Forty at the 'Fork
Sunday, February 28, 2021 - Tuesday, April 13, 2021
40 chefs will pair up over the course of six weeks for this special 20-event dinner series. It’s the quality and creativity you expect from your local culinary favorites, but with a twist: for each dinner, you won’t know who’s behind the apron until that night.
Reserve Wine Tasting
Enjoy more than 25 pours of some of the finest wines while local wine experts guide you through tastes of exceptional reds, special whites and sparklers from around the world. A few selections include Duckhorn Vineyards, Mark Herold and Nickel & Nickel plus many others.

Your ticket covers all of the food and beverages you can (responsibly) consume at each event. Just bring your appetite and enjoy!

Tacos + Tequila
Upscale or down home, trendy or traditional – tacos are hot, any way you fold ‘em. And when they’re paired with tequila, it’s a win-win. Chefs and beverage vendors will bring their best to this fan favorite event.
Time to sip a true Texas cocktail, enjoy sweet somethings, savory snacks and dance the night away. Chefs and mixologists will create special eats and drinks for guests to sample. A local DJ will mix tunes to light up the night, too.
We’ll be pouring more than 100 exceptional wines, craft beers and spirits from near and far to pair perfectly with food from the best North Texas chefs, restaurateurs, artisan producers and crafters. You don’t want to miss this signature event.
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)!
