Become a Sponsor


AFWA has been a simply amazing partner for Treaty Oak. They represent not just a marketing opportunity or event coordination, but rather a group that understands who we are as a company and looks for the best possible fit for us to share our brands with genuinely curious consumers. The fact that working with AFWA also means helping the innovative F&B environmental locally is the icing on the cake.  -Daniel Barnes, Founder, Treaty Oak Distilling

Sponsors of the Austin Food & Wine Alliance are invaluable partners. Their contributions go directly to sustaining and growing the Alliance’s grant program, signature events, and educational resources. 

As a sponsor of AFWA, you’ll enjoy the benefits of our unparalleled community support within Central Texas’ professional culinary community as well as a solid fan base of food and wine lovers. Sponsorship opportunities are customizable and include the option of prime visibility at signature events, recognition at the annual grant awards unveiling, and/or the chance to engage with the next generation of talent at the Culinary Arts Career Conference.

We have incredible relationships with some of the most well-regarded organizations and brands. For example, we are the designated non-profit beneficiary of the Austin Food + Wine Festival, the Alliance’s biggest supporter. We would love to work with you, too.
