Event Style: Flights & Bites

This event will feature each Chef preparing 2-3 delicious bites for your enjoyment, as well as an array of beverage samples.

The past, present, and future of African-Americans in Asheville is a story of resilience. Join DeWayne Barton and Hood Huggers International for a Garden Gathering in the Peace Gardens & Market in West Asheville. Hood Huggers builds greater communication, connection and wealth in systematically marginalized neighborhoods in the Affrilachian region through the arts, environment, and social enterprise. The Peace Gardens & Market--a labor of love in the heart of the Burton Street Community--is a sanctuary for positive action, designed to create neighborhood food security, community cohesion, and a vibrant, sustainable local economy. The Gardens are also a vibrant sculpture park, featuring installations created by DeWayne Barton and other artists, telling a compelling story of social and environmental justice and black history. The Gardens will be activated with food, drink, art, music, poetry and performance. Dennis Malcolm Byron, AKA Ale Sharpton, world-renowned beer authority, award-winning journalist, blogger, photographer, event planner, host, speaker and beer judge will join this event to share his love of "the world's best beverage." Ale joins us as a guest of New Belgium Brewing, with whom he collaborated to recently launch his own beer called Piano Keys—a chocolate vanilla imperial stout—geared to support diversity and racial equality through various initiatives.
