THE FOOD NETWORK & COOKING CHANNEL SOUTH BEACH WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY CAPITAL ONE ANNOUNCES NEW FESTIVAL DATES


– The Festival’s 20th anniversary will take place May 20 – 23, 2021 –

Miami, FL (December 1, 2020) – Today the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®) announced that the 2021 Festival will be rescheduled to May 20-23, 2021. Due to growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the well-being of attendees, partners, participants and staff as the number one priority, SOBEWFF® has decided that rescheduling the event is the most responsible course of action at this time. We know it is the right thing to do.

We are steadfast in our plans to celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2021 and postponing the Festival by just a few months will enable us to better execute the safest and best possible experience and to maximize the impact we have for our charitable partner, the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University, and the local community.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the sand in May.
