One of the best things about living in South Florida is the vast array of food festivals and food events offering enticing opportunities to taste a variety of scrumptious fare. The majority of these events are scheduled during the Spring months while the snowbirds are still in town and before the weather becomes too hot.
Here’s an overview of some of the fests slated for this Spring. For some events, tickets are required and the fee includes food and drinks. Occasionally, discounts are offered for early purchase. Other events are free to enter, and you purchase food directly from vendors. Some events are specifically for ages 21 and older, check the event websites for specific information.
