This past week, chefs, food enthusiasts, cocktail nerds, wine tasters, beer drinkers, and celebrities descended on Greenville, South Carolina, for culinary festival Euphoria. What followed was four days of tasting tents, concerts, cooking demonstrations, wine class, multi-course dinners, and plenty of stalking of the big stars in town.

Actor/motorcycle enthusiast Keanu Reeves was the most-talked about guest in attendance — anyone lucky enough to get a photo promptly posted it on all their social media feeds. Reeves was in town to talk about Arch Motorcycle Company (he’s a co-owner) and attend the Michelin-starred dinner on Saturday, September 23, at The Lazy Goat.

On-air personality for The Weather Channel Jim Cantore was also in attendance. Those who didn’t have any luck finding Reeves got a photo with Cantore, as he mingled among the guests at the tasting events.

Since musician Edwin McCain helped found Euphoria (he’s from Greenville), he kind of had to be there. He performed for crowds at The Taste of the South on Friday, September 22.

Here’s some palate cleansers after all those celebrity photos. Oh, and fried chicken.

Winner winner... Damn! This fried #chicken dinner. #LickLick @euphoriagreenville #euphoriaGVL

Now, the real celebrities of the festival — Michelin-starred chefs Michael Mina, Dominique Creen, and Curtis Duffy. Eater spotted all three at their multi-course dinner on Saturday evening.

And then drinking coach Tiffanie Barriere dropped in.

Here’s some more food photos, including the beautiful oyster set-up from Charleston’s The Darling.

The biggest line of the festival? John Lewis’ brisket, of course.
