Started as a wine promotion in select restaurants downtown, ArtsWave’s Toast to the Arts campaign has grown into a year-round, city-wide campaign by cocktail lounges, breweries and restaurants that invite guests to enjoy Greater Cincinnati’s finest libations while supporting the arts that make the region amazing.
Toast to the Arts has raised more than $35,000 since 2014. With each Toast to the Arts event or featured drink, partners also spread the word about ArtsWave's mission to create community through the arts.
In July, Taste of Belgium and Fifty West Brewery each will Toast to the Arts.
On July 14 at the Over-The-Rhine location, Taste of Belgium will kick off a six-month partnership with ArtsWave. The restaurant will donate proceeds from all bar sales from 3 to 8 p.m. that Thursday, and the Toast to the Arts Happy Hour series will continue on the third Thursday of every month through December. The Toast to the Arts Happy Hour will rotate through Taste of Belgium's four locations.
Mark your calendar now so you don't miss any chance to support the arts while enjoying hand-crafted cocktails, Belgian beer and mouth-watering waffles!
