Friedberg says this years 6th annual event takes place September 17th:
“This year, we have gotten so lucky , the city has been amazing by letting us close off Race Street from 2nd to Columbus. So we have that entire street, plus our corner and it’s going to be filled with over 80 restaurants, great performances.”
She explained how the event melds the culinary arts with the performing arts and this year, there are both old favorites and new surprises.
“We’ll have ‘Strange Fruit’ from Australia with us again, they are the phenomenal acrobats that sway in the air with these crazy costumes on. We’re gonna have ‘Red Forty And The Last Groovement’, that’s a Fringe Arts resident band and they are so funky and cool! A lot of hand pick contemporary dancers in full body paint; very sexy and some other performances!”
