Food, wines, demos on tap for Plano’s free Food & Wine Festival this Saturday

The second-annual Plano Food and Wine Festival kicks off this Saturday, Oct. 5 at The District at The Shops at Willow Bend. The event takes place from 2-7 p.m. and will feature samples of more than 100 wines, 25 local restaurants and food trucks, live music, craft beers and cocktails, culinary demonstrations and 60 boutiques and shops.

“The Plano Food and Wine Festival is a collection of the best that Plano has to offer,” said event organizer Lauren Stephan. “From neighborhood restaurants and top-notch wine selections to exciting live entertainment and local boutiques, community members and guests will get a taste of it all while enjoying the inviting outdoor Willow Bend atmosphere.”

In addition to live music, entertainment will include grape stomping competitions plus culinary and mixology demonstrations from regional chefs.

Knife, Mexican Bar Co., Whistle Britches and Terra Mediterranean, California Pizza Kitchen and Neiman Marcus’ Mariposa will also offer food and drink samples.

Admission to the festival is free and open to all ages and leashed dogs. Food and wine tasting packages start at $20 and can be purchased here, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
