Ramp Fest – Saturday, May 4th!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Greetings, Noshers!  Man, I feel like a broken record, but this is one more week that just seems non-stop!  I attended some really fun events this and last week (French cooking class, anyone? How about pasta making class or a prosciutto party?)  and just need to find the time to write the posts to tell you all about them!   But today, I’d like to share with you an event that I will be attending this weekend, that I am SUPER excited about!

Yes – a festival all about the beloved and much-touted ramp!  On Saturday, May 4th, the city of Hudson, New York, will host the third annual Ramp Fest, a celebration of the arrival of spring’s first forageable delicacy!  For the uninitiated, the ramp is a member of the onion family – to me, I imagine it to be the delectable love-child of a spring onion and garlic. Yum!  Ramp Fest will feature delicious food, drinks, and live music.  Fun!!

And just to really make your mouths water, I’ve been given a little preview of some of the restaurants, chefs and delectable dishes that will be served at Ramp Fest – here are some of my faves!

Ramp Fest will be held at the Basilica Hudson, a 19th century industrial factory transformed into an event and festival space.  Super importantly for city-dwellers like myself, it is located directly across from the Hudson Amtrak Station, just 2 hours direct from New York City! I’m definitely going to make a day trip out of it!

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.  I hope to see you there!!! 🙂

Have you had ramps before? Are you a ramp fan?
