Miami’s original family- friendly food festival, the Great Taste of the Grove Food & Wine Festival, is back and celebrating its 23rd year with a weekend of food, wine, music and fun for the whole family. On Saturday, Apr. 13, and Sunday, Apr. 14, from noon to 7 p.m., Coconut Grove’s picturesque Peacock Park will host the lively event, showcasing samplings from Miami’s best restaurants.
Unlike many food festivals that charge large entrance fees at the door, the Great Taste of the Grove remains budget-friendly for families. At only $10 for adults to get in and $5 for kids under 12 (free for kids under 3), attendees can sample tastes from nearly 20 restaurants in the three giant “Great Tasting Tents” for only $1-$8 per small plate
