The nation’s premiere plant-based extravaganza — SEED Food and Wine Festival is coming back to Miami for its seventh year from November 3rd through 7th, 2021 coinciding with World Vegan Month.

After a year-long hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, SEED Week is back with a bang, boasting an extensive line-up of incredible events including the famous Plant-Based Burger Battle, the bustling Festival Day, upscale celebrity chef dinners, workshops, wellness and more, all showcasing the best in sustainable, luxurious, plant-based living. Ranked 3rd in USA Today’s “Top 10 Best Wine Festivals,” SEED is the premiere plant-based food and wine festival in the U.S. since 2014. SEED is more than your average foodie event. SEED is a movement dedicated to conscious wellness, offering attendees an array of options in the lifestyle space that celebrates the growing plant-based community.

This November, the conscious culinary fête will welcome filmmaker John “Badass Vegan” Lewis, Joe “The Juicer” Cross best known for his film “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”, James Beard & NAACP Image Award-winning chef and author Bryant Terry, Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson of Red Rooster, Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn, former NBA star and Vegan Vine’s John Salley, and many other notable names to be announced soon.

The celeb-studded five-day festival will kick off on Wednesday, November 3 through Sunday, November 7, featuring celebrity chef dinners, wellness events, and their flagship SEED Festival Day on Saturday, November 6 which will take place outdoors for the first time at beautiful Regatta Park in Coconut Grove with unlimited pours and bites included in the admission price. This is the first year that the iconic signature event will take place at the picturesque, tree-lined, water-front park overlooking the Biscayne Bay.

The festival includes tastings from national and local restaurants, vegan wines, fresh juices, live music, organic body care, clothing, yoga, and everything that celebrates conscious plant-based living. SEED will gather some of the most talented speakers, chefs, celebrities, athletes and authors for a fun, educational, sexy, hip (and most of all, delicious!) week of food, cocktails, parties, and industry-led workshops. Baptist Health is presenting our Tasting Village Culinary Stage as well as our contributing sponsors Oatly, Frankly Vodka, Driscoll’s, Waterloo Sparkling Water, Coconut Grove BID and many others. Miami’s amazing local culinary scene will also be strongly represented.

All events are ADA compliant and we provide sign language interpreters at our Festival Day lecture and chef demo stages, as well as handicap accessible seating areas. “We’re beyond thrilled with the lineup that’s shaping up for 2021,” says Alison Burgos, co-founder of SEED Food & Wine Festival. “Some of the biggest names in the plant-based world will be joining us for what we are sure to be the best SEED Week 2021.” SEED is committed to being a leader in sustainability.

We are a Zero Carbon Footprint event and our charity partner is Debris Free Oceans. Debris Free Oceans is a Miami-based organization that inspires local communities to responsibly manage the lifecycle of plastics and waste as part of a global initiative to eradicate marine debris from our beaches, reefs, and oceans.
