A Message from American Lung Association of South Florida:

As the country’s leading champion of lung health, the American Lung Association puts the health and well-being of our nationwide community first and foremost. We have been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), state and local health departments and our medical experts throughout this emerging public health situation. For our area, this means that the hard decision has been made to postpone the 25th Anniversary of Las Olas Wine and Food Festival.

This decision does not come lightly.  The safety of our community, event ticket holders, sponsors, volunteers as well as beverage and restaurant partners are our top priority. The Las Olas Wine and Food Festival is the largest fundraising event for American LungAssociation of South Florida.  We look forward to rescheduling so we can bring our community together in support of the American Lung Association’s life-saving research, advocacy efforts and educational programs and join together to celebrate the incredible chefs and cuisine of the Greater Fort Lauderdale area as we do every year.

We have provided some additional information below:

1. Will Las Olas Wine and Food Festival be rescheduled?  We are working with the City of Fort Lauderdale and local officials to finalize the logistics involved in moving to this new date.

2. What will happen to my tickets?  All 2020 purchased ticket(s) will be transferred to the 2021 date.  We are working to finalize this new date and details now.

We understand and share your disappointment in the postponement of the Festival, however, we are working to minimize the risk to all, especially those with lung disease or a compromised immune system.

As this situation unfolds, we will continue to closely monitor CDC and WHO guidance. We urge all Americans, especially those at higher risk, to take all re asonable precautions to protect their health. We will continue to share important information on our website and through social channels. We also offer you the respiratory expertise available at no cost through the Lung HelpLine (1-800-586-4872).

We truly value your support of the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival.  For additional questions, please contact info@lasolaswff.com .

We will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible and look forward to celebrating the 25thAnniversary of the Festival!
