Piedmont Food Fest adds Hiiiwav Showcase to lineup

Piedmont Food Fest 2 is coming to town April 23 and the experience continues to grow. Volunteer slots for the day are now available for signup via the website.

Attendees will want to score prime seating to enjoy this year’s lineup of performers. In the spirit of celebrating the diversity of the Bay Area, groups taking center stage will include:

  • Hiiiwav Showcase, featuring Meaghan Maples and Tyler Reese. Hiiiwav helps Black musician-entrepreneurs build lasting businesses and uplift their communities.
  • Emeryville Taiko has entertained audiences throughout the Bay Area for over 25 years with its modern, electrifying “kumi-daiko” style art form, which has its roots in religious and folk festivals of Japan
  • Renegade Opera’s Jewelz Moya has brought her operatic arias as a lyric soprano to high profile events such as the Edwardian Ball SF and the Lightning in a Bottle festival
  • LIKHA Pilipino Folk Ensemble helps preserve indigenous Philippine art forms as expressed in music, literature, dance, arts, crafts, and attire through performance, community outreach, and youth development
  • Oakland Samba Revue returns to the Food Fest stage, bringing its unique blend of “little big band” sounds of Brazilian samba de gafieira, which blends together acoustic samba, jazz, and funk

Piedmont Food Fest will now feature 30 food vendors, breweries, and wineries coming in from all around the Bay and includes Oakland United Beerworks, Buck Wild Brewing, Federation Brewing, Wondrous Brewing Company, Dokkabier, Deer Hill Vineyards, Maker Wines, and Two Broads Ciderworks.

Early Bird deals are available at www.piedmontfoodfest.org and include drink packages, KidZone carnival bracelets, collectible water bottles, and a gourmet boba and mochi snackbox from Bakesum and Tea on Piedmont. Special pricing runs through March 31.
