Eat, Drink and Be Rhody

Highlighting the variety of food artisans, the Eat Drink RI Festival is back


From April 28 to May 1, the Eat Drink RI Festival returns for its fifth year. The festival kicks off with Dinner by Dames on April 28, a dinner celebrating the talented women who are chefs and bartenders in Little Rhody. Then on Friday evening, indulge in creations from food trucks from all over the state – The Truck Stop benefits the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Saturday brings the Grand Tasting at the Convention Center, which centers around locally produced brews, spirits, wine and food. Finally (and sadly) on Sunday, the Grand Brunch closes out the festival by highlighting area chefs and pastry chefs, live music and special drinks.
