Waltham Food and Wine Festival to Be Held April 10, 2013

A food event is on its way to a western suburb of Boston this month, and it will also be focusing on the city's roots in the textile industry.

On Wednesday, April 10, the 21st annual Waltham Food & Wine Festival will take place at the Westin Hotel on 3rd Avenue, with the event going from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The festival will celebrate a couple of Waltham innovators from the textile industry--Francis Cabot Lowell and Sondra Celli--with exhibits being shown at the event. In addition to food and wine from various restaurants and wine distributors, the festival will also feature live music, a raffle, a silent auction, and more. (Some of the participants include The Chateau, The Elephant Walk, the Grille at Hobbs Brook, Horizon Wines and Spirits, Lizzy's Homemade Ice Cream, Ruby Wines, The Skellig, Solea, Tempo, and Watch City Brewery.)

Tickets to the Waltham Food & Wine Festival cost $45 in advance ($50 at the door), with the event being a fundraiser for the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation. For more information on the festival, please go to the link below:
