The Vero Beach Outlets hosts the newest in-season addition from the team that created the award-winning Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival: VBWFF WEST – Best of Fest. Spend the weekend in the dark, February 28 – March 1, 2020, watching award-winning American and international independent films. Fest goers will also be treated to world class wine tastings pre and post-film screenings. Enjoy the convenience of binge watching at the Treasure Coast’s first walkable film fest.
The Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival celebrates 5 years of connecting artists and audiences to create inspired action. “The Push,” an inspirational documentary about the power of never giving up, is one of the 50 Award-winning, must-see independent films to be screened. The film tells the story of Grant Korgan, a world-class adventurer, nano-mechanics professional, and husband, who became the first spinal cord injured athlete to literally PUSH himself the nearly 100 miles to the geographic South Pole. Shop at the outlets and see narrative features and comedy shorts, rarely available at the local multiplex, during the full-bodied weekend of film.
Also, on board, Bravo TV’s Chef Ben Robinson brings his “Below Decks” deliciousness to the Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival’s newest offering, VBWFF WEST – Best of Fest at the Vero Beach Outlets, February 28 – March 1, 2020. Known for his flamboyant fare, British charm and boyish good looks, he can usually be seen cooking on the high seas on Below Deck. His culinary talents will kick off the festival at a private meet and greet experience at RH (Restoration Hardware) on the evening of February 28. On Saturday and Sunday outlet shoppers and fest goers will experience a variety of food and wine pairings presented by Florida’s top culinary innovators. Passes available at VBWFF.COM.
