SHOP FARRAGUT and the Town of Farragut are getting ready for one of the most exciting evenings eagerly anticipated every year. The Farragut Food and Wine Festival has proved to have a regional draw of more than 1,000 food and fun lovers.
This event, now being produced for the 9th time is presented this year by Turkey Creek Medical Center. It will be held Friday, May 4th from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at 11240 Kingston Pike, (across from Farragut High School), with the help of a dozen area businesses including major sponsors, TDS, SouthEast Bank, Grayson BMW, Costco Wholesale and EXIT Realty.
The goal of the Festival is to showcase Farragut’s culinary arts. “The Festival was created in 2010 to draw attention to our local eateries. From hometown bakeries to 4 Star experiences, it is a showcase of ‘best bite’ samples from Farragut’s area restaurants and food providers. Patrons can pair those bites with wines, beers and ready-to-drink cocktails (ID required),” says Stephen Krempasky, Farragut Business Alliance’s Executive Director. “We know once attendees try these delicious samples, they will return – with friends – to visit these businesses in Farragut and enjoy more!” The popular beer lounge featuring beverages from The Casual Pint of Farragut and Mind Yer P’s and Q’s, plus the exclusive “VIB,” or “Very Important Bites,” tents are back this year. The V.I.B. experience gives VIP Patrons a sit-down 4 course plated offering from different Chefs! Each course is paired with a specific wine and explained by the experts while volunteers happily serve you!
An impressive line-up is committed to bringing the best to this annual event. The list includes; Restaurant Linderhof, The Cutting Edge Classroom, First Watch Café, Dickey’s Barbeque Pit, The Juice Bar, Costco, Seasons Café, Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, CItico of Wind River, Clean Eatz, Don Delphi’s Pancakes & Restaurant, Water Into Wine, Longhorn Steakhouse, Buddy’s BBQ, Tropical Smoothie Café, The Casual Pint, Mind Yer P’s & Q’s, The Blue Heron Restaurant, and Turkey Creek Medical Center/Morrison’s.
