Sobe Wine & Food Fest Ticket Giveaway!


The Food Network South Beach Food Festival 2014 starts today!  If you live in South Florida and have never attended any of the events, then shame on you!  This is a HUGE festival that garners nationwide attention, along with everyone who’s anyone in the food industry.  Last year’s attendance topped 65,000.  It also brought in more than $5 million dollars in ticket sales.  The festival benefits FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center.

There are dozens of events all over Miami Beach.  Some of the events are WAYYYY over the top–including tonights “The Q” that celebrates all things grilled, braised and barbecued, and is hosted by celeb chef, Michael Symon.  Tomorrow’s festivities include an Ocean Liner Dinner, hosted and curated by Anthony Bourdain.  On Saturday, there’s a Rocking Beach Party hosted by Emeril Lagasse and Sammy Hagar.  On Sunday there’s a Southern Kitchen Brunch, hosted by Trisha Yearwood.  There is definitely something for everyone at SOBEWFF.

I’ve actually partnered with Buick to give away 2 tickets to the grand daddy of all SOBEWFF events on Saturday, the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village.  This happens right down by the water at 13th & Ocean Drive.  It runs from 11am-6pm and offers all-inclusive bites from Miami’s top restaurants and chefs, endless samplings of fine wine and spirits, along with interactive activities.

Here’s how you win and I’m going to make it really simple.  You can do ANY of the following:

  • Leave a comment below telling me why you want to attend.
  • Shout me out on Twitter at @jewelfigueras.  Your tweet should also include the hashtags #BuickEatandTweet #SOBEWFF

One winner will be selected at random to win 2 tickets.  I’ll announce the winner tomorrow night.  Good luck!

Disclosure:  This ticket giveaway is in partnership with Buick, a SOBEWFF Gold sponsor!  All opinions are my own.

    Hi Jewel! :) First of all – thxs to you, Buick and the Gold Sponsor for the contest. Like many – I am too looking for contests like these because I would like to attend the SBWFF to see Trisha Yearwood. I have been a fan of hers for 20+ years. The event on Sunday is sold out & the cost per ticket (for any event) is out of my budget. I would have enough with access to Trisha Yearwood’s event at the Loews on Sunday. Hope you can help & good luck to all!! :)) Ceci

  4. Elita says:

    I am a total foodie and have never been because after I moved back to FL, I promptly had kids and they’ve been cramping my style ever since. :) Would love to have an excuse to get a baby-sitter and go!

  5. Carla says:

  7. Pam Seabrook says:

  8. Ceci Menendez says:

    Best moments in life revolve around food and wine.

  9. Mauricio says:

    I think i should win the tickets because i’m stressed out at work and getting anxiety attacks. This would be a great way for me to unwind.

  10. I would love to attend because A. Free food, free hotel, free car (One our of three ain’t bad!). B. I desperately need to get out of icky, wet and slushy NYC.

  11. I have never been to the SOBE Wine and Food Festival and as a previous gourmet cook who now prefers to go eat and taste delictable bites, I will be in heaven indulging in delicious food :)

    My husband is a “vegetarian” and he only eats meat when he goes to a wedding/function as his excuse is that the food will all go to waste anyways (he actually loves meat!). I think his excuse is ridiculous; regardless, I know he would love an event like this where he could eat like a normal person and convince himself everything was going to waste. I know he wouldn’t feel guilty about buying the tickets to a non-veg event as I would have won them. Never mind the fact that I could eat like a normal person too! Granted, a very odd and long winded story, but 100% true. So for your consideration, please pick us :) :)!

  13. Throwing my hat in this ring because i’ve lived here for 13 year and IVE NEVER BEEN! I’d love to finally cross that off my bucket list.

  14. Eileen Alkabes says:

    Amazingly I won 2 tickets to Sundays grand tasting but I am out of town and am giving the tickets away to my parents for the foodie adventure of a lifetime ;). I am in town on Saturday with my wife and hoping against all odds that lightning will strike twice, if not I will just have to live vicariously through my parents. Thanks for the great contest!

  20. Leigha says:

    The best part of SOBEWFF is that it’s right in my backyard!

  22. Rochelle Gapere says:

    I have always wanted to attend the SOBE wine & food fest. Sadly, I remember too late and the events are sold out. Maybe this time Luck is on my side.

  26. Sandi Magder says:

    The Sobe Wine and Food festival is a staple event for Miami and is a fabulous showcase of the talents and artistry of both celebrity chefs and our local Miami culinary scene. I’ve lived in South Florida for over 10 years and have yet to attend. It’s something I’d love to take time out of my busy schedule to experience. I would LOVE to win these tickets!

  27. Leah Arluk says:

    I would love to go to the #sobewff grand tasting because it’s the BEST of all events! All encompassing and the place to see & be seen! #buickeatandtweet

    I’ve lived in South Florida for just over a year and this is one event that I always wanted to go to (even when I didn’t live here)! Plus, I am a loyal fan of Food Network. It is always on in my house!! :)

  29. Rachel Tabacnic says:

    Jewel – Thanks so much for giving your dedicated fans a way to check out the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. It has always been a dream of mine to attend this event and experience what everyone has been talking about from past years. If I got the chance to attend the show I’d bring along one of my dear friends who is also a foodie, who is in desperate need of letting loose due to a crazy schedule. xoxox @PRDivaRach

  30. Hi pretty lady! I want to win the tickets so bad! It’s my 10 year anniversary this weekend and I’ve never been. PS. Have I ever told you that I love you?

  31. I have been dreaming of being able to go to Sobe Wine & Food Fest for years!

  32. I’d like to go to highlight how anyone (no matter what their dietary choices, needs, or desires) can enjoy SoBeWFF. I often hear that people say how it’s soooo hard to eat plant-based and socialize. I completely disagree. This event and what I share from it, will show that.

    Have never been! Would love to experience what everyone is talking about
