Des Moines' Whiskey Festival is BACK and will be taking place in downtown Des Moines, IA at The River Center!
A two day festival featuring food, music, cigars, fun, contests, speakers, charities and of course WHISKEY! How could you miss it?!
The kick off to Whiskey Fest is our signature dinner, Women N Whiskey. A 4 course/ 4 whiskey pairing dinner with a special speaker and mixologist demonstration. Each dish is also created by a local women chef! To end the night, a female headlining entertainer will take the stage. We eat great food, drink whiskey, and have entertainment between each course!
Spend your day tasting new whiskeys, listening to endless music, and eating your way around the festival. So many fun filled options! Dont forget about the cigar truck or the outdoor game patios. Whiskey Fest has expanded and will take over both sides of The River Center.
Saturday is full of food, music, entertainment and more! Enjoy all day activities like axe throwing, cigar trucks, contests, speakers, games, and of course WHISKEY! We will be featuring over 200 types of whiskey for tasting!
