Nothing breaks up the seemingly constant deluge of winter's snow, sleet and slush quite like a getaway to a sunny beach, and this weekend all eyes will be on the Florida coast as the South Beach Wine & Food Festival returns to Miami. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the South Beach festival, which begins tomorrow, February 24, and runs through Sunday, February 28; this means that the parties will be grander, the music a bit louder, and the eats and drinks a bit bolder as your favorite Food Network and Cooking Channel chefs make their way to the sand to celebrate the weekend.

If you've purchased a ticket or two, get set to mingle with stars like Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Alex Guarnaschelli and Robert Irvine as they bring their best beachside bites to life at walk-around tastings, intimate sit-down dinners and late-night bashes alike. But if you can't head south this weekend, be sure to stay tuned to FN Dish all weekend long. Our editors will be onsite at the festival's fan-favorite events, including Rachael Ray's famed Burger Bash and Duff Goldman's Sweet 15: A Dessert Party, bringing you all the sights, sounds and tastes up close.

For the first time ever, this year Food Network will be broadcasting live on Facebook from the South Beach Wine & Food Festival as we stream segments from the Grand Tasting on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Check out Food Network's Facebook page at about 2:45 p.m. EST both days to catch Alex and Robert hosting Saturday's event and then Anne Burrell and Andrew Zimmern hosting Sunday's. They'll be chatting about the ins and outs of the festival and answering all of your questions live, so get ready to post a question as you watch.
