We're pleased to invite you to the 2017 Orange Bowl Food & Wine Celebration on May 19, 2017, 6:30 PM at the Broward County Convention Center. Join CBS4's Entertainment & Lifestyle Reporter Lisa Petrillo at this extraordinary culinary event featuring some of the best South Florida chefs.

Previously known as the OBIEs, 2014 was the first food & wine culinary experience and it was a tremendous success! The 2014 Celebrity Chef Norman Van Aken headlined a group that included Michael Schwartz’s Harry’s Pizzeria and pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith, Fabio Viviani, Ralph Pagano, Paula DaSilva, Howie Kleinberg, YOLO, S3, Steak 954, and more! Last year’s lineup included two (2) James Beard Foundation Winners, two (2) additional James Beard Foundation Nominated chefs, two (2) Hell's Kitchen Contestants and two (2) Top Chef Contestants.

The 2015 event benefiting Make A Wish, Special Olympics and Orange Bowl Leadership Academy took place on Friday, May 29 at the Broward County Convention Center. It featured a night of extraordinary food, entertainment and giving as we celebrated those individuals who share Orange Bowl’s values in giving back to the South Florida community. More than 25 of the top South Florida restaurants and chefs had the opportunity to provide tastings and optional pairings. A panel of judges comprised of South Florida’s top foodies and culinary celebs voted to determine a Miami-Dade County restaurant winner, a Broward County restaurant winner, a dessert winner and an overall “Flavor of South Florida” winner. In addition, each event attendee also had a chance to cast their vote to award the People’s Choice Award winner!

In 2016, James Beard Award-winning chef/restaurateur Michael Schwartz headlined as the Celebrity Chef, while healthy lifestyle crusader, author and James Beard Award-winning chef, Rocco DiSpirito, made a celebrity chef guest appearance! Schwartz and his restuarant Harry's Pizzeria won the overall "Flavor of South Florida" and "Best Miami-Dade Restaurant," while over 30 restaurants and vendors from all across South Florida delighted guests all night long.
Over the years, the Orange Bowl has been able to invest millions of dollars in the South Florida youth and sports through support of intercollegiate athletics, education, events, organizations and causes, in addition to the tremendous economic impact it provides. At last year’s event, approximately $100,000 was given back to the South Florida community.

Proceeds for the Orange Bowl Food & Wine Celebration go toward the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, Special Olympics Florida and the Orange Bowl the Leadership Academy.
General Admission: $95 per person VIP: $225 per person
