**We've attended at least part of all the Eat Drink RI festivals so far, and count it as one of our favorite events of the year. The talks are entertaining and informative, the food is amazing, and it's a lot of fun. I think even Rhode Islanders who are familiar with the wide variety of local food growers, producers, chefs and distillers will find some surprises. It's all part of the fun.
