Savor Dallas Returns for its 14th Annual Festival

It must be the year of the foodie because Savor Dallas announced more than ten events this year featuring a few of our favorite things: BBQ, brunch, wine, and music. From May 14th-20th, food lovers can taste smoked meats from Cattleback Barbeque at an event called “Cue it up” and rub shoulders with well-known Dallas chefs at the Grand Tasting. Savor is one of Dallas’ unique annual festival, putting chefs, bartenders, sommeliers and diners at the same table.

Food for a cause

Part of Savor Dallas’ mission is to support charitable causes, and last year they collected $20,000 for Cafe’ Momentum,  a Dallas-based restaurant and culinary training facility, that transforms young people’s lives by providing a positive environment in which at-risk youth who have spent time in juvenile facilities receive intensive culinary, job and life-skill training, as well as continued mentorship and support, enabling them to achieve their full potential.

This year, Cafe Momentum’s Chad Houser and Paige Chenault of The Birthday Party Project (which celebrates birthdays for children who are homeless) are this year’s festival co-chairs, making even attending the event a great way to give back to your community.  

Savor Dallas is one of the hottest tickets in town – and our sponsors know it. It’s a great opportunity for a brand to be seen by DFW food and wine connoisseurs; this year’s sponsors already include Chase, Goody Goody, Modelo, Southwest Kia, Sprint, Wholefoods, Lifeway, ROXOR, Downtown Dallas Inc, See’s candies and Westrock coffee company.
