Tickets for Forks & Corks

On Sale November 11, 2013

This is just a reminder that tickets for the much awaited "Forks & Corks" event go on sale November 11. The festival is held from January 24 - 27, 2014, but sells out quickly. For those of you who have never experienced this yearly celebration, imagine four days of culinary debauchery involving various Florida wine and beer maker events, and food and wine seminars throughout the city.

The big ticket is the Grand Tasting, held at the Ringling Museum, complete with champagne reception, guided tour of the art museum, incredible food and wine pairings and tickets to the kick-off party. Last year, tickets for the Grand Tasting sold out in 4 hours.
