Join us for our annual beer and oyster block party! New this year, Big Island Aquaculture will be here serving up grilled oysters along with all the shucked oysters you can eat, and Daniel Domingo Rodriguez of I Love Paella Valenciana will be cooking his famous paella streetside. Our friends from Blue Ridge Bucha will be slinging kombucha, and Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches will be here with all of your favorite treats!

We'll be offering our regular menu inside of course, along with beer-braised brats outside. And look for beer from Triple Crossing, Final Gravity, The Veil, The Answer, Trapezium, Center of the Universe, Maine Beer, Bell's and more! Boulevard Brewing will also be here with their mobile tasting room! Check out blvdroadtrip.com for details.

If you're looking for wine to pair with your oysters, Free Run Wine Merchants will be sampling a selection of hand-picked options for you to try before you buy.

Plus, we'll have local vendors to shop and live music kicking off at 3 p.m. on the patio with John Ellis Music, followed by fan favorites Andrew Alli and Josh Small at 5:30, and local musicians the Candy Spots at 8!

Chili Throwdown at Visual Arts Center

Art Junction Chili Throwdown in support of the Vis Arts Center!


The Art Junction Chili Throwdown has quickly become a not-to-
be-missed event. Restaurants make their best chili and VisArts

serves it up in ceramic bowls made in our clay studios. Guests
vote on their favorite chili, and at the end of the night, they take
their ceramic bowl home with them. Tickets are $20 for VisArts
members and $25 for the general public and include a drink ticket.
Last year, almost 600 people attended the event.
