“One of the greatest pleasures of my life has been that I have never stopped learning about Good Cooking and Good Food.”

- Edna Lewis


"BFWF will raise awareness of and create opportunities for Black experts in the hospitality industry: chefs, artisans, farmers, brewers, and distillers." 

— Subrina Collier

By celebrating Black foodways and the industry members who make them possible, the festival will honor the diaspora, foster education, and create meaningful and joyous moments of celebration. Charlotte, NC, has become a true melting pot, drawing folks from around the world. We envision a world where that diversity and representation is equally visible in the arena of elevated food conversation and food festivals.

Join us in Charlotte, NC on Oct. 19-23, 2022 for the 2nd annual BayHaven Food and Wine Festival.
