Join us as we bring together the renowned and the on-the-rise, as our community’s culinary powerhouses pair up with students to create the evening’s six courses. The event will feature revered chefs, winemakers and restauranteurs, plus entertainment and recognition of one of Fort Worth’s brightest stars, 2019 Walter Kaufmann Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Jon Bonnell.
Our favorite brunches are the ones that last well into the afternoon, so we’ve created a four-hour celebration of the best of the fest. The Culinary Corral features a tasting tent, beer garden, artisan marketplace and live music. New for 2020 will be a Rosé and Croquet garden and a variety of add-on pop-ups. Wander, taste, sip, shop and just generally make yourself at home. Your ticket covers all of the food and beverages you can (responsibly) consume at the event. Just bring your appetite and enjoy!
Burgers, Brews + Blues
We’re celebrating a trio of all-American classics – sliders, craft beer and blues – at this rockin’ party on ranchland along the Trinity River. Chefs will grill up their best mini-burgers and craft breweries will each pour two different beers. Celebrity judges will choose their favorite burger while guests will select a fan favorite for both burgers and beer. Plus, throughout the evening, enjoy the live blues band lineup.
Ring of Fire: A Next-Level Cookout
Our Ring of Fire event will bring together chefs and beverage participants to take the cookout concept to a whole new level. We’ll still give barbecue its due, but we’re expanding this event to include live fire creations of all kinds, from exotic meat dishes to pizza – all paired with wine, beer and spirits and set to the beat of a live band. Don’t miss this brand new event featuring one of the culinary world’s hottest trends (yes, that’s a pun)!
