Food & Ideas Festival 2019

Our inaugural Food & Ideas Festival took place on September 21, 2019 and by all accounts, was a huge success! We welcomed more than 300 people to our open warehouse space at 100 Washington Street for a day of panel discussions, art, tasty bites, crafted cocktails, cute merchandise, a live performance by Chinese rap sensation Bohan Phoenix and so much more!
