A few years ago, Bellaire would have been hard-pressed to have any kind of local food festival, but with a robust selection of eateries, the first Bellaire Foodie Fest will launch Saturday (Oct. 19) at the new Civic Center, complete with live music and samples from breweries, wineries, tea and coffee purveyors to wash everything down.
The event, with tickets priced at $50 each, will run from 5-8 p.m. at 7008 S. Rice Ave. The Bellaire Business Association has organized the evening.
Among the food establishments represented are The ‘401 Table & Tap, Saltillo Steakhouse, Lemongrass Cafe, Cafe Piquet Cuban cuisine, Jax Grill, McHugh Tea, Dandelion Cafe, The Sugar Shop Bakery & Gifts, Nékter Juice Bar and Union Kitchen, along with H-E-B.
Beverage suppliers include St. Arnold and Karbach local breweries, Winesellers, Ltd., Michelob Ultra and more, with Stella Artois providing commemorative glasses for each ticket holder.
The New Ezra Charles Band will perform live.
Tickets are available online at BellaireFoodieFest.com or at the door.
