The countdown has begun for one of Cocoa Beach’s most anticipated food festivals. The second annual Cocoa Beach Uncorked will take place later this month. And though this is only Uncorked’s second festival in Cocoa Beach, its sister festival in Clearwater Beach is in its seventh year, and is well-known as one of the best food, wine and craft beer festivals on Florida’s west coast.

The two-day Cocoa festival will feature a selection of food, wine and craft beer on the sandy shores of Florida’s Space Coast. The Alan Shepard Park location is a popular area for viewing space launches.

“Cocoa Beach proved to be an ideal launching pad for Uncorked as a one-of-a-kind showcase of the culinary treasures on Florida’s east coast,” said Uncorked Event Producer Tammy Gail. “We’re excited to be back on Cocoa Beach for another unforgettable weekend and look forward to welcoming attendees, partners and exhibitors back for another sellout event.”

Cocoa Beach Uncorked will also feature special appearances by celebrity chef and active social media personality Doreen Colondres, who is also the cookbook author of “The Kitchen Doesn’t Bite” and “La Cocina No Muerde.”

Tickets for the festival are $55 per person, per day for general admission. VIP tickets are $75 per person, per day. VIP tickets include one-hour early admission to the grand Tasting Village, plus interactive experiences, tastings, cooking demonstrations, competitions between some of the area’s most notable and award-winning chefs and restaurants, and more.

Cocoa Beach Uncorked is backed by sponsors including Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, City of Cocoa Beach, Publix and Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront.
