This coming together of local establishments will give you an exclusive opportunity to try food prepared from the best chefs in town.

Part of SAVOR Blowing Rock, formerly known as the Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival, the restaurant showcase is your best bet for trying a little bit of everything. Local chefs will serve up small plated portions of their signature dishes, and you can be sure that there’s something there for everyone.

The restaurant showcase will take place under the Main Tent at SAVOR, which will be located at 1021 Main Street in downtown Blowing Rock.

Stick with your favorites or try something new — you can’t go wrong! While you enjoy dinner, tap into a variety of North Carolina produced beers, wines and other beverages.

Wine and dine with friends and neighbors as you sit back to enjoy live music at this can’t-miss Blowing Rock event.

Ugga Mugga Bakery’s Beth Zagst said she looks forward to collaborating with folks from other restaurants to offer this exciting event to festivalgoers.

“It is such a blast to network, visit and enjoy the company of other working professional chefs in the town. It’s a really great way to taste what everybody is doing, especially for me, because I can give referrals to my customers for restaurants in town,” said Zagst. “These people are my co-workers. A lot of the time we’re alone in our kitchens, so it’s great to get out and talk to each other. The wine festival is a huge event and it’s a most fantastic way for me to share my baking with people and let them know we’re open year-round.”

Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door. Call the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce at 828-295-7851 to get yours today!
