The Festival is set to kick off Friday, October 19 with the Chicago Street Supper Club Farm-to-Table dinner hosted by Coast360. Guests will enjoy a family-style dinner comprised of 16 dishes created with Alabama-raised beef, fresh Gulf seafood and locally grown produce and prepared by the Gulf Coast Culinary Institute and other local chefs. Each course is also paired with the perfect wine to complement each dish.
