Fort Worth Food and Wine Festival

It's no secret that we’re not all barbeque and Tex-Mex in Fort Worth. In addition to succulent steaks, righteous ribs, farm-to-table dining, and mouth-watering Mexican fare, you’ll find world-class flavors from around the globe, including sophisticated Italian dining and exotic Asian cuisine. In fact, some of the greatest culinary artists, Jon Bonnell, Tim Love and Lanny Lancarte call the City of Cowboys and Culture home. As the culinary scene in Fort Worth continues to rise, there's no better time to share Fort Worth's finest and no better way to celebrate the thriving culinary scene than Fort Worth's first annual Food + Wine Festival next spring: March 27-30, 2014!

Be sure to save the date, as you don't want to miss this celebration of the Fort Worth food culture!

The four-day festival will play host to local talents and other featured guests in an effort to infuse historic venues and homegrown flavor with celebrated local chefs, culinary professionals and wine makers through 20+ events during the weekend. The festival will pay homage to the authenticity of Fort Worth cooking, food, beverage and culinary traditions, and aims to bring much-deserved national attention to the Fort Worth food scene.
