Don’t Miss the Key West Food & Wine Festival

The Key West Food and Wine Festival is set for five days of food, wine and all things fine January 24-28 across the Conch Republic.

The annual event showcases inventive cuisine and a diverse range of wines introduced by their respective chefs and vinters. In its ninth year, the event offers over 20 events for culinary explorers and visitors to enjoy and sample a wide-range of products from local and international vendors.

This is the perfect time of year for travelers to escape the cold winter and enjoy the balmy weather of Key West. Visiting for the event? 24 North Hotel offers free shuttle service and comfortable, clean rooms for guests attending the event. See booking info here.

From Bahama Village to the Conch Republic Seafood Company, food and wine pairings that showcase the freshest food on the island are in the works. At 24 North Hotel, we offer a grilled cheese and beer pairing Friday, Jan. 26 from 6-8. Try fancy grilled cheese paired with the best Florida craft beers poolside. Get tickets here.

Additionally, to make use of the beautiful January weather and Sunset Green event Lawn, we welcome wines from California, Italy, Argentina and more in our Vinters Dinner with award-winning Chef David Fuhrman. Read more about our new outside event space here.

If you’re in town for the festival, don’t miss out on the Key West Master Chef’s Classic, where the best chefs in the lower-Keys go head-to-head in the kitchen and compete in different course categories. The event benefits the Monroe Association for ReMARCable Citizens, a non-profit agency that serves adult clients with developmental disabilities. The event is held in the Margaritaville Resort and Marine. More info here.

Scheduled events and ticket purchases are available on the Key West Food & Wine Festival website. Also, flip-flops are required … because a glass of wine tastes better while wearing flip flops.
