Those who drop by this year’s nine-day Light City festival will have a wide range of local fare from which to choose.
Today, the organizers of the second annual light art, music and innovation festival unveiled the food and beverage lineup. It’s chock-full of Baltimore favorites, from traditional sausage and local seafood staples to ramen and creative takes on French fries.
The eight planned food stations (three more than last year) will be spread across the BGE Light Art Walk in the Inner Harbor. Vendors will include: BrickNFire Pizza Co., Sherwood Amusements, Farm to Face, Slate Farm Brewery, Zeke’s Coffee , Berries by Quicha, Whimsy Cakes, Deddles, El Tenedor de Nacho, Dooby’s, Ekiben, The Local Fry, Pinch Dumplings, Ejji Ramen, Faidley’s, El Taco Loco and Smokin’ Joe’s BBQ.
For beer, Heavy Seas, Union Craft, and The Brewer’s Art will all be on tap at each food station.
Light City will also have its dedicated cocktail available at each of the eight food stalls. “The Golden Hour,” designed by B&O American Brasserie’s Eric Fooy, comprises 1.5 oz. Sagamore Spirit Rye, .5 oz. maraschino liquor, 2 oz. orange juice and .5 oz. lemon juice, with a dash of bitters and a cherry garnish on top. The signature cocktail and wine will also be available at each food station.
Those who want to enjoy local eats and drinks and learn about the broader concept of food can pay for a seat at the food lab in the festival’s conferences portion. The lab will take place at the Columbus Center at 701 E. Pratt Street and will feature talks from culinary innovators such as Baltimore James Beard Award-winning chef Spike Gjerde, and Urban Pastoral co-founder JJ Reidy. That event runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. At the end, guests can attend a Made in Baltimore-themed “Food Innovators Happy Hour” with more than 20 local food and beverage vendors.
