Taste! CFL - Orlando World Center Marriott

Taste! Central Florida is returning to the Orlando World Center Marriott on August 18, 2023, and if you love food, you’ll want to grab a ticket to attend this year’s Taste! CFL.

Taste! Central Florida is one of Orlando’s premier food and beverage events, and it also raises funds to fight childhood hunger and homelessness throughout the Central Florida community.

Chefs and partners from more than 40 local restaurants will prepare small plates of their finest dishes for guests. Plus there will be a variety of beer, wine and cocktail samples, along with non-alcoholic options, from some of Orlando’s top beverage vendors.

The evening will also include live entertainment, and a silent auction which in the past has had amazing prizes ranging from gift baskets to wine collections to hotel stays.

Tickets to the 2023 Taste! CFL event are $200 per person, and included unlimited food and beverage samples. They can be purchased at TasteCFL.org.

The Orlando World Center Marriott is also offering special rates for the evening to guests attending the event. But hurry…the discounted rate ends July 27, 2023.

All event proceeds from Taste! Central Florida benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, remaining in the community to help provide much needed food for children and families experiencing hunger in Central Florida.

In its 30+ year history, Taste! Central Florida has raised over 4 million dollars which has provided over 16 million meals to those facing hunger.

Great food and drink for a great cause…sounds like a win-win to me! I’ll be there – I hope you will be, too!
