The Alys Foundation
10 Years of gathering to celebrate delectable pours, inspired food, connection, community, and CVHN.

The 30A Wine Festival, underwritten by The Alys Foundation, returns to Alys Beach this February 23 – 27 for its 10th year. This year we celebrate the trajectory, the growth, the memories of 10 years benefiting the Children’s Volunteer Health Network (CVHN) as we come together around food and drink. And this year, more than ever, we gather with gratitude for our community, for the opportunity to reconnect, for the chance to re-engage around these beautifully choreographed events showcasing renowned distillers, vintners, and culinary favorites. We relish the opportunity to give back to our surrounding community with proceeds from the festival and silent auction raised to support CVHN, providing health services to uninsured and underinsured children in Walton and Okaloosa County schools. We recognize the evolution of the 30A Wine Festival from its humble beginnings in 2012 to its grand scale in 2022, spanning five days with nine thoughtfully produced events, nationally recognized by publications such as Wine Spectator, USA Today, Southern Living, and Garden & Gun, in addition to our local favorites.  

This 10th year, after 2021’s pandemic pause where “Intermezzo” held the festival’s place with intimate events focused on our Alys Beach homeowner community, we honor the success of the festival, give thanks to those who have supported and labored for the festival over the years, and most of all we celebrate the privilege of gathering around these curated events, together, around leaders in wine, spirits, brews, and food; surrounded by the captivating setting of Alys Beach. 

If you’re joining us for the 10th Annual 30A Wine Festival, we can’t wait to celebrate with you. If you’re not able to be here in person, we hope you’ll join us via our website and our Instagram and Facebook pages, where you can also stay informed of next year’s events. Cheers! to 10 Years!
