About The Conference
Since 2016, The Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation has hosted the Fort Worth Area Culinary Career Conference for high school seniors. This year, the conference grows to embrace the many career paths offered by the hospitality industry and its unique relationship with agriculture. The conference will now be known as CRAFT: A Career Conference for the Next Generation of Hospitality Leaders and will be open to juniors and seniors currently participating in high school Career and Technical Education (CTE) culinary and hospitality programs. Holding true to its roots, the conference will support your career success and offers a unique opportunity to learn about the industry from the people who know it best!
