Showcasing Central Florida’s most-renowned chefs, restaurants and breweries, the second annual Cocoa Beach Uncorked Food and Wine Festival takes place April 28-29 at Alan Shepard Park.
The two-day celebration of food, wine and craft beer offers attendees a chance to indulge in the finest tastes the region has to offer, while unwinding along Cocoa Beach’s spectacular oceanfront.
Doors open Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. for general admission ticket holders. VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to enter one hour earlier and exclusively experience the Moet & Chandon bubbly bar in the Grand Tasting Village, where they also can have access to additional seating for relaxation and mingling.
Guests at the 2018 festival will be treated to a variety of interactive experiences, tastings, and cooking demonstrations and competitions, as well as a special appearance by celebrity chef and cookbook author Doreen Colondres.
“Cocoa Beach Uncorked provides attendees a delicious culinary experience that highlights the different cuisines the Space Coast has to offer,” said Eric Garvey, Executive Director of Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism. “After a successful inaugural event a year ago, we look forward to further spotlighting the area’s culinary scene. And there’s no better place to enjoy some sweeping Atlantic views while sampling all this magnificent food, wine and beer.”
“Cocoa Beach last year was the ideal launching pad for the first ‘Uncorked’ festival on Florida’s East Coast,” said Tammy Gail, the event’s producer. “This is a one-of-a-kind showcase for the culinary treasures of this region. We’re excited to be back for another unforgettable weekend and we look forward to a sellout event.”
Cocoa Beach Uncorked is sponsored by Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, the City of Cocoa Beach, Publix, and the Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront hotel. General admission tickets for each day of the event are available for $55 per person, while VIP tickets for each day are $75 per person.
