3 reasons you should attend ASC’s Culture Feast

ASC’s Culture Feast! It might just be one of the most fun-filled dining experience you’ll ever have. Now in its second year, this Arts & Science Council event returns to uptown Charlotte on Friday, Sept. 9.

But Culture Feast is more than a dinning experience. It’s also a celebration of the region’s diverse arts and culture scene…punctuated with a great, outdoor meal.

Here are three reasons you should attend:

#1. Location, Location, Location

Let’s be honest; when else will you get to sit at a long, Southern-style dinner table in the middle of Tryon Street with a few hundred folks who also enjoy the arts and meeting new people? Bring a friend, but expect to mingle.

The menu: Mixed greens salad, basil-garlic grilled chicken breast, roasted fingerling potatoes, local bi-colored roasted corn salad and strawberry short cake trifle. Craft beer and wine are included in the ticket price. (Must be at least 21 to attend.) A vegetarian option also is available.

# 2. Oh, The Entertainment

All throughout your meal, you will enjoy – cultural experiences that “reflect the diversity of our community,” according to a well-placed source who refused to “spoil the surprise.” She did, however, promise a “mix of new and emerging cultural organizations.”

Last year’s entertainment included Opera Carolina, Inspire the Fire, Charlotte Symphony Quartet, Drums 4 Life, and Carolinas Latin Dance Company.

#3. Dancing In The Streets.

Dinner lasts from 7-9 p.m., but that’s not where it ends. Once dessert is eaten (Remember the strawberry short cake trifle?) a community street party will break out from 9-11 p.m., featuring Tyrone Jefferson and his band, A Sign of the Times.

Jefferson is former music director and trombone player for James Brown, aka, The Godfather of Soul. He also founded a Charlotte nonprofit, A Sign of the Times of the Carolinas, “dedicated to sharing the history of black folks” – efforts that earned him an ASC Honors award in 2016.

Tickets to Culture Feast are $30 per person. Call 704-372-1000 or go online at www.carolinatix.org/events/detail/culture-feast-1.
