SOUTH BEACH WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL 

The Food Network and Cooking Channel’s South Beach Wine and Food Festival will, indeed, take place in 2021 – but it has been rescheduled to give organizers more time to plan a safe event.

The new dates: May 24-27, 2022. Make sure to mark 'em on your calendars!

Here's the official statement on the event Facebook page:

“Due to growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the well-being of attendees, partners, participants and staff as the number one priority, #SOBEWFF has decided that rescheduling the event is the most responsible course of action at this time. We know it is the right thing to do. 

“We are steadfast in our plans to celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2021 and postponing the Festival by just a few months will enable us to better execute the safest and best possible experience and to maximize the impact we have for our charitable partner, Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management, and the local community.
 
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the sand in May.”
 
The event, hosted by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and Florida International University, typically attracts more than 65,000 guests annually to its 100-plus events throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, according to organizer.

A fundraising event for FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center, the festival has raised more than $31.8 million.
