Every year, the food and wine gods and CBS Radio Orlando come forth and bless downtown Orlando with a very special gift. This year, that gift of the 9th Annual Downtown Food & Wine Festival falls on Saturday, February 25th and Sunday, February 26th at Lake Eola Park. Whether you are a surf and turf kind of person, or you prefer the eclectic compilations of more local eateries, this event is sure to please your palate.

Satisfy Your Inner Foodie At the 9th Annual Food and Wine Fest!

Join over 30 of Central Florida's best local, regional, and national restaurants as they bring you a cornucopia of food fare. A few of the fantastic eateries slated to bring their culinary creations are COPPER CANYON GRILL, Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant | East Orlando, Tapa Toro, Gringos LocosHawkers Orlando, and The Porch! Let's not forget, the over 50 domestic and international wine pairings. Never fear if you are more of a beer fan, there are beer and liquor stations that will be set up throughout the festival.

At the 9th Annual Downtown Food And Wine festival, you will get the opportunity to sample all sorts of delicacies from foreign and familiar restaurants and the wines that go with them, at very reasonable prices. Who knows? You may even leave with a new favorite! Like any self-respecting foodie knows, you must also set the mood.

Of course, all good food and wine should also be paired with good music. Bring your friends and hang out by the main stage on Saturday as you vibe to Johnnyswim, and set the city on fire with a performance by Gavin Degraw, or you can do a little dance as KC and The Sunshine Band play that funky music on Sunday. Hang out in between and burn some of those calories off as DJ's play your favorite music at the STK Lounge.
