SAGINAW, Mich. (December 21, 2022) – Event officials are proud to announce the return of Eat Great Winter for 2023. Scheduled for February 19-21, 2023, attendees will have a chance to purchase a table of 8 at the unique food and beverage experience at the historic Temple Theatre in Saginaw. The event debuted in February 2020 to help continue the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational’s mission of building strategic partnerships through culinary programming and community engagement.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding into Saginaw County and partnering with The Temple Theatre to host what has become a premier winter dining experience in the Great Lakes Bay Region” said Eat Great Brand manager, Cameron Wing. “Saginaw and the Temple Theatre have such a rich history; we look forward to the opportunity to highlight the grandeur of the location.”
“We were delighted when we heard the Eat Great team was considering the Temple Theatre for their winter experience,” said Temple Theatre Executive Director, Michael Kolleth. “We’ve known of their unique culinary events from previous years and look forward to helping host one of our own in Saginaw.”
Taking a unique spin in the marketing of the event, the Eat Great team opted to withhold the location venue during the early phases of promotion.
“We thought it would be fun to highlight the beauty of our new venue through a series of clues distributed through our social platforms,” Wing said. “We’ve received tremendous support and engagement, while being able to showcase what’s been referred to as ‘the Gem of Downtown Saginaw’.”
While some aspects of the event will change, the level of service will not. Guests will be transported back to the opening of the Temple Theatre, kicking off the night with a walk down the red carpet. Eat Great Winter guests will then receive cocktails and Hors d ’Oeuvres prior to the main experience showcasing 8 courses paired with beer and wine from some of the top culinary destinations in the Great Lakes Bay Region. Each of the three evenings, guests can enjoy the two-hour experience while moving about the Temple Theatre with a surprise final course.
Tickets are being sold on a per-table basis for $600 (taxes and fees will apply). Reservations can be made at the available seating times of 5:30 pm, 6:00 pm, 6:30 pm, 7:00 pm or 7:30 pm.
