UPTOWN Art & Cuisine
It’s time to put UPTOWN on the map!
Join us in celebrating Pizza Gallery & Grill’s 30th Anniversary at the inaugural UPTOWN ART & CUISINE festival at The Avenue Viera. For this event, The Avenue’s Central Park area will be transformed into a ‘palatable’ experience celebrating great food, tasty craft brews, and signature wines and of course ART!
There will be multiple “areas” designated to either ART or CUISINE. Sample signature dishes from our various restaurant vendors, try the local craft brews made by participating breweries and distilleries and stroll through the varied art displays from some of the area’s best artists.
Featured Food Vendors:
Pizza Gallery and Grill, 28 North Gastropub, Poke Bao and More!!
Featured Fine Artists:
Jennifer Bonset, Kimber Grobman, Vashti Verschoor, Hassan Patterson, Jeff Glisson, Arianna Bergstrom, Heather Everett and More!!
Enjoy family-friendly activities starting at 5pm, including sidewalk chalk, a kid’s Pizza Creation Station where little ones can explore their creativity by crafting their own personal pizzas, and a pizza box decorating contest with a prize for the winner. The opening musical act, Absolute Blue, will be performing at 6pm, with the headlining act, Hot Pink! going on stage at 8pm.
There will also be two live demonstrations on the main stage: an art demonstration and a live cooking demo!
Our artists and chefs will all be competing for the coveted “Best in Show” award! The recipients of the Best in Show award will receive a $2000 cash prize. Your votes will help determine our winners, so bring your appetites and your discerning eye – and make sure to visit every booth or table before casting your votes!
We will also be collecting food donations and feature a special “Packing Station” led by the Children’s Hunger Project. Please bring your donations to the event. For a list of acceptable items, please visit Children’s Hunger Project for more info.
