Ready those taste buds, because La Dolce Vita Food and Wine Festival has announced a delicious lineup for the 2015 soiree.

An astounding 50 establishments from Central Texas will be serving sips and bites during The Contemporary Austin's annual celebration at Laguna Gloria. Participants in the 2015 festival include the yet-to-open Wu Chow and hot new restaurants such as Juliet, Gardner, laV, VOX Table, and Counter 3.FIVE.VII. Regular faves like Olive & June, Eden East, Swift's Attic, and Ramen Tatsu-Ya will also make an appearance.

Seven vineyards will be on hand, including Duchman Family Winery, Becker Vineyards, and Pedernales Cellars. In addition, five mixologists will be crafting drinks in the La Dolce Vita VIP cocktail lounge. 

The annual food and wine event serves as a fundraiser for The Contemporary Austin's inventive programs that bring arts education to thousands of children and adults in the area. At La Dolce Vita, guests will be rewarded with art demonstrations from the very programs they are funding.

The event takes place Thursday, October 15. General admission tickets are $200, but a $250 upgrade includes access to the posh cocktail lounge. For a full lineup of participants, visit the La Dolce Vita website.
