Fueled in part by increased attendance figures, out-of-town guests and total spending, the College of Charleston’s office of Tourism Analysis team estimates that the 2012 BB&T Wine and Food Festival brought nearly $8.6 million to the local economy.

This year’s impact is up from $7.3 million in 2011.
