MoonDance at Midnight Pass (Beaumont Center)
Now in its second year, Crave Lexington has quickly become central Kentucky’s signature outdoor “made from scratch” celebration, with a primary focus on local food and music. A production of Smiley Pete Publishing (this magazine’s parent company), this free, all-ages and family-friendly event follows a successful first year event that featured 30 local food vendors, 14 live music acts and about 10,000 visitors from all over the Bluegrass.
Once again, this year’s event will feature two days of programming geared toward kids and adults of all ages and levels of culinary interest. The festival will include live music from local and regional bands, culinary demonstrations, local beer and other libations, and dozens of food vendors that will offer a variety of delectable small-plate goodies at $1, $3 and $5 price points. The festival’s setup encourages diverse sampling, sharing and getting to know the region’s top producers and artisans in a setting that is both grand and intimate.
Crave will also host several pop-up events that will occur in the weeks and months leading up to the main event; visit www.cravelexington.com for more information and the full schedule of events, which will be released in the coming months.
