Austin Food+ Wine
Austin is undoubtedly a food fanatic’s dream city. The ever-expanding city hosts a bevy of high end restaurants and just as delectable food truck offerings. With Austin Food + Wine Festival, Austin wraps local flare and global gastronomy into one delicious weekend to celebrate food culture in the heart of downtown Austin. 

Celebrity chefs, local talents, and foodies alike come together every year for the Austin Food + Wine Festival. Attendees enjoyed demonstrations over fire pits, tastings from Austin’s best chefs, and oh so many samples.

Food really does bring people together. After a day full of eating and mingling, strangers turned into friends, and together enjoyed the evening live music performances. Without leaving Auditorium Shores, festival-goers got a complete food tour of Austin’s best restaurants. Not only did they experience Austin eats, but because so many visiting chefs were in attendance, got to taste food from around the country and even the world.
