What To Expect At #BITENWA - A Fabulous Foodie Event in Northwest Arkansas
(This post was done in collaboration with #BiteNWA but all words and opinions are my own. )
When there's a foodie event in Northwest Arkansas which is soooo close to us here in Oklahoma, it would be stupid not to pop along to check out what all the fuss is about. Am I right fellow foodies?! This will be by second year to attend Bite NWA and I am just over the moon over it. Over the course of three evenings you will experience the best food, beverages, restaurants, chefs, ingredients and brands Northwest Arkansas has to offer.
Pretty much the ultimate foodie dream if you ask me! My stomach is already rumbling!
I shared the ten most unforgettable moments from #BITENWA from last year’s event and I am almost positive there is going to be like 20 unforgettable moments from this one!
Three Nights. Three Unique Experiences..I mean BRING IT ON!
So here is the lowdown on this year’s event!
Wednesday, June 26 BITE | SPARK
6:00 – 9:00 pm
Kick off BITE NW Arkansas by igniting your palate with influences from across the world right here in our own backyard. At BITE NW Arkansas’ newest night, we’re challenging you to SPARK a new love for different cuisines and flavors inspired by Walmart’s own international reach. Embrace the unique flavors that define cultures by taking a bite beyond our region.
Thursday, June 27 BITE | DISCOVER
6:00 – 9:00 pm
Explore the innovative personalities and cutting edge culinary culture of the region at BITE / DISCOVER. Reserve a seat at the chef’s table or savor top restaurants and brands at this world-class celebration of the creativity found right here in Northwest Arkansas. At BITE’s signature event, we invite you to DISCOVER the unexpected with us.
Friday, June 28 BITE | CRAFT
6:00 – 9:00 pm
BITE culminates by saluting the artisans and spirit that make up the landscape of the Northwest Arkansas culinary scene. Revel in the local, playful side of the region while enjoying what’s hot right here at home—from comfort foods to expertly made libations and everything in between. CRAFT comes in many forms, and we believe it should all be appreciated.
Start building up that appetite, because BITE NWA is going to be a very good time. This is the best place to mingle with other food lovers, eat and drink delicious food and beverages, or just explore the event grounds which will be 8th Street Market again! Encompassing approximately 10 acres along 8th Street in the Bentonville Market District near the Bentonville Square, 8th Street Market is a community focused food hub where the anchor tenants and merchants serve each other as well as the larger community. The space will ultimately showcase culinary education, music and the arts, new restaurant and hospitality venues, and other specialized food and drink concepts. 8th Street Market is home to Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food, a program of Northwest Arkansas Community College. Brightwater represents one of the most comprehensive culinary arts and hospitality programs of its kind in the central United States. Spring classes are now underway at Brightwater’s campus within 8th Street Market. How cool is that?!
And because the foodie event does not start until the later evening, you still have the day time to explore other areas of Bentonville!
Now let’s eat, drink, & repeat!!!!
