Started in 1985, this annual food and beverage event is the oldest in the area and has become a yearly favorite for foodies and oenophiles alike. Featuring nearly 40 of the finest restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries in the area, the Wine & Food 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 filled with packages that can only be found at Wine & Food Showcase. Proceeds support Des Moines Metro Opera’s award-winning education and outreach programs, which annually reach over 90,000 individuals.
