Latin Food & Wine Festival is Saturday

Written By Scott Joseph On October 17, 2014


I’m honored to once again be serving as emcee for this evening’s Savor the Night event, this year sharing duties with the indefatigable Jorge Estevez of WFTV. Savor the Night is the kickoff to the Latin Food & Wine Festival, sponsored by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando.

Tonight’s event is sold out, but Saturday’s main event is not, mainly because there are no tickets to buy. It’s a free event (parking, too) and takes place from 3 until 9 p.m. at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs.

Since you get in free, the food and drink samples are sold separately. There will be plenty of live music, undoubtedly some dancing, and generally good times. And, of course, wonderful Latin cuisine. See below for a list of vendors.

If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket to tonight’s event, which is from 6:30 until 10 p.m., also at Cranes Roost Park, please stop by and say hello (although I’ll be frantically running around trying to keep up with Jorge).
