Thursday is the first day of the 2013 South Beach Wine & Food Festival. In our interactive timeline (below), we take a look back at the indulgent and now-famous South Beach Wine & Food Festival last year, in 2005 and back in 2001, when it was still known as the "Florida Extravaganza."
How have ticket prices, visiting chefs, food trends and popular events changed (or not changed) over the years?
Feel free to leave comments on this post or within the timeline about your own South Beach Wine & Food Festival memories and experiences. (See the full timeline on its own.)
