About the Food & Wine Festival / a bit of history

Originally conceived by the Saint Martin’s Alumni Association to help fulfill its mission to promote, support and enhance the Saint Martin’s educational and monastic community, the annual Capital Food & Wine Festival is a popular community celebration that has much to offer those who attend. The Festival is managed by a mostly all-volunteer committee of alumni, friends, University staff and other members from the greater community. At this year’s 27th annual festival, patrons can sample and taste:
  • More than 100 varietal and blended wines from 40 Washington State wineries.
  • More than 40 different beers on tap
  • Food favorites from local restaurants.
The Saint Martin’s Alumni Association welcomes graduates and attendees from the former Saint Martin’s High School, College and the University. Each year the Association uses the funds it has raised through efforts such as the Capital Food & Wine Festival to make generous contributions to the University’s general endowment fund and provide for direct scholarships to Saint Martin’s students. Proceeds from this year’s Festival also will support communities that the Saint Martin’s Alumni Association serves.
Saint Martin’s University is an independent, four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 14 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 25 majors and seven graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes nearly 1,200 undergraduate students and 323 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and 350 more students to its extended campuses located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Centralia College and Tacoma Community College. Visit the Saint Martin’s University website at www.stmartin.edu.
