The event organizers for the annual Greenwich Wine + Food Festival have decided to move their 10th Anniversary Celebration (originally scheduled for September 28th through October 3rd, 2021) to Spring 2022 due to COVID-19.
In website and social media announcements to the community, Greenwich Wine + Food released the following statement:
"With the uptick in Covid cases and the growing concerns for our community, it is with a very heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the larger Anniversary Celebration until Spring 2022. In reviewing the goals and expectations of GWF events, coupled with the collaborative nature of our celebration, and new Covid restrictions, we are unable to deliver a safe, fun and secure event for our guests traveling from various towns and states to attend.
'A cornerstone of GWF is bringing our guests exclusive experiences with some of their favorite icons in the culinary and music industries,' noted CEO Suni Unger. 'As our fans and partners began to express uncertainty about how this culinary celebration would work with cases of the Delta variant on the rise, we realized they simply don’t. As a community event aiming to lift-up those in need, we will continue to explore ways we can continue to shine a light on our culinary partners and our co-beneficiaries’ missions while raising vital funds in the coming weeks and months.'
Our deepest gratitude goes out to all of our partners who have been working to create this wonderful celebration.
On behalf of all of us at Greenwich Wine + Food, Wholesome Wave Organization and The Jacques Pépin Foundation, we look forward to celebrating with you in Spring 2022!"
