South Beach Food and Wine Festival returned for its 20th anniversary (includes video story)

This year, South Beach Wine and Food Festival celebrated its 20th anniversary. The festival was supposed to take place in its regular February spot, but due to COVID, it was moved to May.

From May 20 to this past Sunday, guests enjoyed all-you-can-eat foods from a variety of restaurants along with an abundance of drink options. Local businesses like Miami Cocktails and restaurants like 109 Burger Joint set up tents to welcome guests. All events were sold out, and cleaning crews were constantly sanitizing shared areas.

Celebrity chefs from the Food Network including Andrew Zimmern, Jet Tila, Guy Fieri and Masaharu Morimoto held demo-cooking shows for guests of the festival.

SOBE Wine and Food Festival also announced will be back and in full swing next year, February 20-22.
