The Music Showcase for 2015 promises to have a refreshing mix of upbeat local artists with the widely admired Zach Deputy, The Bright Light Social Hour and Beebs & Her Moneymakers in the spotlight.

The Culinary Pavilion has a delicious line-up of its own with live demonstrations and delectable fare put up by top chefs from successful restaurants and hotels around South Florida and includes Barefoot Bubbly 101, Super Foods for Super Families and a Student Chef Mystery Basket Competition.
