Boston presents, ‘Let’s talk about food festival.’
In its first year, the festival attracted more than 30,000 enthusiastic eaters, generated over 5 million gross media impressions, sold out to more than 100 vendors and exhibitors and recruited over 200 volunteers who worked with SBN to leave behind a clean footprint. The festival received endorsement from city, state and local business supporters, including Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Massachusetts Department of Agriculture, Friends of Fort Point Channel, Boston Children’s Museum, Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, Seaport TMA, Boston Harbor Associates, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay, Chefs Collaborative, Slow Food Boston, and The Food Project.
Join us on Saturday, October 1, 2011 along the Boston Waterfront in Fort Point Channel for a free admission and zero waste festival where you will find farmers, fisherfolk, producers and chefs selling and showcasing local food. Spectators of all backgrounds learn about the benefits of sustainably produced food, purchase delicious local food for $5 per serving, participate in educational activities, engage with top local chefs, enjoy local music and art, and taste local craft beer andmead. Themed “Healthy Food for All,” the festival connects New England eaters with the abundance of fresh, nutritious local foods available in Massachusetts andstretching out into New England.
