Additional Programming

In addition to the free two-day Conference, we encourage guests to join us in celebration of the richness of our region. The below events are free for conference panelists and distinguished guests, and are available at a special price for conference attendees. 

  • Mid-Conference (Friday, November 4): After the first day of the  conference, enjoy the flavors and cultures of the Southwest in a dinner and reception by James Beard Award winning Chef Janos Wilder at the Carriage House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  • Post-Conference (Sunday, November 6), we'll have brunch and special programming at the world-renowned Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, with stops on the way to visit some of Tucson's key heritage food sites. (Limited number of seats available)
