Kicking off the 2023-2024 foundation event season on November 8 is the “Far Out Feast,” a culinary extravaganza like none other. Hosted at the prestigious Fort Worth Club, this exclusive seated dinner will celebrate the culinary mastery of the powerhouse chef team Felipe Armenta and Graham Elliot of FAR Out Hospitality. This delectable event is more than fine dining; it’s a celebration of the 2023 Walter F. Kaufmann Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, The Renfro Family. This prestigious honor, reserved for those who embody the integrity, achievements, and standards set by the beloved Fort Worth Chef Walter, is the perfect fit for The Renfro Family, with their illustrious 80-year history and a brand deeply rooted in Fort Worth. Previous recipients of the award have included beloved chef Jon Bonnell, the late Renie Stevens, and the Anfin Family. 

Night Market, previously held at Whiskey Ranch as part of the spring festival experience, is now a part of the fall lineup. Attendees can stroll through this street-market-inspired experience on Thursday, November 30, at Panther Island Pavilion. As a special treat, FWFWF aficionados can jumpstart their holiday shopping with the best gift in town, as Night Market attendees will be given exclusive first access to ticket sales for the 2024 Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival.
