Vida / Celebrating Women is a boutique festival — the first of its kind — that will be held behind the Historic Train Depot at Maynards Market & Kitchen downtown from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 9.
The event will feature dishes created specifically for Vida by our region’s greatest female chefs, a tempting themed cocktail and mocktail by a local mixologist, vendors, music, and more.
Tickets are $25 per person, which includes food and drink tastings and access to local wares. Children 12 and under get in free.
All profits generated from ticket sales will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona for programs that train and support women in the culinary arts.
Donations will help the women create a sustainable living for themselves and their families through Caridad Community Kitchen and their Microloan Program. The women are dedicated and hardworking, looking to improve their skills and fill the many available positions in the community.
Microloan recipients, chef Cecilia Arosemena of Dish for Dosha and Dani Flower of Sunflower Superfoods will each have a table set up at Vida to showcase their products — you can meet them firsthand and find out about the positive impact this program has had on their careers.
The Vida tickets for 2019 are sold out — we’re so excited! For those of you unable to make it (or if you are coming but are feeling generous), please consider making a donation to The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
Thank you to Sarah Fox Hammelman of Sand-Reckoner for the wine donation — sip, sip, hooray!
A variety of curated collections — from clothing, jewelry, and home decor to craft supplies, art, and beauty products — will be on display and available for purchase.
Music will be provided by DJ “Mother Tierra” to set the mood for the afternoon.
In addition to the tastings, drinks, perusing local wares, and hanging out, there’ll be a photo booth (curated specifically for Vida by P.O.M. Events and Eastland Alley) and other photo opportunities to capture the celebration — don’t miss out!
It’s the first event collaboration with Tucson Foodie, Maynards Market & Kitchen, Yelp, and Brunch Babes in honor of International Women’s Day. Mariah Alysz of Rya Pie Pictures will be capturing the event through her lens.
Let’s celebrate women in the culinary arts by uplifting and supporting them. We’re all in this together.
