Here’s a chance to try a little bit of the best food in Alabama, all in one place. The 10th annual Breakin‘ Bread 2013 will be Sunday from 1-5 p.m. at Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham.
This annual festival drew a crowd of more than 2,000 attendees hungry for food and community in 2012. The event features samples of signature dishes from nearly 40 Birmingham restaurants and guest chefs from all around the state. This year’s VIP chefs include James Boyce from Huntsville, Wes True from Montgomery, Rob McDaniel from Alexander City and Josh Quick from Florence.
There are also beer and wine tastings, live music from the Alabama School of Fine Arts orchestra, a remote-controlled boat exhibition and a kids area with face painting, pumpkin decorating, a writing workshop and food by Chef Chris Vizzina and Amanda Storey.
Tickets are $50 and include food and beverage tastings, activities and live entertainment. Tickets for ages 12-18 are $20 and children under 12 are free.
