Located at Austin’s Auditorium Shores and Fair Market, the festival and its annual fans are preparing for a full schedule of interactive food prep demonstrations, fire pits, live music, and lots of great wine (not to mention cocktail and mocktail tastings that pair wonderfully with all the tremendous food fare!) This event features world-renowned chefs together with culinary guests, and a variety of sommeliers.
