South Beach Wine and Food Festival
Welcome back, South Beach Wine and Food Festival!
If you were wondering why all those big huge tents were on the beach, now you know. It’s yet another festival in South Florida. We may not know how to cast a proper ballot, run a city government, or elect qualified officials, but damn we know how to throw a party!
What began as a humble little one-day festival known as Florida Extravaganza at the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus is today known as the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Held on the beautiful sands of South Beach and at various fine restaurants throughout the area, this festival is the largest and most well-known of its kind.
Now in its 7th year, the star studded four-day event is hosted by Southern Wine and Spirits of Florida and Florida International University (FIU). The festival benefits the Teaching Restaurant and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center, both located at FIU.
Tonight’s parties include:
- Amstel Light Burger Bash at Ritz Carlton
- D’vine Divas at the Biltmore
- Paula’s Poker Party at the Paris Theater
