We hope you will consider adding a donation to MANNA's Packs for Kids program.

Experience the legacy of Appalachian ingenuity and delight in the senses in the pop-up food hall, which takes over the event space and scenic rooftop bar of Highland Brewing Company—Asheville’s original brewery that tapped into the city’s thirst for craft beer when it rolled out its first kegs in 1994. Spend a memorable evening mingling with movers and shakers of the culinary scene—from brewers and distillers to James Beard-nominated chefs and food artisans—as you taste local specialties, enjoy live music, and view the work of celebrated artists.
