The 20th South Beach Wine & Food Festival Is Set to Return — With New Safety Measures

Mark your calendars for this milestone celebration starting on Thursday, May 20.

The South Beach Wine & Food Festival is BACK! Here’s the deal: Yes, things are going to look a little different this year. But the parts of the festival you’ve come to know and love — tons of food, the best drinks in the world and a roster of Food Network stars — will be on hand as we gather responsibly to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this beloved tradition.

The first events kick off on Thursday, May 20 and run through Sunday, May 23. Of course, the health and safety of everyone working at and attending the festival is of the utmost priority, and there will be strict Covid safety protocols in effect throughout the weekend. Among the measures the staff is taking, attendees can expect to provide proof and/or attestation of a negative PCR COVID-19 test dated no more than 72 hours prior to the event(s) or alternatively proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination; presentation of a cleared SymCheck QR Code; a contactless ticketing system; and temperature checks at all events.

Tickets are on sale now, and you don’t want to miss the chance to attend some of the most-popular events. Picture this: An Italian feast on the beach with Giada De Laurentiis, a Champagne-studded barbecue with Guy Fieri, burgers-aplenty with grill master Bobby Flay and a sweet dessert extravaganza with Scott Conant.

So, while there may be new pandemic processes in place this year, there’s no shortage of ways to eat, drink and mingle (safely!) at SOBEWFF. Click here to browse all events and purchase tickets now.
