Countdown to Wine & Dine for the Arts!

Thursday, January 9, 2014, By: kristen

We are one week away from the area’s premier culinary event, and the most important arts & culture fundraiser of the year- Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival: Wine & Dine for the Arts! Albany Barn is one of five lucky beneficiaries of the festival, and we could not be more grateful to the ACFWF Board of Directors, Chefs, sponsors, and participating restaurants and vendors for this honor!

We have welcomed our first twenty-two live/work tenants into The Barn and we are now preparing to open our 13,600 square foot creative arts incubator and community arts center. This is a major step forward in fully realizing Albany Barn’s mission of supporting artists, inspiring our community, and encouraging responsible reinvestment in the Arbor Hill Neighborhood. In addition to our many incredible project partners – The Albany Housing Authority, City of Albany, Norstar Development, Bishop Beaudry Construction, and Dave Sadowsky, Architect – we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the Albany Chef’s Food & Wine Festival: Wine & Dine for the Arts for selecting us as a beneficiary of this prestigious festival three years in a row and providing funds that have been so critical to our progress.

We are so excited to celebrate the start of this next phase for Albany Barn as the Festival marks its own milestone 5th anniversary!  Five years of dedication, hard work and artistry by the festival organizers, chefs, artisans, restaurants, distributors, sponsors and everyone who gives so selflessly to make the Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival ever more successful (and delectable)!

In a word or five: you MUST attend this Festival! Along with Albany Barn, proceeds benefit the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Albany Institute of History & Art, Capital Repertory Theatre, and Park Play House – all deserving organizations whose work has a tremendous impact on quality of life in the Capital Region.

Please visit the newly redesigned www.albanywinefest.com and purchase your tickets to any of the festival’s fabulous events today! Anyone who forwards their PayPal confirmation form to info@albanybarn.org will receive a free Albany Barn “Live.Work.Inspire.” button to sport during the festival!

As always, we hope you will spread the word, stay involved, and help us raise The Barn!
