It's Here!

The Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is North Texas’ most celebrated cuisine and beverage festival, taking place over four days and nights to showcase our thriving culinary community.

The festival’s growing roster of talented chefs, food artisans, craft brewers, and distinctive vintners bring a range of tastes, styles, and methods that reflect the city’s diversity. The Foundation also offers events throughout the year, including Shooting with the Chefs, Reserve Wine Tasting, and collaborative dinners.

But it’s more than good food and good fun – it’s a good cause.

That’s because proceeds from the festival go to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds for local grant programs and culinary scholarships. To date, the Foundation raised $325,000 for grants and scholarships supporting deserving culinary students from Fort Worth. With your continued support, we can keep this program going strong in the years to come.

Festival Lineup

“The FWFWF has helped my business tremendously because I’ve been able to partner with other people in the food service industry and engage in conversation with potential customers from all over the DFW metroplex. This has led to booking more private events for my food truck as well.”

“Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival provided Pearl Snap Kolaches an opportunity to grow into a very open culinary community. We have embarked on so many new food ideas simply by collaborating with other chefs that we met at the festival and by volunteering every year since we were invited! It is a treasure to our city and reflects so much of our culture and values.”
