April 25-26 at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach Blue
The Deerfield Beach Wine & Food Festival is almost here! This fun-and-food-filled fest, dubbed “A Blue Wave Affair,” has fast become the Deerfield’s biggest and best food & wine event, drawing hundreds of restaurants, wine & spirits purveyors, local merchants, and food & wine fans (like you!). Now celebrating its fourth year, the Festival takes place Friday & Saturday, April 25 & April 26 at Quiet Waters Park on Military Trail (just south of Hillsboro Blvd.) in Deerfield Beach.
Here’s your chance to experience unlimited food & wine samplings, craft beers, live entertainment, and more – all amidst the serene environments of Quiet Waters Park (which may not be so quiet on Saturday night!). Come meet and mingle with fellow foodies, wine lovers, and skilled chefs as they prepare their signature dishes. It’s all brought to you by BocaRaton.com, The Bites! Network, and WineEvents.com (yes, those same crazy folks who bring you the Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival), and the Boca Burger Battle). According to Founder and President Russell Spadaccini, “this year’s “Blue Wave Affair” will be bigger and better than ever!”
