Guild Awards Gala
GREAT FOOD IS WORTH CELEBRATING.

The Spokane Culinary Arts Guild is hosting its second-annual awards gala on March 8, 2020 at the Davenport Hotel's Grand Pennington Ballroom to honor and celebrate excellence in the local hospitality industry. This event is designed to showcase the very best in our community and build industry connections that can enhance the quality of our regional ties through food. 

Come and celebrate with us and enjoy an evening of connection and conversation, lively entertainment, local purveyors, incredible food, and pros from around our region sharing their passion for elements of the food industry. This event will begin with a cocktail reception and light appetizers, followed by tray-passed small bites, and then culminates with the awards show!

The Historic Davenport Hotel will be hosting the event this year, and we cannot imagine a better backdrop. There will be small bites and cocktails available before the show, and dessert will be served during the awards ceremony.
