Posted by Maryanne Salvat On February - 23 - 2023

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for those who love wine, food, fun, music, spirits, Chef-lebrities and all the joy that the annual 22nd annual Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®) is sure to deliver! The beachside bacchanal will take place from February 23-26, 2023. Widely recognized as America’s favorite gourmet gathering on the beach, the four-day Festival returns to the sand with more than 100 events spanning Miami-Dade and Broward counties. For the 22nd installment, Food Network personalities, Grammy-winning musicians, and more than 450+ chefs and wine and spirit producers will come together for a celebration comprised of walk-around tastings, intimate dinners, late-night parties, brunches, lunches, master classes, wine seminars and more.

The Festival kicks off on Thursday, February 23 with iconic chef, restaurateur, television personality and cookbook author, Emeril Lagasse, as he hosts the 16th annual Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons® with a special performance by Grammy-nominated country music group, Midland. Sprawling several blocks on the sands of South Beach, the Festival’s two iconic open-air tasting tents – North Venue and Grand Tasting Village – return to showcase the nation’s most talented chefs and lifestyle personalities who are supported by more than 1,200 student volunteers from Florida International University.

Our favorite local DJ, Danny Stern, will once again keep us dancing and burning off some of the 100,000 calories in which we will indulge. Look for Danny at most of the signature parties.

Also keeping us jumping, dancing and carrying on, will be Party Master, Dave Grutman. On Sunday afternoon, grab a front row spot on the sand for the David Grutman Experience with live performances by DJ Khaled and Cedric Gervais. Enjoy Belvedere Vodka, Moët & Chandon Champagne, and bites by Komodo, Swan, Papi Steak, Strawberry Moon, The Key Club & Gekko. Think LIV at 4 am except during daylight hours. Vampires be sure to pack your sunglasses.

From Overtown to Wynwood to Hallandale Beach and the Miami Design District in between, the Festival has curated a series of events to showcase the vibrant local cuisine and culture of these neighborhoods and the profoundly important role they have had in shaping the South Florida we have come to know and love.

The complete line-up of events for the 22nd annual Festival is now available online at Stay up to date all weekend long by following along with the #SOBEWFF hashtag on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
