Event Details

We are excited to announce that the 16th Annual Forks & Corks Food and Wine Festival presented by Audi Sarasota and Suncoast Porsche will take place from Thursday, April 20 through Sunday, April 23, 2023.

Forks & Corks’ most sought-after ticket is The Grand Tasting, which takes place in the iconic courtyard and greenspace of the world-renowned Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. Guests savor delicious dishes presented by over 40 Members of the Sarasota-Manatee Originals restaurant group and sample from a collection of more than 300 wines from across the globe – all hand-selected and professionally tasted, then judged and recognized as medal winners. There is live musical entertainment, and a wine retail tent is also available, where patrons can purchase the various wines, making Forks & Corks one of only a few festivals in the Southeast to provide the opportunity to purchase varietals onsite that were showcased during the event.

This year’s Grand Tasting features wineries that are crowd-favorites plus over a dozen new brands that have never been shown in Sarasota before! Guests will enjoy still, sparkling and fortified wines, sakes, a selection of beers and so much more.

Ticket sales begin January 12 at 7pm (premium tickets only, which includes Early Access and VIP ticket levels; includes champagne reception at 11am.) General Admission goes on sale January 19 at 7pm, and is expected to sell out VERY quickly. Visit our Festival page for all ticket bundle details.

The Sarasota-Manatee Originals are a collaborative of independently owned restaurants and culinary innovators committed to uniting the energies of local restaurants and celebrating the food that’s indigenous to our Gulf-coastal lifestyle. Forks & Corks is the organization’s largest annual community event and fundraiser.
