For those of you that need a little more convincing, read on.
This past March marked a milestone in the growth of Cowtown’s culinary scene when the first annual Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival came in with a bang and left everyone hungry for more. The festival’s most popular event, Burgers, Brews + Blues, sold out to a crowd of over 800 attendees that ate and drank their way through the night. If you’re one of the many that was left scrambling to find a ticket, redemption is here! This event is back with the same formula for a good time, but with the twist of tacos.
Eleven restaurants will compete for bragging rights of best taco in town. Taco Heads, Del Norte Taco, Mariposa’sLatin Kitchen and Velvet Taco may feel they have the upper hand, but notable chefs from A F+B, Bird Café, Clay Pigeon, Grace, Max’s Wine Dive, Pacific Table, and Reata have big plans to seize the taco title.
Find local favorites like Martin House, Rahr & Sons, Panther Island and Revolver Brewing among a list of 22 craft breweries that will be on hand for a battle of the brews. Taste your way through all 33 stations and vote on your favorite beer and taco while listening to live music from Joey Green Band.
General admission tickets are $60 and include food and drink from 5pm until 8pm. Early access tickets are $75 and get you in the door at 4pm to let the tasting begin an hour early. The event is for ages 21 and up only.
Funds raised go to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation which has awarded over $10,000 in charitable contributions that move food forward in Fort Worth. The second annual Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival will be held March 26-29, 2015.
