Food And Beverage
Artscape’s 2016 food & beverage program shined a spotlight on local food and sustainability with 100% of this year’s food vendors hailing from Maryland and for the first time, a ban on all Styrofoam materials. Again for 2016, all proceeds from the festival’s beer and wine stands directly benefit the festival, helping to ensure that Artscape stays 100% free and open to the public.
Innovative and creative fare can be found from any of the 30 food vendors such as Dooby’s Korean BBQ chicken, Ekiben Asian-fusion crab buns, and Rouge Fine Catering’s assortment of world-flavor-inspired tacos. Local gems like Ryleigh’s Oyster, Miss Charlotte’s CrabCakes, Otterbein Cookies and Zeke’s Coffee offer their Baltimore crowd-pleasers, while classic festival fare is available from Smokin Joe’s BBQ, Funtastic Foods with their hand dipped corn dogs and funnel cakes and ThaiThai’s pad thai. Maryland farms are also getting in on the action. Prigel’s Family Creamery serves ice cream fresh from their farm in Glen Arm, while the Eastern Shore’s Black Dirt Farm serves food from the farm to the stars and back, including Sun-Sizzling Sweets (fruits), Liquid Cosmos (juices and liquid refreshments), chips and salsas and pickled vegetables.
