Our Iconic Miami Beach Signature Events are Back!

Our iconic series of Miami Beach’s signature events is back in 2018, kicking-off with Barilla's Italian Bites on the Beach sponsored by HCP Media and the Miami Herald Media Company hosted by Giada De Laurentiis. One of the Festival’s most coveted tickets, Heineken Light Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons, gets a shake up this year with host Guy Fieri. More Miami Beach staple events will return with a classic mix of both fan-favorites and new talent including Yappie Hour hosted by Katie Lee, Oyster Bash hosted by Josh Capon, Fontainebleau Miami Beach presents Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best sponsored by Bank of America, Chicken Coupe hosted by Andrew Carmellini, Southern Kitchen Brunch hosted by Trisha Yearwood part of The NYT Cooking Series, and the Wine Spectator Wine Seminars presented by Bank of America. BACARDÍ once again brings the beats to the beach with BACARDÍ presents Walshy Fire’s Rum & Bass Beach Party, and Michael Symon closes out the weekend with his Beachside BBQ.


Additionally, the Festival’s beloved white tents nestled in the sand between 10th and 13th Streets and Ocean Drive will continue to host the Goya Foods Grand Tasting Village featuring Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents & KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations during the weekend. Plus, SOBEWFF® honors some of the world’s most recognized leaders in the culinary and beverage industries at its annual Tribute Dinner presented by Bank of America, part of The NYT Cooking Dinner Series. This year, the Festival honors one of the most beloved culinary personalities, Bobby Flay, alongside Treasury Wine Estates managing director and chief executive officer Michael Clarke, during an evening guided by Master of Ceremonies - and top-rated Y100 radio host - Elvis Duran at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
