Exclusive Tickets Still Available for South Beach Wine & Food Festival Events

Mark your calendars for Feb. 22 to Feb. 25 as more than 500 chefs, Food Network stars, and Grammy-winning musicians gather together.

Tickets remain available for one of the largest and most star-studded wine and food charity festivals in the U.S., the 23rd annual Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF). It is scheduled to take place from Feb. 22 to Feb. 25, and will feature over 105 events, including Food Network’s most renowned personalities, Grammy-winning musicians, several of today’s biggest lifestyle personalities, and more than 500 chefs and wine and spirit producers. As the Magic City transforms into the ultimate culinary playground, they will come together for an unforgettable celebration.

“The Festival is as much a showcase of great food and drink as it is a celebration of the spirit of Miami,” says Lee Brian Schrager, Festival Founder and Director. “The magical setting of Miami is as much a secret to the Festival’s success as the amazing local, national and international talent that brings fans back year after year. It’s amazingly rewarding to see the Festival that started on the campus of FIU as an international stage that benefits the school nurturing the great hospitality leaders of the future.” 

The festival’s two iconic open-air tasting tents—American Airlines North Venue and Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village—are set to return to South Beach’s sublime stretch of sand for two days and four nights. The event will feature the nation’s most talented chefs and lifestyle personalities, all supported by more than 1,500 student volunteers from Florida International University. Here’s a taste of what you can expect:

The combined efforts of SOBEWFF and its sister NYCWFF have raised more than $51 million, benefiting the charities of each Festival. In addition to the funds raised, both festivals highlight the dynamic dining cultures of their cities, create economic growth in their communities and function as a platform for promoting various philanthropic activities.
