The most important fundraiser of the year for Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, ticket sales for CHEF FEST 2018 will open soon (with advance sales for members and past attendees) and this year promises still more opportunities to delight your tastebuds while supporting the arts.
New this year, we kick things off by raising a glass at the BLUE SPIRITS SNEAK PEEK. Learn to make bespoke cocktails and sneak a peek at Leavenworth’s newest distillery before it’s open to the public. Next it’s SUDS & SLIDERS NIGHT with Brewmaster Grant Stoebner at the Fresh Burger Cafe where we’ll enjoy artful pairings made with local beers and even a dessert slider course. Then it’s the celebrated return of THE HOT STOVE SOCIETY. Top chefs from Seattle’s Tom Douglas Restaurants group will guide us through cooking demos and delectable tastings in the beautiful setting of the Icicle Ridge Winery. Finally, it’s the MAIN EVENT at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts’ Snowy Owl Theater starring six chefs battling it out for your vote in the Chef Showcase, and our annual Appetite for the Arts Live Auction. Also new this year is the All-in Chef Fest Pass that provides you access to all four events (at a tidy savings). Come to one event, come to them all – your every sip, taste and sigh of satisfaction helps to ensure that the arts will continue to thrive in North Central Washington.
