We wait patiently, well maybe not that patiently, for The Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s return every year because it’s everything we love about Miami.

The Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival signature event — the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village featuring MasterCard Grand Tasting Tents & KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations.
Remove your sensibilities as you enter this new and improved world devoted exclusively to sampling bold cuisine, stylish wines, carefully creative spirits and watching your favorite Food Network and Cooking Channel chefs, authors and culinary personalities in their own 45-minutes segments on the KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstration stages.
New for 2015, guests can enjoy the WHOLE venue from 12-5 pm and take a refreshing stroll through an unending array of scents and tastes in the MasterCard Grand Tasting Tents while celebrating all areas of Miami as participating restaurants will be grouped together in culinary quadrants led by their respective culinary captain, representing distinct districts across South Florida — from South Miami and Coral Gables to Brickell, Wynwood, SOBE and on into Ft. Lauderdale. Fans will also notice a new layout this year with more places to relax and enjoy this grand experience — whether it’s with a cocktail under the shade or your hips swaying to the beat of live music and/or DJs throughout the day. For the third year, attendees will be able to vote for their favorite dishes and decide which restaurant will win the Miami New Times’ “Short Order’s Best Bite on the Beach” award.
The Grand Tasting Village is located at 13th Street & Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. Please note, this is an outdoor event.
This year, the Festival will be providing free shuttle transportation to the Grand Tasting Village (GTV) from Festival parking lots near downtown Miami. The free park-and-ride service is an exclusive benefit for all Grand Tasting Village ticketholders. Shuttles will run continuously, both Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
