Announcing Eat Drink SLC – A New Food & Libations Festival Takes Flight at Tracy Aviary
On July 9th, Tracy Aviary will be the lush, verdant setting for Eat Drink SLC, a new food & libations event that celebrates Salt Lake City’s coming of age as a culinary hotspot. Not just a food festival that happens to feature a few wineries, not just a wine festival with some food to nibble on — Eat Drink SLC is a true communion between food and drink, pairing a diverse group of independently owned local restaurants with complementary wineries, distilleries and breweries.
Eat Drink SLC invites food and libations lovers aged 21 and over to nibble and nosh, sip and swirl the evening away (from 6-9pm) while enjoying live music on the Aviary’s cool, green grounds. Festival goers will sample seasonal fare from many of our leading restaurants and purveyors; sip from a selection of 80 wines from an international assortment of family-owned wineries; taste craft cocktails from small batch distilleries, including several which are locally owned & operated; and enjoy local beers from award-winning Utah craft brewers. With tickets priced at $75 (all-inclusive), this summer evening social is an approachable, affable and appetizing way to support three local nonprofits that enhance our community and our lives: Tracy Aviary, Comunidades Unidas and SB Dance.
Eat Drink SLC was born from the desire to build recognition of Salt Lake’s status as a vibrant food and drink scene; foster appreciation of the unique union between food, wine, beer and spirits; and raise the visibility of local businesses in Utah’s food and drink industry. Eat Drink SLC’s format promotes the marriage of food and libations in a way unduplicated by other Utah events, giving equal weight to food and drink by thoughtfully pairing restaurants with complementary wineries, distilleries and breweries.
“Salt Lake is culturally thriving like never before, and we’re thrilled to host Eat Drink SLC,” states Tracy Aviary Executive Director Tim Brown. “There is an increasing number of community-minded people who are interested in culinary experiences and are eager to explore new locally crafted products, including beer, wine and spirits, all in the name of a good cause – or in this case, three good causes. Eat Drink SLC provides all of these experiences in a beautiful setting, with our blooming flowers and our birds showing their most colorful plumage.
