This weekend marks one of the top food events in the state of Alabama - The Break 'n Bread Food & Wine Festival, and I am super duper excited to go this year. The Birmingham Originals is an organization of our city's finest restaurants, and they are going big this year by hosting what promises to be the best BNB festival yet.
For those of you that live close to Birmingham, AL and are interested in attending, here are the details:
WHAT: Break 'n Bread Food & Wine Festival
WHEN: Sunday, October 14th
TIME: 1:00PM - 5:00PM
WHERE: Railroad Park
TICKETS: $35 for regular, $75 for VIP and children under 12 years old get in free
Break 'n Bread happens to be the signature experience for the Alabama Tourism Board's Year of Alabama Food campaign, and will feature an array of amazing food from nearly 40 Birmingham Originals restaurants. A sampling of the restaurants include:
Hot and Hot FishClub
A wide selection of wine and beer will also be available from Birmingham's own Good People Brewery, International Wines, Pinnacle Imports, Royal Cup and more.
Here's some additional information about the event, straight from the source:
Since 2003, the Birmingham Originals have organized this grand fundraising event to not only celebrate the South’s talented chefs and local farmers, but to give back to the community that has supported them over the years. In an effort to continue pushing the envelope and delighting the crowds, Break ’n Bread will once again play host to four multi-award-winning chefs from out of the state. Chef Adolfo Garcia of RioMar, La Boca and a Mano; Executive Chef Brian Landry of Borgne Restaurant; and Chefs Alison and Slade Rushing of MiLa will helm the VIP area, serving up Big Easy-inspired dishes with Big Easy attitude.
While food enthusiasts gather at the tasting tents, just a few steps away will be a dedicated children’s area featuring face painting with clowns from the Children’s Hospital of Alabama, petting corner and entertainment from the Birmingham Zoo, healthy kids cooking demonstrations, Desert Island Supply Company writing workshop and a pumpkin decorating station. Local farmer’s market vendors will also be stationed in and around the park, offering a variety of fresh produce and artisan products.
Tickets for Break ’n Bread and additional information are available at www.birminghamoriginals.org and on the Birmingham Originals Facebook page. Prices are $35 for regular, $75 for VIP and children under 12 years old get in free. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Make-a-Wish Foundation, Camp Smile-a-Mile and United Way’s Healthy Communities.
I hope to see you there!! :)
