CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival, an annual weekend-long celebration of Charleston's culinary excellence, gets a head start Thursday before opening ceremonies officially kick things off Friday morning.

Over 80 events are scheduled this weekend throughout the Lowcountry, offering a little something for everyone. The festival will run Thursday, February 28 through Sunday, March 3.

Each event will offer a special experience for foodies and wine connoisseurs as guests will be able to rub elbows and chat with some of the country's best chefs, authors and beverage professionals. Events include cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, competitions, and much more.

Just about every event at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival comes with a price tag, ranging from the $30 Waffle House Smackdown on Saturday (sold out) all the way up to the $1000 Tribute to Frank Stitt (also sold out).

But there are a couple free events, such as the official Festival Opening Ceremonies which will take place at Marion Square on Friday at 11 a.m.
