By Brooklyn Reader
Toast of Brooklyn and Amalgamated Bank are proud to present the 7th Annual Wine, Food & Arts Festival, taking place this Saturday, November 7, at Brooklyn’s newest venue, Brooklyn Industrial, located at 1260 Atlantic Avenue, between Bedford and Nostrand avenues.
This food, wine and spirits festival will run two sessions: from 12:30pm to 4:30pm; and from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
With over 85 major sponsors and participants, attendees will experience some of the finest tastings from a variety of spirit enthusiasts, premium wineries and food vendors. Tasting tables will be located throughout the venue with old and new brands, featuring an eclectic array of bold reds, dry, smooth and buttery whites.
Tickets are $50. Guests can indulge in hors d’oeurves, artisan samples, wine tastings, delicious chocolates and more; along with live music and beautiful art throughout the room.
“I am thrilled to share the Festival again this year with the community and Brooklyn’s many visitors,” said Edmon Brathwaite, the festival’s creator. Brathwaite last held the event in conjunction with community businesses and leaders at Restoration Plaza in Bedford-Stuyvesant. After amazing feedback and successful turnouts, he decided to make it even bigger this year at Brooklyn Industrial, just blocks away.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival will benefit The Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger and Breaking the Bonds (Jericho Road Inc.). Guests may purchase tickets and view the latest festival additions, schedules and more by visiting www.toastofbrooklyn.com. Tickets may also be purchased onsite at Amalgamated Bank located at 1212 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11216.
