Come September, I’ll be heading to Greenville, South Carolina, for Euphoria, a weekend long event that includes exclusive tasting events, cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, as well as multi-course dinners and live musical performances. Dedicated to excellence, euphoria features domestic and international wines, celebrity chefs, master sommeliers, and national recording artists.

The annual event shines a spotlight on Greenville, South Carolina¹s thriving Culinary and Arts Communities. Greenville, situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, stands out with its award-winning downtown, vast entertainment options and diverse population. And as a charitable organization, Euphoria gives back to the community that supports it, with all net profits providing sustenance to those in need, providing educational opportunities, and supporting children.

Here’s some information about what you can expect at Euphoria 2014.

I’ve been planning out what I’d like to attend, and it’s hard to make these choices.

And what about Greenville?

Centrally located along I-85 between the long-standing Southern urban centers of Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. Greenville and the surrounding areas, situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, are commonly referred to as the Upstate.

The cultural hub of the Upstate, Greenville’s downtown has blossomed into a desirable destination for out-of-towners and locals alike. Greenville’s newest pride is the breath-taking Liberty Bridge in Falls Park. Visitors to the park can enjoy outdoor shows and recreation without straying far from downtown’s enticing shops, galleries, venues, or restaurants. Families, pet-owners, and adults can visit the city’s many destinations or simply enjoy the hum of downtown life.

In recent years, Downtown Greenville has also developed into a dining/entertainment destination. With over 80 restaurants and pubs centered around Main Street, Greenville’s Downtown offers the greatest concentration of dining options in the entire Upstate area. In addition to great dining, a year-round series of special events appeal to almost every taste. With almost 200 event days a year, Greenville is a popular travel destination.
