You even get the chance to buy the artwork, priced to fit all budgets.
Annual Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival
Foodies look forward to the culinary affair every November. It’s a time to whet your palate and get in the stride of South Florida’s largest outdoor festival. For over a decade, Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival lights the Sanborn Square Park in downtown Boca Raton, and sometimes, the fever reaches the Mizner Park. Chefs all over the country converge in the city bringing with them a gastronomic experience you’ll never get anywhere else. The Grand Tasting, where you get to sip on some of the best wines, starts at 6 PM going all the way to 10 PM. Craft beer lovers are also in for a treat. There’s a special area for the annual Craft Brew Battle serving the rarest beer in the country. If you’re looking for an excuse to down a few beers, grab your tickets early.
Lunch at the Lawn
Mizner Park, Boca Raton’s community gem, welcomes Lunch at the Lawn every Friday. It is time for the whole city to come together and enjoy delicious food accompanied by live music performances. The scenic tropical garden background adds an element of tranquility locals and visitors appreciate. The Mizner Park Amphitheatre gets an upgrade with misting machines creating a surreal atmosphere to enjoy the soft music playing in the background. You don’t need a ticket to attend the event, and you can bring kids along. The event starts at 11 AM but you’ll want to come early if you want to sample some of the delicacies. By 2 PM when the event ends, most of the food trucks are closed.
