Take Another Bite: Tri-C’s Cleveland Eats Festival Returns for a Second Year
Downtown culinary event returns to Mall B on Sept. 15
Save your appetite for a second helping of Cleveland Eats, a culinary festival organized by the Hospitality Management Center of Excellence at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Cleveland Eats returns Sept. 15 to the Mall B outdoor event space above the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. The celebration turns Mall B into a downtown dining room with food and drink from the region’s top chefs, restaurants and breweries.
More than 8,000 attended the inaugural festival in 2017 to sample cuisine that has helped Cleveland earn a reputation as one of the nation’s best food cities.
“Last year gave people a taste of what all of the excitement is about,” said Michael Huff, the College’s dean of hospitality management. “We promise that there will be even more to savor in year two.”
Dozens of the city’s top chefs turn the festival site into their own personal kitchen, preparing mouthwatering specialties that will be available for purchase. Local breweries will be on hand with barley-and-hops creations to quench any thirst.
The family-friendly event also will feature cooking demonstrations; onstage musical performances; a culinary marketplace; children’s activities; and a fireworks display at the end of the night.
A cooperative of corporate and civic partners combine to stage Cleveland Eats, and a Culinary Council guiding the planning process represents a “who’s who” in the Northeast Ohio food scene.
Cleveland Eats serves to showcase the hospitality industry’s impact on the Northeast Ohio economy and Tri-C’s vital role in training the skilled workers needed to continue the region’s restaurant renaissance.
Admission will be $5, with children age 12 and under admitted free. Details on schedules and participating chefs and restaurants will be released closer to the event.
