If you’re Texas-bound in April, consider adding Austin to your route. The Austin Food & Wine Festival is set for April 25 through 27, 2014.
Throughout the weekend, you’ll experience up-close and personal access to culinary, wine and spirit talent at dozens of cooking demos, wine and cocktail seminars. Between sessions, drop by the Taste or Savor Lounges for beer, wine and cocktails.
Then sip and nibble your way through The Grand Tasting Pavilion showcasing over 80 wine, spirit and artisanal food exhibitors plus local and regional restaurants. Pick-up cookbooks and get them signed by their chef/authors in the Autograph Tent.
This being Austin, there will be live musical performances as well. From tacos and tequila to grilling and grapes, spoil yourself with the sights, sounds and laid-back flavor only the Live Music Capital of the World can offer.
The event benefits the Austin Food & Wine Alliance, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to fostering awareness and innovation in the Central Texas food and wine community through grants, educational programming and events.
