Jupiter, Fla. (PRWEB) October 17, 2012

On Oct. 18, 2012, the celebratory Latin American Food & Wine Festival will take over Mainstreet at Midtown, a beautiful outdoor shopping plaza filled with unique restaurants, art galleries and condos for sale in Palm Beach Gardens.

The organization behind the much-anticipated event is the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County, which promises to transform Mainstreet at Midtown into a local version of the famed “Calle Mayor.” Chamber staff members and employees have been working for months on the event and have lined up an exciting itinerary for the evening.

Live music is one of the festival’s signature offerings. Guests will groove to ranchera, mariachi, Latin pop, salsa, merengue and cumbia songs and instrumentals, and the five bands on the bill will have everyone dancing in the street. Who knows? The county’s largest conga line might form!

More entertainment will be offered by performers from the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, an award-winning regional venue set amid the beachfront condos in Jupiter.

The food factor is a major draw for visitors, as two dozen of the region’s hottest restaurants are lined up to sell their savory samplings. One of the restaurants, Coolinary Café, is renowned for its “cool” food combinations. It’s in Donald Ross Villages near Evergrene. Also, national and international winemakers will suggest vintage pairings from the illustrious regions of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Spain.

Some of the world’s top cigar-makers will be plying their age-old trade, hand-rolling their finest tobacco.

In a timely twist, the Palm Beach County Commission has selected the Latin American Food & Wine Festival as part of the lead-up to the final presidential debate Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton. Media representatives from all over the world will be in South Florida to cover the debate, and many are expected to attend the festival.

The festival will run from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and will conclude with the Silver Platter and People’s Choice Award competitions, in which a panel of celebrity judges allocate points for hospitality, presentation, taste and display.

“We particularly enjoy the street-party atmosphere and entertainment organized by the Hispanic Chamber,” said Belle Forino, marketing coordinator for Mainstreet at Midtown. “We are thrilled to once again play host to an event celebrating Latin-American culture.”

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities Realtors tout the festival – now in its third year – as a fun and inexpensive “must-do” for homeowners in northern Palm Beach County.
