Michael Symon, Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro, First Big Celebs Announced for Fab Food Show

Michael Symon once again will return to the Fabulous Food Show. He and Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro are the first two big-name stars confirmed by organizers to appear at this year’s big event. Now in its 10th year, the three-day attraction is one of the largest food shows of its kind in the nation. This year’s festivities will take place Friday through Sunday November 13-15, 2015 at the International Exposition Center in Cleveland.

Symon will be appearing all three days, according to Jeremy Levine, Vice President of Business Development for the I-X Center. Among his appearances, he will host another version of his popular “Block Party” on Saturday from 4:30-6:00 p.m. He’ll also host daily signings of his next cookbook, “5 in 5 for Every Season,” which will be released not long before the show.

“We’re also working with Michael on a Cleveland Browns themed tailgate event for Sunday November 15, connecting food and football, while the Browns take on rival Steelers in Pittsburgh,” adds Levine.

Valastro is scheduled to appear on both Friday, November 13th and Saturday, November 14th. This will be his first appearance at the big show. He will kick off with a new signature event at 1 p.m. on Friday with “Dessert First,” a cakes and cocktails event celebrating 10 great years.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, say organizers. Other stars will be announced as they become confirmed.

Tickets will go on sale to the public August 28th.
