Fort Worth Food and Wine Foundation

About the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival

Now in its seventh year, the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is North Texas’ most celebrated cuisine and beverage festival, taking place over four days and nights in venues around our thriving culinary community. The festival’s growing roster of talented chefs and food artisans, as well as craft brewers and distinctive vintners, bring a range of tastes, styles and methods that reflect the diversity of the city itself. We also offer several events leading up to the festival, including our Sipping Series and CenterStage.

But it’s more than good food and good fun – it’s a good cause. That’s because proceeds from the festival go to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds for local grant programs and culinary scholarships. To date, the Foundation raised more than $170,000 for grants and scholarships supporting deserving culinary students from Fort Worth. With your continued support, we can keep this program going strong in 2019 and the years to come.
