WUFT hosts several special events throughout the year–some fundraisers, others just a chance to give back to the community:
In addition to our regular programing, WUFT will occasionally host a public forum on the UF campus to discuss issues and topics that are affecting lives in North Central Florida. We archive some of these discussions including:
- A Conversation on Modern Day Slavery (Nov. 21, 2013)
Fanfares and Fireworks is the annual Independence Day celebration. Featuring local and regional bands, music, and the traditional fireworks display, the event draws thousands to the University of Florida bandshell.
A Celebration of Wine held in February, is our annual winetasting and auction fundraiser. Guests from across the Southeast travel to Gainesville to experience the international flavor of the tasting, which features more than 250 wines from vineyards around the world. The event showcases both a silent and live auction of special vintages and bottles, as well as wine related art. All proceeds benefit WUFT.
