Flathead locals and visitors are cordially invited to enjoy an annual Whitefish tradition: Project Whitefish Wine and Food Fest. For the last 30 years, Whitefish has hosted the annual wine tasting, food festival and auction. This year’s event, themed the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous May Day Celebration, will be held at Grouse Mountain Lodge on Wednesday, May 1st from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. The annual event raises much-needed funds to support kids in our community through sports and the performing arts. All proceeds from this benefit go to Project Whitefish Kids, the organization that maintains the Smith Fields Sports Complex for several sports teams, and the Whitefish Theatre Company.
Tickets cover all food and drinks. Food and Drink Businesses present: Indah Sushi, The Grill at Grouse, Cypress Garden & Cartwright Catering, Loula’s At Night, Last Chair Kitchen & Bar, Fleur Bake Shop, Whitefish Lake Restaurant, Fun Beverage, Montana Coffee Traders, and Great Northern Brewing Co.
A silent and live auction highlights the evening with lots of exciting items available this year. Auction items include original art, custom-made gourmet dinners, weekend getaways, sporting equipment, wine, restaurant gift certificates, cooking classes, health and pampering specials, Griz and Bobcat football tickets, theatre tickets, outdoor adventure events and much, much more. Local businesses and individuals have donated all of these items.
As a special treat, John Dunnigan and David Walburn will be playing music during the evening and acting as the event’s emcees and auctioneers.
