Support the Tarrant County culinary community during the week of Oct. 19-25. The Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is organizing a weeklong celebration called EAT. DRINK. COWTOWN., during which patrons can enjoy curbside or delivery specials, unique pairings and more from participating restaurants and bars.

EAT. DRINK. COWTOWN. is taking place of the postponed 2020 Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival,” said Julie Eastman, executive director. “We’re showcasing all the good things to eat and drink around town and remind the community how incredible our local restaurants and bars are. We’re highlighting the robust talent and hospitality in Cowtown, inviting patrons to visit as many local restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries and wineries as safely as possible. We’re all in this together, and we’re strong because we’re locals supporting locals.”

Participants are creating special deals for EAT. DRINK. COWTOWN. week. They’ve devised daily offerings, inventive food-and-drink pairings or new to-go family meals that patrons can have delivered or pick up curbside.

“The pandemic has been particularly cruel to the service industry, and we want to take a moment to support them for all they do for the festival, for local patrons, for nonprofit events year in and year out. Now is the time to let your local restaurants and bars know that you want them to stick around,” said Russell Kirkpatrick, festival cofounder.
