The SAiRA Food and Wine Festival is hosted annually by the St. Augustine Independent Restaurant Association (SAiRA) to raise funds for THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club in St. Augustine. The annual event takes place this year on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at St. Augustine's elegant River House on the Historic Bayfront.
The festival showcases culinary specialties from many of the city’s best independent restaurants and wines from around the world. Guests are greeted at the door with a beautiful souvenir wine glass and are then free to browse and enjoy the appetizers, main courses, salads, and desserts provided by SAiRA member restaurants. Over 100 wines are available for sampling, as well as local craft beer and spirits from the St. Augustine Distillery.
The SAiRA Food and Wine Festival also features a silent auction featuring vintage wines, dining gift certificates, chef-prepared private dinners, merchandise from local shops, and more.
Tickets (registration coming soon):
$55 in advance; $65 at-the-door
All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club of St. Augustine.
The event, which was launched in 2009 by Joyce Pease, owner of The Joyful Cork, was transferred to SAiRA’s mantle that same year when Pease closed her boutique wine shop. Since its inception, the event has raised almost $230,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida.
Boys & Girls Club in St. Augustine is proud to announce its continued partnership with SAiRA (St. Augustine Independent Restaurant Association) to create hope and opportunity for youth in our community who need us the most. Proceeds from the event support the time-tested, engaging after-school programs offered at the Club.
Thank you for your support!
