Culinaria was originally established as a way of celebrating local, exceptional chefs and restaurants. Through sponsored culinary events, it serves as one of the leading food-focused nonprofits in the San Antonio area, providing funds for scholarship programs aimed at students pursuing a career in the hospitality or culinary industry.

As you can imagine, it takes quite a bit of preparation and people to pull off a multi-day festival like Culinaria. They are always looking for some great volunteers — aged 18 and up only — to help pour wine, set-up events, check in attendees, and more. Opportunities are available throughout the year, so grab some friends, family members, and coworkers and sign up.

Held annually, Culinaria Festival Week features multiple events over the course of four days. From casual fare to haute cuisine, beer to Champagne, Festival Week truly offers something for everyone.
