Schoolyard Twilight Party

Celebrating a thriving local food economy

It’s been too long since we’ve celebrated with you. Hope you’re ready!

Small Bites + Raw Bar + Specialty Cocktails, Beer & Wine + Live, Local Music & Performers + Raffles & Games

“This event is a real inside taste of the local food experience.”

–Lisa Raiola, Founder & President of Hope & Main

This annual event showcases the incredible variety of products and businesses that we have the privilege of working with. Rhode Island’s food culture is revered by many, and we love that Hope & Main have an impact on one of the country’s most rivaled destinations for food.

When we were young, the schoolyard was a place we all went to let loose, have fun and be with friends. This party is set here to remind us that taking breaks from work and routine is good for all of us. Eat, drink and play with us, food friends! We are out here taking time to celebrate and indulge with all of the amazing people that make food their business. 

Come as you are, and come hungry! 

The ‘yard will be full of tented stations offering sweet and savory small bites – our members and graduates create a very special menu that features the latest and greatest of Hope & Main history! Take your time strolling around and tasting, talking and toasting…Your ticket is your access to all the good eats! (and feel free to wear your stretchy pants, there’s no formal dress code here)

Let’s toast!

Your support means a great deal. All tickets come with a complimentary drink as a gesture of our appreciation. When you’re ready for another drink you’ll find a cash bar stocked with local beer, wine and spirits as well as delicious non-alcoholic options.

THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE SHINDIG!

See you there?

Tickets are $45 for adults in advance, $10 for kids under 12. The day-of, adult tickets are $55.
