South Beach Wine & Food Festival Has Started

The cherished culinary celebration, Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF), is here through Sunday. Presented by Capitol One, the SOBEWFF returns to Miami’s seashore for its 23rd year, welcoming its staple events alongside several new additions. The four-day fête brings renowned chefs, Grammy-winning musicians and wine and spirit producers to Miami. Its extensive dinners, parties and tastings programming caters to all palates, tastes and cravings. 

Tickets are still available for events, including intimate dinners with celebrated chefs like Valerie Chang, Michael Beltran, and Jose Mendin. For those looking for less expensive events, the festival’s website allows you to filter for tickets that are $100 or less. Those events include the Hallandale Beach Food & Groove, FoodieCon, a beer-making master class and a family ice cream social.

Standout events like the decadent Burger Bash hosted by Rachel Ray, Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village will all grace South Beach’s sands.

For celebrity chef fans, festivalgoers can look forward to appearances by Michael Mina, Francis Mallmann, Rocco DiSpirito, Jean-George Vongerichten and Mario Carbone. And if you’re looking to support our local talent, chefs like Pablo Zitzmann, Eileen Andrade, Michael Schwartz, Alex Meyer, Luciana Giangrandi and Marcus Samuelsson will all be there, too.

Once again, proceeds from the festival benefit the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University. To date, more than $37 million has been raised for the school.
