Red Bank Beer, Wine and Food Fest set for April 22


Red Bank will serve as the host when the seventh annual Beer, Wine and Food Fest is held on April 22.

The festival, which will be held in the White Street parking lot, will kick off at 12 p.m. and run until 7 p.m.


The event, which is sponsored by Heineken, will feature a worldwide selection of food, beverages and music.

“It’s the first big festival of the year. This is the perfect way to celebrate and welcome the spring season in Red Bank,” said James Scavone, executive director of the Red Bank RiverCenter.

The Red Bank RiverCenter is a non-profit organization that manages the Borough of Red Bank’s Special Improvement District. The district includes Red Bank’s downtown and shopping centers.

In conjunction with the New Jersey promotional company, Really Unbelievable Events (RUE), the Red Bank RiverCenter manages the event.

“The festival gives attendees the ability to sample and experience Red Bank’s eclectic business community all in one place. Families, residents and people new to the area can truly experience the best of what Red Bank has to offer – all for a good cause,” Scavone said.

More than a dozen Red Bank restaurants are expected to cater the annual event.

Along with the international selection of food and beverages on site, the festival also will feature 10 local and national bands, including American Rock band, The Nerds and Metalachi, a metal Mexican mariachi band.

Kiddie rides, games and a petting zoo also will be available to children in attendance on the day of the festival.

The entry fee is $5 per person, while children 10 and younger are admitted to the event for free.

All proceeds from the entrance fee will directly benefit The Cancer Center at Riverview Medical Center, Red Bank Regional High School’s parent support group, the ‘Buc Backers,’ as well as the Red Bank RiverCenter.

During the event, The Scooter Dudes will be providing $5 roundtrip rides to and from the festival.
