BACARDI is gearing up to celebrate 20 years of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival® with 15+ fan-favorites from throughout the years - and a special guest performance by 90’s icon, Grammy Award-winner and frontman of legendary group RUN DMC Rev Run. Join us to close-out the epic 20th anniversary of the Festival with a celebration of joie de vivre hosted by good friend and James Beard Award-winning TV personality Andrew Zimmern, who also moonlights as a chef, food writer and teacher. Zimmern is widely regarded as one of the most versatile, knowledgeable and “bizarre” personalities in the food world, and he’s ready to bring his vivacity and passion to this stroll down memory lane on the sand.
Missed a signature #SOBEWFF event that your friends still talk about as ‘the most delicious event of the year’... one, two or even 20 years later? Here’s your chance to finally try what you’ve missed! We’re recreating our favorite bites from past Festivals – think Lucky Chopsticks, Southern Kitchen Brunch, Paella & Tapas by the Pool, Emeril’s Sugar Shack – for one night only, as we reminisce about the past, and look forward to at least 20 more years of the Festival! Let’s celebrate where we’ve come from and who’s supported us over the years, and cheers to them with free-flowing and refreshing craft cocktails with spirits from BACARDI’s vast portfolio, including BACARDÍ® Rum, BOMBAY® Sapphire, GREY GOOSE® Vodka, DEWAR’S®, D’USSE® Cognac, PATRÓN® Tequila and Tequila CAZADORES®. Shaken, stirred or on the rocks - the possibilities are endless!
Food, seemingly endless drinks, flavors and fun – we’ve got 20 down, but we’ve only just begun! Come sip, savor and relive the memories of our favorite #SOBEWFF moments with us!
EAT. DRINK. EDUCATE.
All proceeds from the Festival benefit the students of the Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management who assist Festival organizers in all aspects, including Festival planning, logistics and overall execution.
