Taste of the Republic is the culinary VIP party as part of the Fiesta 2018 kickoff, Fiesta Fiesta at Hemisfair. VIP passes $75 before event. $100 at the door — if passes remain.
Mingle with Fiesta Royalty while enjoying fabulous food, great wine, and dazzling fireworks in an exclusive, VIP setting. More than a dozen talented local chefs will explore their expression of the six regional flavors of Texas. Each culinary delight will be expertly paired with a wine tasting. Beer and spirits will also be available to enhance your VIP Fiesta experience. The event will likely sell out, so purchase your VIP pass now to ensure you will be able to join Chef West and his friends.
