It’s a fundraiser for Fringe Arts. It will incorporate the Center’s theater, La Peg Restaurant, a bar and beer garden, and it will spill into Race Street. This year there will be food from 85 chefs, including La Peg Chef Peter Woolsey.

“We will be doing a foie gras mousse inside a profiterole with coco nibs and cherry reduction,” Woolsey explained.

Nick Stuccio is the president and producing director of Fringe Arts.

“Feastival does enable us to find new young talented artist to present here,” he said, “as well as to provide support for young artists that we know and love.”
