Bartenders Challenge


Savannah's Finest Mixologists

Every year, Savannah Food & Wine Festival challenges bartenders from around the Savannah area to reimagine cocktails for a chance at being named the official "People’s Choice" winner of the Bartenders Challenge. The area’s finest mixologists whip up their best craft cocktails to impress our panel of judges during the preliminaries on Sunday, September 30th & Monday, October 1st. Their recipe includes one of our sponsor spirits of either vodka, gin, bourbon, tequila, whiskey and more.

With the preliminary and semi-final rounds being held at The Grove, the public is invited to come out and cheer on the competitors during these advance competition rounds. Admission is only $10 at each event and comes with two FREE sponsor brand drinks and a selection of appetizers. All ticket sales are at the door for each round of competition.
