Bon Appetit in Miami during the Seed Food & Wine Festival

With the meteoric rise of the Impossible Burger and Beyond Meat, more and more people have become interested in a plant-based diet. If your curiosity can only be matched by your appetite, there’s an event coming up that you need to check out.

 

This year’s annual Seed Food and Wine Miami takes place Thursday, November 7 through Sunday, November 10, in downtown Miami, Florida. Your weekend will be packed with events like sunrise yoga, demonstrations on urban gardening, and other workshops. Other events include panel conversations about current topics, as well as a start-up pitch off focusing on small businesses making changes in agricultural industries both locally and nationally.

 

Getting tickets is easy. You can purchase tickets via the Seed Food and Wine Festival website, either for individual events or as a weekend pass. Many events are free to attend, as well! You should start planning early because some events like the Veggie Burger Battle will draw a crowd and sell out quickly. Featuring celebrity judges, craft beer pairings, and live music, the battle will also let the crowd vote for the Best Veggie Burger in America!

 

One of the best things about the Seed Food and Wine Festival is their dedication to and consideration of the environment in everything from their choice of locations to the food and wine that will be served. The festival even caters to families with children, offering events specifically for children and parents to attend.

 

Other Things to See and Do

While the Seed Food and Wine Festival will surely keep you busy, there are so many other attractions that Miami has to offer. Just north of the Wynwood neighborhood (the central location for the festival) is Little Haiti, which features a wonderful mix of Caribbean culture. You can spend all day browsing independent art galleries, record stores, handcrafted goods, and museums.

 

Families can go explore and enjoy the outdoor garden oasis of the Enchanted Forest at Elaine Gordon Park. This 22-acre city garden space is a great way to wind down after a day of events. The Pérez Art Museum Miami is another great afternoon or morning activity just south of the Wynwood neighborhood and features modern and contemporary art.

 

Also nearby is the Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center located inside the Little Havana neighborhood. This free museum is focused around experiencing music and dance. It also features a frequently-rotated curation of goods and art from pre-revolution Cuban artists. Also located within the Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center is a full bar, known for being well-stocked with various rums.

 

Planning Ahead is Important

The Seed Feed and Wine Festival is an ultimate experience for environmentally conscious and sustainably-minded individuals and families. Every year, it attracts visitors to Miami from all over the country.

 

Because of this popularity, booking your tickets and accommodations early is highly recommended. Hotels in Miami can be hard to get into and staying close to the event is also essential. The Hyatt Place Miami Airport-East is just outside the airport, but also just down the road from the Wynwood neighborhood where the Seed Food and Wine Festival is held. It’s an upscale accommodation with sleek rooms, free Wi-Fi, and a lovely outdoor pool. If you want to stay even closer, the Real Living Hotel Residences is right in the heart of Wynwood. You can walk right to the Seed Food & Wine Festival each day, and then explore the artsy neighborhood each evening.
