Our mission

— Build recognition for Salt Lake’s status as a vibrant food and drink scene (locally) and destination (nationally)
— Foster appreciation of the synergy between food and drink
— Raise the visibility of local businesses in food and drink industry
— Donate proceeds to nonprofits that strengthen places, people, and art in our community

The need

Salt Lake is experiencing a new urbanism that supports a thriving and vibrant culinary community. As the valley changes, its tastes are changing with it. The growth of chef-driven and owned restaurants and rise of craft beverages, urban wineries and distilleries are elevating the city’s palate.

Not just a food festival that happens to feature a few wineries, not just a wine festival with some food to nibble on — Eat Drink SLC is a true communion between food and drink, pairing a diverse group of independently owned local restaurants with complementary wineries, distilleries and breweries. Eat Drink SLC’s format promotes the marriage of food and libations in a way unduplicated by other Utah events.

What they’re saying

“One of my fav foodie events last year! One of the few where the drinks are right up there with the food.” — Julie, EDSLC attendee

“It’s exciting to see Salt Lake’s burgeoning ‘foodie culture’ and all it brings to Salt Lake. We’re thrilled to be a part of Eat Drink SLC as it celebrates our community’s flourishing food and drink scene and the purveyors that are making it all possible.” — Scott Beck, President/CEO of Visit Salt Lake, one of the event’s sponsors

“I and most of the attendees I spoke to were very impressed—not just by the excellent food provided by an array of local restaurants, nor by the bevy of beverages, but by the organization and smooth flow of the entire event.” — Ted Scheffler, City Weekly

“Easily one of my favorite food focused events” — Stuart Melling, Gastronomic SLC

Details

Eat Drink SLC invites food and libations lovers aged 21 and over to nibble and nosh, sip and swirl the evening away while enjoying live music on the Aviary’s cool, green grounds. Festival-goers will sample seasonal fare from many of Salt Lake’s leading restaurants and purveyors; sip from a selection of 80 wines from an international assortment of family-owned wineries; taste craft cocktails from small-batch distilleries, including several which are locally owned & operated; and enjoy local beers from award-winning Utah craft brewers. With tickets priced at $90 (includes all food, drink, and a wine glass), this summer evening social is an approachable, affable and appetizing way to support three local nonprofits that enhance Salt Lake’s community.

Event leaders

Presenting drink curator Vine Lore Wine and Spirits is joined by an impressive list of award-winning Salt Lake City restaurants and mobile food businesses. Eat Drink SLC is hosted under a nonprofit partnership umbrella consisting of Tracy Aviary and SB Dance. These two organizations represent, respectively, a place and an arts-maker that contribute to the unique character of our community. A third nonprofit – Comunidades Unidas in 2015 and Race Swami in 2016 and 2017, and Neighborhood House in 2018 – represents an organization that especially empowers underserved youth from Salt Lake’s west side, many of whom are from families involved in the food and beverage industry. Eat Drink SLC’s mission is to honor the entire industry’s food chain including customers, business owners, managers, servers, culinary professionals, purveyors and agricultural workers.
