Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit returns to the Las Vegas Strip for its 12th time on May 10-13 with chefs and beverage pros from Caesars Palace, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Cromwell, MGM Resorts, the Venetian and the Palazzo Las Vegas taking part in the massive food festival.

This year, chefs such as Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Gordon Ramsay, Guy Savoy, Lorena Garcia, Masaharu Morimoto, Michael Mina, and Nobu Matsuhisa join the lineup, with tickets already on sale.

The festival includes dinners with chefs, cocktail-focused events, interactive experiences, and returning events such as the Grand Tasting at Caesars Palace and Picnic at The Park. Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, which just opened at Caesars Palace, hosts its first Vegas Uncork’d event, while the Cosmopolitan throws a clambake, The Mob Museum in Downtown Las Vegas brings in guests for an event at its new speakeasy, Lorena Garcia of Chica hosts a Mother’s Day brunch, Cake Boss Buddy Valastro holds a demo, and Wolfgang Puck serves a steak and eggs breakfast.
