Food options in Las Vegas are almost endless and this weekend, Sin City is getting invaded by two massive food festivals to add to those endless offerings. The Great American Foodie Fest and Vegas Uncork’d are running all weekend on opposite sides of town, with fairly opposite vibes.
The more casual Great American Foodie Fest runs from April 27-30 at Sunset Station Hotel Casino. The GAFF has been ranked as top food festivals by both Telegraph Travel and Cardbull.com, as well as earning The Best of Vegas honors for four straight years, dating back to 2013.
This year’s festival will showcase some of the nation’s best foods featured on Food Network, Cooking Channel and Travel Channel. Shaun O’Neale, winner of Master Chef – Season 7 on FOX and Chopped Junior – Season 3 champion Jack Pollock make appearances as celebrity chefs and festival goers will have over 50 different options of food trucks and specialty vendors to choose from, along with a beer garden and live musical entertainment.
The more upscale food festival is running on the strip, as Vegas Uncork’d hits Caesars Palace, The Cosmopolitan, The Venetian and all MGM Resorts properties, Bellagio and ARIA. Vegas Uncork’d is the premier culinary and wine event in Las Vegas and is on an unparalleled scale. The festival offers one-of-a-kind experiences over the same four days as the GAFF and features some of the biggest names and personalities in the culinary world.
Bobby Flay, who is hosting a brunch on Saturday, will be in attendance, along with Giada De Laurentiis, Gordon Ramsey, sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa and many more. There are also mixology events, tasting, parties and other events up and down the strip.
Regardless of what your food cravings are this weekend, Las Vegas has something for everyone and more information about the Great American Foodie Fest and Vegas Uncork’d can be found on their websites.
