Spring Break in Miami: Buy Your Tickets Now for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival

Get all of the details on the upcoming South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and learn where to purchase tickets.


The Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival may have ended just days ago (we're still recovering from the pizza, burgers, meat parade and brunch), but preparations are already well underway in Florida for the 15th annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival, which kicks off in Miami on Wednesday, Feb. 24 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 28. This five-day celebration of all things eats and drinks brings your favorite Food Network stars together with top-notch chefs from across the country for late-night bashes, walk-around tastings, live demos and intimate dinners alike.

This winter, plan ahead to beat the chill and head down south to get your fill of A-list food and drinks while meeting and mingling with Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Giada De Laurentiis, Guy Fieri, Anne Burrell, Trisha Yearwood and more. They'll be on hand at events like Barilla's Italian Bites on the Beach, Amstel Light Burger Bash, which is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, as well as two days of grand tastings and demos.
