The open-air, country-western themed event occurs every autumn in Winter Park’s West Meadow and also features live music, dancing and a silent auction.

Cows ‘n Cabs, one of our favorite food and philanthropy events of the year, returns to Winter Park’s West Meadow on Saturday, November 3, 2018 for its seventh year. Packed with gourmet food and fine wine pairings, Cows ‘n Cabs celebrates Central Florida’s thriving culinary scene by assembling the region’s most talented chefs in the name of charity and pairing their signature creations with expertly curated beverages.

Established in 2012 by John Rivers, Founder/CEO of 4R Restaurant Group, and Dave Larue, Vice President of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, this open-air, country-western themed event will highlight fare from 25-plus popular local restaurants as well as entertain guests with live music, dancing and a silent auction.

Since the inaugural event, Cows ‘n Cabs has raised more than $525,000 for the two charities. 100% of its proceeds benefit local charities – After School All Stars and Elevate Orlando.
