He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaccckkkk! The Festival is excited to partner once again with nightlife and hospitality guru David Grutman to bring you the return of The David Grutman Experience at the Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village! Recognized worldwide for his hotspots LIV, Story, Komodo, Swan/Bar Bevy, and concepts Planta and OTL, Grutman is bringing his signature over-the-top curated experiences and restaurants straight to the sands of Miami Beach for the third year. The David Grutman Experience will be hosted by Ludacris with top DJ’s on-site, including a set by wildly popular artist and producer Cedric Gervais as part of the experience.

Throughout the entire venue, attendees will sip on wines and libations from more than 80 suppliers from the Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits portfolio and nosh on tastings from more than 55 restaurants. The return of the featured David Grutman Experience throughout the day will be a specially curated 360-experience including interactive activations featuring his one-of-a-kind hospitality concepts and high-energy beats.

Fans will continue to enjoy more places to relax and absorb this experience throughout the Goya Foods' Grand Tasting Village -- whether it’s with a cocktail under the shade or your hips swaying to the beat of our featured musical experiences. You can choose to spend the whole day at this signature Festival event, or you can choose to select the 3 - 5 PM on Ocean Drive experience. You still get the benefit of seeing all of your favorite chefs who are scheduled for Sunday afternoon Publix Culinary Demonstrations sponsored by Sub-Zero Group Southeast and Book Signings from 3 - 5 PM, plus you'll get to 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, representing distinct districts across South Florida -- from South Miami and Coral Gables to Brickell, Wynwood, South Beach and on into Fort Lauderdale.

If you purchase the 3-5 PM ON OCEAN DRIVE ticket, you will be permitted entry into the Goya Foods' Grand Tasting Village starting at 3 PM on Sunday, February 24.
