Why settle for a simple “taste” of Whitefish … when you can Feast to your heart (and stomach’s) content?
“Feast Whitefish” returns this May with a full week of amazing food & drink events, highlighting the very best that the Whitefish dining scene has to offer … and then some!
The Feast kicks-off on Friday, May 12 with the 2nd Annual Distiller’s Fest – an opening night cocktail party at Grouse Mountain Lodge featuring specialty cocktails (and spirits) from 10 different Montana micro-distilleries, including; Spotted Bear Spirits, Glacier Distilling Company, Whistling Andy’s and distilleries and a n all-star line-up of amazing appetizers from top Whitefish eateries.
May 15-19 it’s Restaurant Week at the Feast, a 5-day culinary affair where locally owned-and-operated restaurants offer incentives for patrons to revisit their favorite restaurants and experience new ones. Each night participating restaurants will offer a special, fixed-price Feast Week dinner menu that’ll knock your socks off!
Friday, May 19 the focus shifts from fine food to burgers and beer, as Bonsai Brewing Company hosts the first ever “Great Bonsai Burger Battle” in their outdoor beer garden on Wisconsin Avenue. Local restaurants and bars will try to “wow” the crowd – and the judges – with their take on the “ultimate” burger, and compete for the fame and fortune that come with being known as the undisputed Burger-Meister of Big Sky Country … all while sampling great Bonsai brews and enjoying great live music!
The festival concludes on Saturday, May 20 with the Feast Grand Gala at Cafe Kandahar and the Kandahar Lodge, a one-of- a-kind dining experience with five top local chefs – and a special guest chef from Washington State – collaborating to present a gourmet 6-course dinner, each course paired with award-winning wines from the West Coast and beyond!.
“We know that it’s physically impossible to savor all that the Whitefish culinary scene has to offer in just a few days time,” says Whitefish Chamber director Kevin Gartland, “but if you’re dying to try, Feast Whitefish is just the ticket!”
Feast Whitefish is presented by the Whitefish Chamber of Commerce, and supported by Kalispell Toyota, the Pine Lodge/Best Western Rocky Mountain Lodge, Whitefish Credit Union, the Flathead Beacon and dozens of fine local restaurants, catering companies, bars, breweries, micro-distilleries and distributors.
