This year’s festival will feature more than 45 purveyors of your favorite – or soon to be favorite – foods, wines and other beverages. You’ll sample beloved palate pleasers from previous festivals along with inspired new entries to the local dining scene. A greater and more varied selection of sips – including non-alcoholic options – will be on hand ensuring that there’s something for everyone at this family-friendly, dog-friendly event.

Benefit – 100% of the proceeds support Friends of Jupiter Beach. Founded in 1994, Friends of Jupiter Beach (FJB) is a grassroots, volunteer-driven nonprofit community service organization that works to keep Jupiter Beach clean and dog-friendly. Since the group began recording garbage weight in 2006, FJB has collected and saved more than 64,000 lbs. of garbage and recyclables from Jupiter Beach.
