Great Taste of the Grove Food and Entertainment Guide

Great Taste of the Grove
THousands of people are expected to enjoy a weekend of food, drink, and music in Peacock Park
The Great Taste of the Grove this weekend will celebrate its 22nd year of partying. An array of food, drink, and live music is guaranteed to keep your ears and taste buds occupied.

On Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Coconut Grove's Peacock Park will host the event, showcasing Miami's best restaurants and hundreds of wines and spirits.

The event features a budget-friendly low gate fee of $5 per adult, with children under 12 admitted free. Sadly, Fido is not invited to the party this year, so please leave your pooch at home in air-conditioned comfort (which leaves you with two hands to hold your food and wine glass).

A sommelier tasting area and connoisseur spirits lounge will offer guests the opportunity to sample some of the best wines and spirits on the market, and almost two dozen restaurants will provide food with prices ranging from $1 to $8.

In addition to music and festivities, Taste of the Grove will hold its annual Best of Taste and Best of Presentation contests, with restaurants competing to take the title from the four-year undefeated Panorama restaurant. Participating eateries include:

Taste of the Grove Food & Wine Festival was the biggest waste of money ever (even with the dealtificate deal). You don't call something a "Food & Wine Festival" when there is NO WINE!!!! The food was sub-par and was frankly carnival food. My vegetarian and vegan friends had essentially no options for healthy, veg-friendly fare. We'll never waste our time and money at this event again. We'll stick to the SoBe & Brickell Wine & Food festivals where there are actual food options and WINE to drink.
