Last weekend in Coconut Grove ,the Coconut Grove Food and Wine Festival treated foodies, wine enthusiasts and local festival goers to some of the world’s best food and drinks while socializing to a beautiful backdrop of Biscayne Bay. This annual event in the heart of Coconut Grove is one of the neighborhood’s most awaited events and this year did not disappoint.
Attendees enjoyed culinary samples from famous chefs and caterers as well as Coconut Grove’s newest, and Miami’s finest, restaurants. The progressive walking tour began at the Historical Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove with stops that included the famous Mutiny Hotel Pool, McFarlane Road and more throughout the beautiful Village District. Chef demos showcasing Miami’s best chefs also ran through the event at the Culinary Showcase.
With a variety of ticket options available starting at just $25, the festival is an affordable and fun day out with offers from General Admission to Exclusive VIP and VIP Couples again this year. Children under 12 are always free (but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Well-behaved pets on leashes were welcome too and even had a special event within the event, the PetSmart Pet Contest!
Proceeds and donations benefited the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove. Celebrating 128 years of community service, the Woman’s Club has been providing community support and service since 1891… five years before Miami became a city! The earliest cultural center for Coconut Grove, The Club held various theatre performances, literary readings, musical entertainment and fabulous parties, which continue today. A favorite venue for weddings and corporate and private events, The Club is the perfect blend of historical and modern, with old Florida charm and modern luxurious amenities.
