  • FAQ's

    Can I bring my baby/children to an event?

    Although cute, given the nature of the Crush Wine & Food Festival, we are required by the state of Alabama to check IDs for all attendees to verify that they are of legal drinking age to gain access to our event.


    Can I bring my pet?

    Also cute but sorry, no dogs (excluding service dogs)


    I’m interested in volunteering with the Crush Wine & Food Festival. How do I sign up?

    We will have designated smoking areas that are not near the wine tasting tents. Please be conscious of this so that you do not disturb the guests tasting wine.

    Is there a “non-drinking” ticket price?

    No, we do not offer a separate “non-drinking” ticket price.


    Is it rain or shine?

    Yes, tickets are non-refundable. However, they are transferrable so if last minute you’re unable to attend, feel free to sale or give your ticket to a friend.


    What about food?

    Food is not included in admission tickets. Many of the gourmet specialty food vendors do offer small free samples of their products so you can taste before you buy. For meals, we have a fine selection of food trucks. No outside food or drinks will be permitted. Free bottles water is available at the water tent.
