There's much to do at Iron Fork. Of course, there will be lots of noshing on the best bites offered by dozens of restaurants, as well as sipping libations. But there's also entertainment, including the totally awesome Iron Fork chef competition.
If you haven't bought tickets yet, here are five reasons for you to jump on them now.
5. The Heritage Area
The Iron Fork Miami Spice Kickoff features a heritage area showcase, with food and entertainment from restaurants in Miami's most historical and culturally diverse neighborhoods. You can enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Little Havana, Little Haiti, historic Overtown, and Coconut Grove Village West in one evening.
4. The Silent Auction
For the first time, Iron Fork will host a silent auction, with all proceeds benefiting Share Our Strength. Bid on cool items like a Brew Bus experience for two, brunch for two at Zuma, a one-year membership to Lock & Load, and tickets to Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias in concert. Amazing items for a good cause. Win-win!
