Chefs For Farmers Food & Wine, the annual food and wine festival in North Texas, announced several upcoming events that will be taking place before the festival's main attraction between Nov. 2-4, 2023.
There are a total of five events (two of which have sold out already) scheduled to take place throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and will all serve as appetizers to the festival’s main course, the Chefs For Farmers Main Event, which will be occurring on Nov. 5 at Old City Park in Dallas.
On Thursday, Nov. 2, LVI at The Statler (Dallas steakhouse) will be hosting an elevated dining experience, where guests will get the opportunity to immerse their taste buds in a delectable array of gourmet dishes.
The following day on Friday, Nov. 3, Old Quail Run Farm (Sherman-based homestead) will showcase a number of talented chefs as they prepare flavorful dishes for guests, using fresh ingredients from local farms.
Taking place on Sunday, Nov. 4, are a pair of North Texas events that hungry residents will definitely want to take part in. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Hattie B’s in Dallas will be offering an elevated hot chicken dining experience, paired with various fine wines and specially-curated cocktails throughout the day to soothe the heat. Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Chefs For Farmers will be hosting a Texas farm tour, with the proceeds from the event going towards supporting nonprofit organization, McKinney Roots.
Throughout the day, guests will ride a luxury coach bus and tour numerous farms located in Lucas, Van Alstyne and McKinney — each stop providing food and adult beverages to be enjoyed by all in attendance.
Finally, on Nov. 5, is the Chefs For Farmers Main Event, which will cap off the festivities.
From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., attendees will get the chance to sample farm-fresh food and refreshing beverages, check out live cooking demonstrations, enjoy various live entertainment and more.
Established in 2010, the Chefs For Farmers Food & Wine Festival aims to spotlight the local culinary scene and strengthen the future of North Texas’ sustainable food system.
"Chefs For Farmers was built to showcase the culinary prowess of our state’s finest chefs, farmers, and food artisans with an emphasis on sustainability,” said Iris Midler, founder of Chefs For Farmers. "Our festival is the only place where you will see the farmers side-by-side with the chefs who transform their food, creating dishes uniquely representing this exact time and place."
