Event postponed. New date TBD.
UNLVino, Las Vegas’ longest running fundraiser, is evolving! Now known as Evolution, the food & wine festival will feature engaging cooking demonstrations, tastes from local chefs and restaurants, immersive wine, beer & cocktail tastings, live music and more. The inaugural event will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at the Caesars Forum Convention Center.
As with UNLVino before it, Evolution will continue to serve as the year’s largest scholarship benefit for students of UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hospitality, one of the top hospitality management programs in the world. As part of the prestigious program, 40 students will help organize and produce the high-profile event through a fully-immersive, upper division course.
This year’s event will also honor legendary Chef Bobby Flay with the 2020 Dom Perignon Award of Excellence. Known for his unique and innovative style of cooking, the Iron Chef has received five Daytime Emmy Awards and was the first chef ever to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2015. With his Southwestern-style Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace and fast-casual concept, Bobby’s Burger Palace, Flay is no stranger to the Las Vegas culinary scene.
