Corks & Chefs is turning 16!

This highly anticipated annual food & wine event at Magic City Art Connection is a taster’s paradise, and continues to serve up delicious food from Birmingham’s best restaurants, delectable wines from around the world, plus great local and national brews and select coffees. It’s a taster’s dream!

Have fun exploring the visually enticing plates with eyes wider than your stomach. With multiple tasting stations lined with rows of wines to sample plus sit down, guided wine seminars lead by knowledgable vintners, there are many ways to navigate your your tasty tour through the 100 foot culinary tent. If you just need to kick back and relax, the patios are a great spot to take in your Corks & Chefs experience at a community table with the festival action close by. We’re showcasing live music performances there too.
