Over 40 local participating restaurants will offer free food and drink tastings to attendees, with live music, local vendors, a biergarten, a bark park for dogs, and more. The event will be emceed by radio hosts of Kool 105.5’s Mo & Sally from “The Mo & Sally Morning Show,” and judged by local radio personalities Virginia Sinicki of 97.9’s “The KVJ Show” and Mike McGann of Legends Radio 100.3, who will select the best food and beverage winners. Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice winners.
General admission tickets cost $65, while VIP tickets cost $115 and include exclusive access to “Seltzer Land,” an old fashioned beverage bar, an hourly food and wine pairing hosted by The Vine Post and The Cooper Craft Kitchen & Bar, with tastings from Little Moir’s Food Shack, tarot card readings from Psychic & Mystic Shop, and more.
