The culinary arts will make a splash at this year's Columbus Arts Festival with Savor the Arts with Dine Originals . This special area at the festival will feature some of Columbus' finest eating establishments from newer restaurants such as Barrio, offering South American and Spanish inspired street food, to Rigsby’s, an integral part of the Columbus community since 1986, serving a delicious lobster and corn chowder with chive oil.

Dine Originals Columbus is a community of independently owned and operated restaurants in Central Ohio. The mission of Dine Originals Columbus is to celebrate, support and promote locally owned and operated independent restaurants by providing unique dining experiences for its patrons and collaborative services and benefits for it members. The Columbus Arts Festival is excited to be teaming up with Dine Originals to promote the Columbus restaurant scene and the art of local cuisine.

The Savor the Arts tent will feature delectable menus developed by participating local restaurants that will redefine “something for every taste” including: Barcelona, Barrio, Black Creek Bistro, Deepwood, Due Amici, The Elevator, G. Michaels, Katalina's Corner Cafe, Mozarts, The Refectory, Rigsby's, Skillet, Tasi's and The Top.

It's just one more reason to get to the Columbus Arts Festival this weekend!
