The sixth edition of the North Coast Nosh sip and sample takes place Oct. 13 at the American Swedish Institute’s new Nelson Cultural Center. We can’t wait to welcome our guests and introduce them to our largest lineup of purveyors yet: more than 30 bakers, brewers, cheesemakers, and more from Minnesota and Wisconsin.
WHAT MAKES THE NORTH COAST NOSH DIFFERENT?
The secret behind the Nosh is simple: We fight to ensure that guests and purveyors have a great experience. That means we limit the number of tickets sold and we hand select the purveyors to feature the best of creative, local food. Guests can sample freely and comfortably, and purveyors can actually meet our guests and talk about their food and drink.
WHAT KIND OF FOOD AND DRINK WILL BE SAMPLED?
The exact mix always varies, but expect artisan cheese, craft beer, lovingly created baked goods and candies, fine charcuterie, and some creative and playful newcomers. A full list of participants will be listed on our site. By the time you’ve left the event, you will have enjoyed an edible snapshot of the best the Upper Midwest has to offer.
ARE THERE HIDDEN CHARGES FOR GUESTS OR PURVEYORS?
No. Your ticket allows you access to sample all of the food and drink on site, generally one bite-sized morsel at a time. Purveyors pay no fee to participate. Money raised from ticket sales supports our non-profit partner (in this case, the American Swedish Institute) and the Heavy Table’s mission of documenting food and drink in the Upper Midwest.
We’ll see you at the Nosh!
