The Grand Tasting is the centerpiece of the Festival, and with good reason! Where else can you taste signature dishes from over 50 of St. Pete and the Bay Area's top chefs? Tangerine-smoked Florida grouper, Jamaican jerk chicken, Soy-ginger glazed pork belly and Portobello goat cheese pizza are just a few of the treats that await you at this gourmet extravaganza. And the bayside setting for this fresh-air tasting couldn't be more beautiful. To top off the experience, fine wines and spirits will be poured.

VIP tickets grant access to the HSN VIP tent, where you can try additional food & beverage samples and rub elbows with international celebrity chefs.

PLUS, get a chance to meet Tampa Bay Rowdies soccer players Keith Savage and Stuart Campbell!

Walk-around tasting (ticket price is all-inclusive).
