Feasting on Asphalt

Hope you're hungry, downtown Phoenix. On Saturday, April 13, artists Clare Patey and Matthew Moore, with the help of ASU Art Museum and Roosevelt Row, will take over First Street between Moreland and Taylor streets to create a community celebration of locally grown, prepared, and sourced foods.

The celebration is inspired by Patey's annual event in London and discussions she and Moore had while creating an exhibition for ASU Art Museum. Patey and Moore say the event will include eats from local food trucks, tasting stations, and food demonstrations to the tune of live music and street performances.

A half-mile-long dining table will be set up for the main feast and filled with goods by more than 20 local chefs and culinary experts. Beer and wine will be up for grabs (for those 21 and older) between Moreland and Portland streets, and a community-wide mobile garden parade will kick off in the afternoon.

Sat., April 13, 2-9 p.m., 2013
