The social event of the season hits the grounds of the Glenhyrst Art Gallery on Thursday, June 18, 2015. Just like many Brantford residents cite the opening of Dairee Delite as the signal to the start of spring, Taste of Glenhyrst could be the kick-off to summer. This major fundraising event features live music, great art, and unlimited samples from local restaurants, wineries and breweries.
This year’s theme is Casino Royale (think: fine food; smooth drinks; high rolling), so you may notice James Bond pop-ups throughout town to thank the many generous sponsors involved with this fundraiser. Each year, over 500 local patrons and businesses come out to nosh, network and support the arts in our community; all proceeds from this event go toward the Glenhyrst Art Gallery’s programming, including children’s classes and camps, exhibitions, special events and workshops for teens and adults.
Make sure to “dress to kill” for this year’s event to walk the red carpet, test your luck to win some amazing prizes, and come ready to enjoy the delicious offerings. Tickets for this event are $100, and include a $50 tax receipt. Your ticket is an “all access pass” to enjoy unlimited food and drink samples from a wide variety of local vendors. Everyone is welcome to attend, as long as you’re 19 or older.
Delicious fare will be offered from The Blue Dog, The Brantford Club, Burrito Brothers, ChefD TV, The Crepe House, De-Liz-cious Treats, Gran Sasso, Kirby’s (Best Western), On the Lam, Schofields Bistro, The Sherwood, Solely Cannoli, My Thai, Taal and Tipperary Bog/Petit Gourmet Food Co.
Libations will be offered from Bell City Brewery, Grand River Brewing Co., Steam Whistle Brewery and Wellington Brewery. Wineries that will be at Taste of Glenhyrst include: Burning Kiln Winery, Pelee Island Winery, Reif Estate Winery, Joseph’s Estate Wines, Strewn Winery, Sideroad Twenty Cellars and Silver Lake Premium Vodka.
