This summer, foodies will have a brand new way to celebrate all things local when it comes to their favorite chefs, restaurants, and breweries in South Florida.
Celebrating its first year, the Savor SoFlo food festival will include a first-class culinary showcase of South Florida’s most celebrated chefs, acclaimed restaurants, and popular breweries, says event founder Tammy Gail, along with a curaetd selection of wines, interactive activies, and cooking demonstrations — all located within the event's spacious Grand Tasting Village just steps from the ocean in Hollywood Beach.
The two-day inaugural event will take place on Saturday, June 5 through Sunday, June 6, 2021. Tickets are on sale now for both general admission and VIP options, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Memorial Healthcare Foundation and Glam-A-THON.
"This event comes at a pivotal time," said Gail. "As it gives the hospitality industry a chance to shine once again, and showcase the unique culinary adventures and experiences that exist in South Florida."
As part of the Savor SoFlo experience, all event guests will receive a limited-edition wine glass, custom tote bag, wine glass lanyard, and exclusive access to the Grand Tasting Village located inside the event's 20,000-square-foot tent. Food, wine, and beer samplings are all inclusive in the ticket prices.
General admission ticket holders ($75 per person) will have access to unlimited tastings in the Grand Tasting Village starting at 1 p.m., while VIP ticket holders ($100 per person) will have access to unlimited tastings in the Grand Tasting Village and VIP Spirits Lounge starting at noon. The event ends at 4 p.m. both days. Only those 21 years of age and older will be admitted.
In an effort and observance of Hollywood Beach’s mission to reduce its environmental impact and become more sustainable, SAVOR SoFLO and all participating vendors will solely use compostable or biodegradable materials throughout the weekend. Additionally, the festival will be operating under strict mask and social distancing guidelines and safety regulations of the CDC, City of Hollywood and Broward County.
