Join as we transform the Citizen’s Circle in Downtown Ocala into the Grand Tasting in culmination of the four-day festival. A casual affair that allows participants to enjoy live music, mingle with like-minded foodies, chefs, winemakers, mixologists, and culinary vendors. For one price, you’ll enjoy many choices of delicious food, wine, beer and spirits.  It’s a not to be missed event.


This year we pay homage to Anthony Bourdain and his influence on the food industry. Festival chefs have been invited to serve food inspired by Anthony Bourdain’s travels, unique attitude, and passion for trying new flavors.


All proceeds benefit Ocala Culinary Festival Charities, a non-profit focused on improving culinary education and fighting hunger in Marion County.
