Las Olas Wine & Food Festival

Performing isn't the only kind of talent found in Greater Fort Lauderdale. Have a bite of what our top chefs have to offer at the 27th Annual Las Olas Wine and Food Festival on April 21. 

Las Olas Boulevard is a legendary street known for its quaint shops, twinkly lights, and amazing restaurants. This event is perfect for exploring it all while raising money for a good cause. From 7:30-10:30 p.m., four whole blocks will be full of guests sipping, sampling, and savoring dishes from a number of eateries, international wineries, spirits brands, and breweries. (That’s 200+ wines from around the world.) Everything from gelato to tacos to Korean BBQ will be yours for the tasting. While the food impresses, the atmosphere will most certainly not disappoint: live music, DJ’s, dancing, and incredible interactive experiences fit for VIP guests from Cadillac, Stella Artois, and more. 

One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit the South Florida American Lung Association, so if you’re 21 and over, bring your appetite and grab your tickets while you can.
