Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival Returns Next Month with Special Fall Edition
September 28, 2021 | Steven Doyle | CRAVEdfw
After 18 months of restaurant closures and the postponement of the annual culinary festival on two occasions, Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation wants to uplift and honor the tenacity and resilience of the culinary community in Panther City through these showcase events. During the past nearly two years, the Foundation has awarded more than $115,000 in direct contributions to chefs and restaurants facing extraordinary hardships in the face of COVID 19 to ensure the continuation of talented people and beloved places thrive. The launch of the Fall Edition will help to ensure that this vital community support continues to provide assistance where it is needed most.
The Fort Worth Food + Wine Fall Edition will feature more than 40 chefs in three signature events, including:
- Taco. Beer. Repeat. — Friday, October 22, 5:30 pm- 9 pm
Experience the best Tacos and beer Funkytown has to offer, from the traditional to the inventive. 18 chefs and 20 beverage vendors will bring their most delicious grub to this Friday night event. Ticket covers all of the food and beverages you can (responsibly) consume at the event, so come ready to eat!
- Gameday Gourmet Saturday, October 23 — 1:30 pm-5 pm
Get a little Gameday fancy alongside 18 chefs bringing their A-game as they prepare tailgate favorites from sliders to a variety of meats cooked over live fire. Enjoy Texas craft beers, wines, and spirits from 20 different beverage vendors. Don’t forget to come tailgate ready in your favorite team jersey and fan gear! Ticket covers all of the food and beverages you can (responsibly) consume at the event, so come ready to eat!
- Bluegrass Brunch Sunday — Oct. 24, 11 am-2 pm.
Start the day with a bit of Southern cooking and a live Bluegrass band. Enjoy drinks and appetizers before sharing brunch at community tables. The seated five-course feast is a collaboration of six gifted chefs and includes various beverage pairings.
Tickets for all three events are currently available for purchase at fwfwf.com. Starting at $100, each event offers a unique lineup of menu options and one-of-a-kind experiences! Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend any of the Fall Edition events.
For epicureans seeking ways to support their favorite chefs beyond the price of entry, the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation is launching a unique sponsorship program designed to give back. This year, all restaurant partners can be sponsored by individuals and businesses in the community to help bridge the financial gaps created by the pandemic.

The Fort Worth Food + Wine Fall Edition has taken extra precautions to ensure the festival is a safe and positive place for participating food, beverage, and event participants. Following the CDC guidelines, each specialty event includes reduced capacity, outdoor venue, opportunities for social distancing, and widely accessible sanitation stations.
