Nearly two decades ago, the first Las Olas Wine & Food Festival took place to benefit the American Lung Association. In the beginning, tastings took place in merchant locations and on the sidewalks. As the event grew and more vendors joined, they began to flow over into the street! Now, the world famous Las Olas Blvd is closed to traffic so street revelers can enjoy this amazing event! Now in its 19th year, they look forward to bringing you a spectacular festival! Last year, more than 2,000 attendees enjoyed fantastic food from 70 of South Floridaâ€™s finest restaurants and more than 45 wine tables, spirits and micro brews. Â This yearâ€™s event features a revamped VIP PrivÃ© party hosted by JM Lexus, exciting new restaurants and a variety of on-site events guaranteed to elevate the Festival experience. All proceeds from the Festival benefit the American Lung Association in Florida. Tickets include a complimentary wine glass (6Â½ oz.), butler tray and unlimited sampling from over 70 of the best local restaurants, 45 tables of wine, spirits, and micro brews.Â General admission is $100 and VIP is $225.
