TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR THE 23rd ANNUAL FOOD NETWORK SOUTH BEACH WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY CAPITAL ONE.

November 6th, 2023

Food Network Stars, Grammy-Winning Musicians, and 500+ Chefs Will Come Together February 22-25, 2024 –

Tickets are officially on sale for one of the biggest, most star-studded, and delicious wine and food charity festivals in the country: the 23rd annual Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®). Taking place February 22-25, 2024, the four-day Festival will return with more than 105 events, Food Network’s biggest stars, Grammy-winning musicians, today’s biggest lifestyle personalities and more than 500+ chefs and wine and spirit producers who will come together for an unforgettable celebration as the Magic City transforms into the ultimate culinary playground.

“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.” 

So what fan favorites are returning? Of course, it wouldn’t be SOBEWFF® without the Festival’s two iconic open-air tasting tents – American Airlines North Venue and Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village – returning to South Beach’s sublime stretch of sand for two days and four nights of 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:

From high-energy cooking competitions to exclusive one night only pop-ups, we’ve cooked up a range of new events that will keep you entertained all Festival long. Highlights include:

  • A Sushi Omakase Collective hosted by MILA Omakase, Mr. Omakase, Nossa Omakase, Sushi By Scratch Restaurants and Miss Crispy Rice (Sunday, February 25)

From Overtown and Wynwood to Hallandale Beach and the Miami Design District and all points in between, the 2024 Festival offers a carefully-curated series of events spotlighting the vibrant local cuisine and culture of these neighborhoods and the profoundly important role they have had in shaping South Florida today. Event highlights:

This year’s Festival will feature more than 60 intimate gatherings – from seated Brunches and Lunches, to Master Classes, to Wine Seminars and one-night-only Intimate Dinners. These present attendees the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the art of gastronomy, engage in meaningful conversations and intimately connect with their favorite chefs, local restaurateurs, vintners and mixologists.  Each event will feature a variety of high-end wines and spirits from the Festival’s exclusive provider, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits.

To date, the Festival has raised more than $37 million in support of its educational mission to cultivate future leaders of the hospitality industry at the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University (FIU). Between SOBEWFF® and its sister NYCWFF, more than $51 million has been raised to benefit the respective charities of each Festival. Beyond the funds raised, both Festivals draw attention to the vibrant dining cultures of their respective cities, provide economic stimulus in their communities, and serve as a platform to drive awareness and engagement for a wide array of philanthropic activities.
