Calling all foodies! Looking for a fun weekend getaway? Why not plan to head to Savannah, GA for this unique opportunity.

Tickets are now on sale for Heritage Fire, the first Savannah edition of America’s beloved, live-fire, open-air culinary experience.

Established in 2010 in Napa Valley, Heritage Fire is a live-fire culinary event that celebrates pasture diversity and local family farms. Touring fourteen cities across the United States, this one-of-a-kind outdoor bacchanal shines a gastronomic spotlight on the hard-working people who are raising heritage-breed animals and sustainable produce. The wood-fired feast will feature more than 30 prominent chefs, farmers, sommeliers, distillers, brewers and barkeeps all working in tandem for an unforgettable tasting experience. From locally-produced fruits and vegetables to heritage breed beef, pork, fish, and rabbit prepared by the top chefs in the country over open flames, there’s something for everyone at Heritage Fire. After indulging in each dish, attendees have the opportunity to vote for the ‘Best Bite of the Day’, resulting in one chef being crowned the Heritage Hero of their city. The all-inclusive tasting experience features a bevy of wines, craft cocktails, and beers. For more information on the Nation’s Hottest Competition, visit
