Cows ‘n Cabs Premier Culinary Festival in Winter Park


Celebrating its five-year anniversary, Central Florida’s premier culinary festival, Cows ‘n Cabs, a charity-based event curated by ABC Fine Wine & Spirits’ David Larue and celebrated Chef John Rivers of 4 Rivers Smokehouse is back.


The event is set to return to Winter Park’s West Meadow at 150 North New York Avenue on Saturday, October 24.
The outdoor, Western-themed festival—founded in 2010 with the hope to break the cycle of poverty Central Florida—is anticipating more than 400 guests and is slated to double last year’s donation of $10,000.


One hundred percent of ticket sale proceeds and auction items will benefit the Community Food & Outreach Center and Elevate Orlando, which assists with fighting hunger and mentoring youth, respectively.


Anheuser-Busch, Southern Wine & Spirits and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits will contribute to the evening with more than 200 wines, spirits and craft beers samplings. A selection of gourmet samples will be presented by a group of more than 20 invite-only, local restaurants. 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Soco, Cress and K Restaurant, are among the many that have rubbed shoulders with the James Beard Foundation, while local newcomers include The Osprey Tavern, SLATE and Tapa Toro.


For $140, guests can purchase a VIP ticket and receive a one-hour sneak preview at 6 p.m. General admission tickets priced at $110 grant entrance at 7 p.m. until the festival concludes at 10 p.m.


So come out for a night of Western foodie fun and it’s all for a great charitable cause!
