Local foodies, wine connoisseurs, and craft beer enthusiasts are invited to SAVOR ST. PETE’s tenth-anniversary celebration on November 5–6 in downtown St. Petersburg. The two-day festival will once again feature an award-winning culinary showcase of the Bay area’s celebrated chefs, popular breweries, acclaimed restaurants, and an outstanding selection of wines, all within the impressive Grand Tasting Village. North Straub Park, where the festival is held, overlooks breathtaking Tampa Bay. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of VIP and General Admission tickets will go to regional charities.

To celebrate 10 wonderful years, SAVOR ST. PETE will cheer with eventgoers, debuting the following:

  • The Pier Punch – the official new SAVOR cocktail created by Publix Aprons Cooking School
  • Interactive mixology sessions on the event cooking stage 
  • 10 Days to SAVOR (October 26 – November 4) – a new Instagram contest where 10 lucky followers will have the chance to win amazing swag from participating festival vendors

“SAVOR ST. PETE is thrilled to have reached this significant milestone, and we are truly humbled by the outpour of support from the community these last 10 years,” said Tammy Gail, festival founder and producer. “Every year, we continue to provide proceeds to local charities in each market where we produce SAVOR events. We’re excited to deliver our best event yet, and look forward to showcasing new activations, culinary offerings, and more excitement this fall.”
