Posted Date: 
Tuesday, January 17, 2017

London’s most anticipated night out is just around the corner as the 12th annual Wine and Food Show, presented by White Oaks Mall, returns to Western Fair District.

Three days dedicated to sampling the finest foods, wines, spirits, and beers, while being entertained by everything from stage cooking presentations, tasting seminars, music, fashion shows and more.

Thursday kicks things off with Connoisseurs’ Night. Whether you’re a wine connoisseur, foodie or somewhere in between, Thursday is a chance to experience the tastiest day of the show, crafted specifically for those passionate about wine and food.

On Thursday night only, guests can take in the sounds of Eh440 an A Capella group with just a beat boxer, bass vocalist, and three very different lead singers.

Friday night is once again Ladies’ Night! Be one of the first 200 ladies through the door and receive a gift bag sponsored by Shoppers Drug Mart and Smashbox. Ladies’ Night will also feature London’s own firefighters’ fashion show as they take the stage and strut their stuff.

Saturday, is the day for show-goers to spend a full day experiencing all the show has to offer. Starting at noon and running until 10:30pm, it is the last day to take in the treats, drinks and eats from one of the 100+ exhibitors, sit in on one of our tasting seminars, check out stage presentations or be entertained by live music on stage or in our Country Saloon Lounge.

The 2017 London Wine & Food Show will feature even more entertainment than ever before, with five stages filled with food, music, tastings and demos plus five themed lounges to relax in as well as tasting seminars, industry experts, food connoisseurs, expert chefs, performers and fantastic exhibitors all three days of the show.
