From Feb. 22-26, foodies will celebrate in Fort Lauderdale and Miami — for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival isn’t limited to one city or county anymore.
And that’s good news for all of us.
In 2016, the festival hosted a series of events in Fort Lauderdale, to make sessions more accessible to some, and to explore the fan-dom in Broward County. Well, the response was so great that this year, they added more Fort Lauderdale sessions.
Now you have no excuse. There are still quite a few events that aren’t sold out – yet.
Here is a partial list of what remains. For the complete list, go to http://sobefest.com/events.
