Eat, Drink and Be Rhody

The Eat Drink RI Festival, back for 2017, brings the state's best food to delicious events all over Providence


The Eat Drink RI Festival is back again for a sixth year, but don’t call it a comeback: the festival is bigger than it’s ever been, and is spreading out all over Providence because of it. From April 26-29, sample some of the state’s best food and get to know the farmers, makers and chefs who produce it. Among the events: Dinner by Dames, a multi-course culinary event featuring food and cocktails all made by RI’s star lady gourmands; the Truck Stop, the food truck benefit for the RI Food Bank; and the main event, Saturday’s Grand Tasting, that fills the Convention Center with hundreds of Rhody-made treats.
