The Hallandale Beach Food and Groove Festival is an annual event that sets our city apart! For the past three years, the Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (HBCRA) has teamed up with the South Beach Food and Wine Festival to produce this culinary experience of fining dining, dancing, and fun!


The South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) brand partnered with the HBRCA for the first time in 2020 to produce the Hallandale Beach Food and Groove Festival, which has seen become an annual mainstay of the City. The event includes the participation of dozens of Hallandale Beach’s restaurants and chefs along with bands, disc jockeys, cocktail stands, and a variety of artists and entertainers. In February 2022, the Food and Groove Festival returned with great fanfare, serving over 1,000 attendees at the Gulfstream Park.


This year also saw the presentation of Best of Show awards for participating restaurants at the event. Restaurants had the opportunity to win first, second, or third-place awards. These awards will be based on presentation (the visual appeal of how your cuisine is arranged on each plate, cup, or bowl), uniqueness (the originality of your culinary creation), and of course tastiness!  Prizes were awarded were awarded to Dr. Limon (1st Place), Dunns River Island Café (2nd Place) and Ceviche Avenue (3rd Place). The contest was judged by a panel of three judges. The Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency looks forward to producing an even bigger and better even in 2023 with a new themes, contests, and features.
