It Began With A Simple Idea
A way to feature the very best tastes, sounds, people and passions of coastal Delaware. Six years later SoDEL Fest is widely known for our unique culinary experiences, award winning chefs, and winemakers from around the world. But it’s so much more than an amazingly indulgent day of wine, food & music. It’s a celebration of life, laughter, friendship and togetherness that pours each year’s proceeds into local non-profits doing important work to strengthen our community.
This Year's Events
The Southern Delaware Wine, Food & Music Festival has grown to over 700 attendees, plus well over one hundred volunteers, staff and vendors. Spend a great fall day enjoying specialty culinary delights and refreshing beverages as you listen to great tunes and peruse our auction items.
