year, thanks to a buddy who helped out and had passes. It was a blast. My wife and I also went to one of the dinners leading up to it and had a great time. I didn't go last year due to a trip that had been booked before the dates were even announced.

    It's very much a splurge, as it's insanely expensive. But I was ready to pony up last year. Think tickets either just went on sale or do this week, so I need to see whether I'm going to try to go this year.

      Thanks. Unfortunately, since I started researching the event a few weeks ago, the flights have gone up in px and it doesn't seem worth the travel cost for just a weekend getaway.

      I will keep an eye on it for future years though. I appreciate your feedback.
