SOBEWFF 2017 Goya Foods Grand Tasting Village
Miami Beach

Loosen those belt buckles, and get ready for the tastiest time of the year — South Beach Wine & Food Festival!

As the host hotel of the Festival, Loews Miami Beach Hotel will be home to a record-setting nine events this year, including two that are brand new to the festival: the Family Ice Cream Social with Duff Goldman and Late-Night Desserts & Dancing with Bobby Flay.

On the whole, the Festival offers five jam-packed days of nearly 100 food and drink events across two counties… It truly takes a pro to consume that much food. Which is why we’ve turned to three South Florida food experts for their tips on how to take on South Beach Wine & Food Festival weekend like a professional.

For any first-timer, what I always advise is they should definitely see the Grand Tasting Village, with all the celebrity chef demos. We want everyone to buy as many tickets as possible, but we don’t want them to be overwhelmed. Pick a few that you really want rather than overdoing it:
