Video about the 2014 Festival

Come and see what's happening in Saugatuck - it's a renaissance of food, drink and activity.

After highly successful events in 2011, 2012, 2014 & 2015 the Slice returns on Saturday September 10, 2015 from 2pm - 5pm with over three dozen of Saugatuck's finest restaurants, shops and galleries  opening their doors and inviting the community to come and sample their offerings. Walk the streets of Saugatuck Center and taste your way from restaurant to restaurant, to liquor store, to retail merchant and back.

Walk the Slice!!!

From Riverside Avenue to Railroad Place, to Charles Street, to Saugatuck Avenue each venue will have something special to offer. Try some brick oven pizza, a specialty soup or a dish from Mario Batali. Try something at Bridge Square's eateries. Watch a Black Belt Tae Kwon Do demonstration by Westport's award winning martial artists or check out the auction house items. Listen to over 8 bands and stroll along the boardwalk at the plaza overlooking the river. Maybe even take a paddle on a SUP or kayak. There is so much to do for the whole family. Bring the kids and check out the Fire Department's antique fire engine, the fire safety trailer and tour the historic Fire House which will be open to the public. Climb a rock wall, jump in a super bouncy house and learn about Maker Space and 3D printing and watch drone fly over Luciano park.

Grab a map and see if you can taste everything being offered. Your stomach will be full before you get to the end.  Get you passport stamped and enter in the lottery for gift certificates to many of these fine venues.

Activities:

Restaurants / Caterers, 24 of them, will offer free tastings of their signature dishes right in front of their locations.

Beer Gardens @ Bridge Sq and RR Place.

Retailers will offer kayak rides, auctions and auction tips,  Environmental info, boating information, discount coupons and martial arts and dance demonstrations.

At least 8 bands playing at 6 different venues throughout The Slice.

All this for an all inclusive $10 participation fee for adults and $5 for children 5-12. Proceeds will be donated to Homes for Hope, Gillespie Center Food Pantry.

Parking is on Riverside Avenue under 95 in the RR lot #5, right next to the new plaza.

The goal is to have you see Saugatuck for what it is, where it is. Come and Walk the Slice!

Note: Railroad Place will be closed to be a block party. Access to the train will still be available.
