Coronavirus concerns have thrown cold water at one of the hottest one-off food events of the year. The Austin Food & Wine Alliance announced today that they will be postponing their annual Live Fire event at Camp Mabry, which was originally scheduled for April 2nd.
“Unfortunately, the global spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and the subsequent suspension of South by Southwest, has put a strain on the Austin culinary community, highlighting concerns about hosting major events. To consider attendees’ health and to increase the resources of chefs and vendors respect, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Live Fire, “the organization said in a statement sent via email.
The AFWA statement states that all tickets purchased will be refunded to the original card used to purchase tickets and that they will review their options and announce a new date for Live Fire as soon as possible. Potential participants can register for updates on the AFWA website.
