Last year I attended the Beer, Wine and Food Festival for the 1st time. It was a great event for a great cause, benefitting The Cure Starts Now Foundation that focuses on pediatric brain cancer.
The festival offers lots of options when it comes to beer, wine and food. My husband prefers beer and I prefer wine, which made this event a great date. We each got to sample and try the types of drinks we like, along with delicious food.
The Beer, Wine and Food Festival will return for its sixth year with a special “Chalk Street Art” .

The Beer Wine Food committee is excited to bring art to the festival this year. Building on the previous success of Clifton’s StreetScape for 10 years, Kip Eagan has eagerly jumped on board with Beer Wine Food to duplicate its success in Wyoming. Kip, an independent curator, is no stranger to multiple ArtWorks’ projects around the city focusing on making art more accessible. Groups of artists will recreate masterpieces on the festival’s streets while attendees can watch art in action. There will also be an opportunity for children to add their mark on a masterpiece. All participating children will receive a free chip wheelie from Graeter’s!
Charity founder Brooke Desserich says, “We really feel like this addition of street chalk art will not only help us to bring art into our neighborhoods, but also serves as a celebration of our roots when the community of Wyoming founded The Cure Starts Now through selling my daughter Elena’s artwork for donations to cancer research. I can’t think of a better location to kick off this new venture for our charity.”
Proceeds of the event benefit The Cure Starts Now Foundation, one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun cure” for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer.
