From the Broad Appetit website (click to read all the info!):
The mission of Broad Appétit is to provide an affordable and enjoyable local food festival in that is locally driven and regionally appealing. Broad Appétit exists to promote the amazing food, art, and music that makes Richmond a great place to live and visit. Broad Appétit is hosted by Downtown Neighborhood Association and benefits FeedMore.
You've waited all year for the return of Broad Appétit and we are excited to once again feature the best local restaurants our fine city has to offer - and all at $3 a plate! Bring your appetite and cash and plan on grazing your way down Broad Street. There will be plenty of Virginia wines and beers to wash down the delicious offerings with, as well as great vendors to visit and music to please your ears. Remember your re-usable shopping bag and gather up your favorite in-season produce from local farmers and food providers. Check out the What's On the Menu link to see who's coming!
