Downtown St. Pete is already a hub for fine wine, great eats and beautiful waterfront views—but next weekend's foodie festival brings all three of those things together.

The 10th installment of Savor St. Pete, a local food and wine fest, transforms North Straub Park into a 25,000 square-foot culinary destination Saturday-Sunday Nov. 5-6.

Pinellas-based restaurants dishing eats at next weekend’s festival include 400 Beach Seafood & Taphouse, Bavaro's, Bolay, Sculley's, Tijuana Flats, Tryst and the recently-opened Beach Drive eatery Alello—among many more.
General admission tickets run for a hefty $95, but give guests access to unlimited food, beer and wine samples from some of the most popular restaurants, chefs, breweries and wineries in Tampa Bay—in addition to swag from the festival's sponsors. VIP tickets cost $125, but come with earlier access and a private tent to enjoy your food and wine in. 

The entire event runs from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. both days, but how fast you consume your unlimited amount of samples is totally up to you. 

All tickets can be purchased via, although the VIP tier for Nov. 5 is already sold out.  In addition to unlimited food and drink samples, attendees will also have the chance to learn from different mixology sessions and cooking demonstrations taking place  throughout the festival.

In honor of its 10th anniversary, Savor St. Pete is also hosting various Instagram contests, where lucky winners can go home with gift cards to local restaurants or boozy gift baskets.
