Vanessa James, an Entrepreneur and Cultural Ambassador with deep Caribbean roots, a vast knowledge of the diaspora and it’s landscape of opportunities has created an all-inclusive culinary & music experience that celebrates the vibrant tapestry of Caribbean culture in a lavish styled affair. Her inaugural event Food, Wine, and Fete, the all-inclusive SOCA fete will be beachside at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park’s Orange Pavilion(4020 Virginia Beach Dr, Miami, FL 33149) on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 3 pm-9 pm.

“I felt this was the right time to introduce and bring to market Food, Wine and Fete to an already vibrant and motivated Caribbean community. I hope the event will only amplify the multicultural tapestry of Miami and beyond,” states Vanessa James, event founder.

Attendees will have the opportunity to indulge in an array of savory Caribbean dishes, cultural light bites, perfectly blended cocktails, and wine pairings to delight the senses, while infectious sounds and insatiable vibes of Soca music electrifies their waistlines.
