On Friday, April 11, the popular Interactive Dinner will take place at the newly renovated Intercontinental Miami. The ambiance is lively at this one-of-a-kind dinner, the ultimate good time for foodies. An energetic crowd of more than 600 guests bravely sport cooking aprons and toques as they prepare three-course meals, under the direction of a top celebrity chef and the help of hundreds of talented Johnson & Wales University students serving as sous chefs.

On Saturday, April 12, VERITAGEMIAMI will culminate with an Auction and Wine Dinner, at one of the festival’s most unique outdoor venues to date - Marlins Park. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour overlooking the downtown Miami skyline, followed by a dinner and a fabulous live auction on the diamond.
