The Greater Fort Lauderdale Food & Wine Festival (GFLFW), released its schedule of events today. Taking place from Monday, March 15 – Sunday, March 21, 2021, the Festival strives to continue its mission to highlight Broward County as an eclectic dining destination that delights and captivates foodies from all over the country.
