Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival returns for second year, headlining stellar Burgers, Brews & Blues party on March 29


The Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival returns for its second annual party across Fort Worth and includes one of my favorite Cowtown events, Burgers, Brews & Blues, a burger festival that pairs eleven of the region’s top burgers with 22 of Tarrant County’s best craft breweries. The setting, a canopied clearing on ranch land, is an exceptional spot to watch the sun set and enjoy the live blues band lineup of James Hinkle, the Chris Watson Band and the Michael Lee Clemmer Band.

Dozens of local burger joints and breweries will serve sliders and microbrews to a sell-out crowd of a few hundred, just like last year (pictured above). Each burger stand will be bookended by a beer stand. Admission tickets includes unlimited samples of burgers, brews and live blues music.

“We couldn’t have had better weather or a happier group of people,” Russell Kirkpatrick, the FWFWF’s director, told me last year while we munched on burgers from chefs that included AF+B’s Jeff Harris.

And this year looks to be equally tasty. But, then, so does the rest of the event lineup, from the BBQ fest at Billy Bob’s on Thursday, March 26, to the Grand Tasting wine-and-dine event on Friday, March 27, to a food truck celebration on Sunday, March 29.

Kirkpatrick’s excited that Dallas will be representing strongly again at the Grand Tasting, sending word that “Michael and Kyle from Proof + Pantry, Danielle from Remedy, and Scott Gottlich from The 2nd Floor” will all be serving bites, and Lockhart Smokehouse will be serving at the Billy Bob’s event.”

Tickets are available for individual events or an entire festival package.
