Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by Boca Bacchanal Wine & Food Festival and the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum. I received complimentary tickets in exchange for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. Photos have been provided by the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum.

Boca Bacchanal returns for its 17th year April 4th through the 6th, bringing together world class chefs, vintners, and local restaurants to provide guests with a one-of-a-kind food and wine experience, benefiting the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum.

100% of the proceeds from Boca Bacchanal ticket purchases go directly toward funding the Historical Society’s innovative and diverse heritage education programs for residents, students, and visitors. These programs are now serving upwards of 1200 school children each year, with impactful experiences in historic locations.

Each year, thousands of South Florida residents and visitors come out for this weekend event — but this year, it’s going to be better than ever. What used to be a two-night festival has expanded into three, and two new events have been added to the schedule. The festival’s location has also changed to exclusively being held at the iconic Boca Raton Resort & Club. Tickets can be purchased for all events separately, and there are bundled options available as well.

Here’s the line up:

  • Bubbles & Burgers
    What: Guests will have the opportunity to meet the featured chefs for the 2019 Boca Bacchanal, while enjoying an array of specialty burgers and a variety of sparkling and still wines. The featured Champagne for the evening will be Taittinger.

Boca Bacchanal holds a special place in my heart, as it was the very first food event I got involved it when I moved here in 2011. I’ve never missed it, and I hope I never will. The food and wine is always top-notch, and the atmosphere is vibrant. I am especially excited for this year’s location change to the Boca Resort, and can’t wait to see what all the chefs and restaurants impress us with.

This is the must-attend Boca event of the season, so don’t miss out! Tickets are available for purchase online at Boca Bacchanal, by calling the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum at 561.395.6766, Ext.101, or in person at their office at 71 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton.
