A Culinary Circus of Desserts, Wine, Beer, Spirits, Music, & Fun in Asheville

 

SWEET: August 21 2015                        

 

 

This year’s SWEET will prove to be a decadent evening of desserts, sparkling wines, wine, and spirits to name a few of our favorite things. Chocolates, cakes, tarts, pastries and more—it doesn’t get any sweeter than this.

 

SWEET is the place-to-be event on Friday evening from 8 to 10 pm, before the GRAND TASTING on Saturday. Evening attire or jeans, enjoy dinner at one of the many excellent Asheville Independent Restaurants, but save room for an evening of toothsome confections and sips at the historic Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. Local bakers, chocolatiers, pâtissiers, wine vendors, brewers and distillers will line the corridors of this architectural wonder. The shops of the Grove Arcade will stay open late, giving you the opportunity to shop for handmade crafts, jewelry, furnishings, and more while you indulge. 

 

Enjoy the music, the food, and the atmosphere that takes you back to a fun time in our city.  Create a new vibrant tone as you explore all that is delectable and delightful at the 2015 SWEET event, held on the second evening of the Asheville Wine & Food Festival.
