Arguably one of Central Florida’s best culinary fundraisers, Cows ‘n Cabs returns to Winter Park for its 6th year on Saturday, October 22 from 7-10pm. A charity-based affair curated by ABC Fine Wine & Spirits’ David Larue and Chef John Rivers of 4 Rivers Smokehouse, the event is held under a gargantuan tent in Winter Park’s West Meadow at 150 North New York Avenue and invites attendees to don their best cowboy duds as they sip and sample fare from some of Orlando's best chefs and wine, beer and liquor vendors.

John Rivers is a co-curator of this event.
