Eat Drink SLC Returns

Eat Drink SLC – one of Salt Lake City’s premier annual food and drink events – returns in person this year and it will be bigger and better than ever, with two back-to-back evenings: September 14th and September 15th at Tracy Aviary. Each event features a different selection of food and drink partners. And, each year a community organization benefits from the net proceeds of Eat Drink SLC. This year’s beneficiary is Women of the World. 

There are more than 20 food partners participating in Eat Drink SLC 2022, ranging from Oquirrh, Beehive Cheese Co. and Pretty Bird to Stanza, Nomad Eatery, and Cucina. And there’s an even larger selection of drink partners this year, from Utah purveyors like Waterpocket Distillery and Ogden’s Own, to Baobab Wines, Adelsheim Vineyard, Rutherford Wine Co., and dozens more. 

The cost per person for Eat Drink SLC (21 and over) is $100 and includes food, drink, and a complimentary signature event wine glass. For tickets, click here
