The Inaugural FEAST! Vail, a Culinary Event, Kicks Off Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day week-end is around the corner and FEAST! Vail offers an opportunity for a mountain trip that focuses around food. The three-day event, which will take place between May 24 and May 26, aims to inspire guests with a weekend packed with culinary experiences and signature Vail adventure activities.

Popular Vail chefs, including Kelly Liken of Restaurant Kelly Liken, Paul Anders of Sweet Basil, and Oliver Philpott of La Tour, will collaborate with some of the state's best culinary talent and will be joined by masters of the vine, cocktail artisans and craft beer experts, all game for adventure, from the kitchen table to the mountain trail.

Several of Denver's best chefs, including Frank Bonanno, Troy Guard of TAG, Jeff Osaka of Twelve, and Elise Wiggins of Panzano, are also participating.

"Everyone knows about the adventure-side of Vail's summer with climbing, fishing and hiking, but Vail has also built a reputation for culinary excellence, so we wanted to combine these two aspects in one fantastic weekend," said event producer James Deighan of HIGHLINE. "Participants will not only be treated to some exceptional food and drink, but they also have the opportunity to climb, hike and take a fly-casting clinic with some of the best chefs in the nation. FEAST! is a true Vail-lifestyle experience," he added.

Tickets for the events are sold a la carte and can be purchased online at Individual event tickets vary in price. A full schedule of events, lodging, and other details are available at or by calling (970) 476-6797.
