Join us for the 25th Anniversary of La Dolce Vita! What began as a small food and wine tasting on the grounds of Laguna Gloria has become one of Austin’s most anticipated fall events. La Dolce Vita showcases the culinary world of Central Texas, with all proceeds supporting The Contemporary Austin’s innovative education programs that serve thousands of children and adults each year.

Tickets to La Dolce Vita will include tastings from the most talked about chefs and restaurants in Central Texas, sips from both local and international wineries, and creations by acclaimed pastry chefs. On sale July 22.

Participating Restaurants

Tipsy Texan David Alan returns for a second year to curate La Dolce Vita’s Cocktail Lounge. This lounge features specialty cocktails by some of Austin’s most accomplished mixologists and offers an enticing resting spot between tastings.

Guests will enjoy live art demonstrations by Art School faculty members and fresh beats all night long courtesy of DJ Hear No Evil.

All proceeds benefit the education programs at The Contemporary Austin.
