Over 50 local establishments have registered to participate in the 3rd Annual Reno Food & Drink Week taking place June 1-8, 2022 and 20 have registered to participate in the inaugural Sparks Food & Drink Week taking place June 8-15, 2022. Participating food and drink establishments will be offering special, off-menu bites and drinks to locals and visitors throughout the week.
“Food & Drink Week is a great celebration of the delicious and unique things that our community makes,” said Will Truce, Black Rabbit Mead Company. “We are proud to be a part of it.”
“This is such a fun event for the community,” said Cyndi Wallis, Great Full Gardens. “And it allows our teams to get their creative juices flowing to create an exciting new special!”
Reno Food & Drink Week and Sparks Food & Drink Week have been created to support and celebrate the local food and drink community, to encourage locals and visitors to try new places, delicious dishes and tasty beverages during this week and, hopefully after having an excellent experience, revisit throughout the year.
“I’m so excited for another chance to celebrate the wonderfully eclectic culinary experiences Reno has to offer and even more excited to expand the experience to include a week celebrating the diverse culinary experiences Sparks has to offer,” said Cheree Boteler, Founder of Hungry in Reno and Hungry in Sparks. “It is my greatest pleasure to have the opportunity to work with owners, chefs and managers to promote their establishments before, during and after this tasty week.”
