Food, Wine and Music
The International Food and Wine Festival is not just about food. One of the biggest parties of the year, the event is described as, “A spectacular celebration of global cuisines, music & more.” The Eat to the Beat Concert Series invites some local and well-known singers and groups to showcase their talents on these nights of fun and frolic.
Eat, dance and drink the night away as you groove to these their tunes while enjoying some of the most delectable treats from far-flung places.
