Fort Worth’s Tastiest Weekend Returns, Festival Tickets on Sale December 1

The Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation announced today major additions to the annual Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival (March 30 – April 2, 2023) alongside ticket information and an on-sale date of December 1, 2022. Building on the success of the 2022 festival return during which the annual event welcomed more than 7,000 foodies to experience the best cuisine North Texas has to offer, the 2023 four-day foodie extravaganza is expanding to welcome even more participants and attendees to the Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork. Beginning March 30, 2023, 13-acres of the historic ranch will be transformed into an alfresco dining paradise including large scale pop-up tents that showcase more than 100 chefs, restaurateurs, and beverage participants in a revelry of culinary delights. 

The annual spring celebration, produced each year by the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation, seeks to continue its mission of elevating and uplifting gifted, local talent through collaboration and alignment with top-notch, nationally recognized culinary personalities in a variety of special dinners and unique event activations.

In 2023, the foundation will host exclusive, limited-seating collaborative dining experiences that will enrapture guests. For gourmands seeking an ultimate VIP experience, Garden & Gun alongside Visit Fort Worth and FWFWF will join forces to bring an unparalleled brunch event to the 2023 festival. Set in a secret location only accessible by private shuttle, the farm-fresh affair will bring to the table three nationally recognized Southern chefs to create one unforgettable menu. James Beard Semi-Finalist (2020) Molly McCook of Ellerbe Fine Foods, Jon Bonnell of Bonnell’s Restaurant Group and seven-time James Beard Semi-Finalist David Bancroft of Acre and Bow & Arrow BBQ will work together to develop and serve a multi course pre-fixe menu rooted in the flavors of the American South. 

When asked about the new Festival changes and additions, FWFWF Executive Director Julie Eastman said, “Our dedicated patrons and supporters have shown us they are ready for more! From our sold-out events to the amazing feedback on last year’s specialty dinner, we knew we needed to bring even more in 2023! To top it off, the partnership with Garden & Gun and Visit Fort Worth marks a major milestone for our Foundation. It proves that people are taking note of the culinary community in North Texas and that the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is becoming a true designation for foodies across the nation! We couldn’t be more excited for what is on the menu this upcoming year”
