Hey Columbus, are you ready for the best local food party of the year?!

Presented by Huntington, the North Market Apron Gala is happening this Saturday May 19 from 7 – 11 p.m. at the North Market (59 Spruce Street Columbus)!

The North Market Apron Gala features music, drinks and a fun three-course dining experience while strolling through the city’s historic market. This year is the 22nd annual Apron Gala benefiting the non-profit North Market Development Authority.

General Admission tickets are $100 and can be purchased online at http://www.northmarket.com/portfolio-item/apron-gala/.

This event will be hosted by special guest emcee Nina West! Exclusive dishes will be prepared by the market’s best-in-class merchants. Enjoy fine wine and beer. Entertainment includes dancing to the music of Ohio’s only “yacht rock” band, Yachtly Crue. Check out the live auction featuring unique local and culinary experiences, featuring many North Market merchant packages!

Aprons are encouraged at this fun, casual event, but comfortable shoes are a must. Dress to have a great time! You might even win the Aprons on Parade contest!
