Wine & Food Celebration
Saturday, October 21
2 pm to 5 pm

White River Conference Center
600 West Sunshine
Springfield, Missouri

The Wine & Food Celebration returns to the White River Conference Center for our 30th anniversary on Saturday, October 21 from 2 to 5 pm.  For three decades, The Wine & Food Celebration has been one of Springfield’s most celebrated events.  It includes delicious food from Springfield’s finest restaurants, hundreds of wines, craft beer, and specialty cocktails.  

It’s great food, great drink, and great times...all for a great cause - proceeds benefit children’s programming on OPT.  OPT reaches approximately 50,000 kids in Southwest Missouri each week with research-based educational programming designed to ensure that all children across the Ozarks enter school ready to succeed.  OPT invests more than a quarter of its budget – over $500,000 each year – on children’s programming. And because OPT is available through free, over-the-air television, it reaches ALL families, regardless of income levels.
