Wine, Food & Beer Showcase

Friday, March 1, 2019

Started in 1985, this annual food and beverage event is the oldest in the area and has become a yearly favorite for foodies, oenophiles and beer enthusiasts alike! Featuring over 40 of the finest restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries in the area, the Wine, Food & Beer Showcase has become the premier event of its kind in Des Moines and has become Des Moines Metro Opera’s signature fundraiser. Patrons will partake in a silent auction and raffle filled with packages that can only be found at Wine, Food & Beer Showcase.

Proceeds support Des Moines Metro Opera’s award-winning education and community engagement programs, which annually reach over 90,000 individuals. Tickets are $45 if purchased in advance; $55 at the door; $100 for the Reserve Experience.
