Boca Raton’s most anticipated wine and food festival is back and better than ever.
The 17th annual Boca Bacchanal Wine and Food Festival 2019 festival will take place April 4 to 6 at the famous Boca Raton Resort and Club. Hosted by the Boca Raton History Society and Museum, the event expects to attract more than 2,000 over the course of three nights.
World-class chefs nationwide will make their way to Boca to create mouthwatering meals for event guests, and internationally renowned vintners will provide delicious wines and libations.
"The new location at the Boca Raton Resort & Club and the addition of two new events to the weekend lineup will allow us to offer more opportunities and interactive experiences for attendees,” said Mary Csar, executive director of the Boca Raton History Society and Museum. “It is one of the oldest and most popular food and wine events in South Florida, and it remains the 'gold standard' for introducing people of all ages to outstanding restaurants, fabulous chefs, and noteworthy wineries throughout the weekend."
Boca Bacchanal kicks off on April 4 with its exciting debut event, Bubbles and Burgers, at the Boca Resort Beach Club. Guests will enjoy delectable burgers and a variety of Champagne and sparkling wines with pristine views of the Atlantic.
On Friday, April 5, indulge in one of the event’s signature five-course Vintner Dinners. The dinners are held in elegant, private estates and at historic locations for an intimate and unforgettable dinner party experience.
Head to the brand new VIP Party on Saturday, April 6 to meet the five featured vintners dockside at the Boca Resort Marina, as well as tour a luxurious 90-foot Cheoy Lee yacht before heading to the Grand Tasting.
The highly anticipated Grand Tasting will conclude the festival at the Boca Resort Great Hall. More than 20 luxurious restaurants will present dinner-by-the-bite on small plates, as well as 130 wine samples from various renowned wineries.
While enjoying their bites, guests can also partake in live and silent auctions for items and experiences from clothing, accessories, electronics and artwork to dinners and vacations.
