The Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival was founded with the purpose of growing and celebrating Fort Worth’s culinary scene. Supporting local restaurants, bars and small businesses, when the opportunities arise, is going to continue to be important to our city. Visit our Donate page to learn more.
All proceeds benefit the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation 501(c)(3). The Foundation’s mission is to honor the distinctive nature of Fort Worth cooking, food, beverage, and culinary traditions by promoting national and regional attention to the Fort Worth scene and assisting and sustaining chefs, restaurants, and the local ranching and farming communities to raise funds for local grant programs and culinary scholarships; to elevate the skills and culinary knowledge of the general consumer; and to provide internship experiences for those interested in pursuing a career in public relations or marketing.
Your ticket to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival covers all of the food and beverages you can (responsibly) consume at the event. Just bring your appetite and enjoy!
