Festival Feast

Venue: Union Station

Duration: 7:00pm – 11:00pm


Join us as we kick-off the 46th season with a cultural and culinary synthesis unlike any before. We will follow the story of Omar and the culinary traditions originating in Senegal and other West and Central African countries throughout centuries of progress to what we now know as modern lowcountry, Gullah-Geechee culinary traditions. This journey will be curated by Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College Chef Instructor Kevin Mitchell and James Beard Award-Winning Chef Rodney Scott and will feature modern interpretations of traditional dishes from Senegal, Nat Fuller’s Feast, and barbecue while highlighting the rich, local ingredients of South Carolina. The evening will also feature Demetrius Doctor Trio & The Wives with special appearance by Quentin Baxter.
