How it Began:
Ashely Ryals, Homegrown events owner of Crush Food and Wine Festival started Dine & Dash thirteen years ago. This tour started with five restaurants in one night! Ryals states, “Huntsville’s growth and thriving emerging restaurant scene has made this event the talk of the town. It is our mission to encourage and rally behind local establishments, nurturing the heartbeat of our community. Promoting and supporting small, local businesses lies at the very core of our purpose.”
Other Home Grown events include; Sip & Shop, Barks & Brews, Brewery Tour, and Crush Wine & Food Festival happening this year, September 23, 2023.
Bring small bills to tip trolley drivers and hosts. After the tour, walk downtown at Big Spring Park before you head home. Ask for a purple cup at a restaurant if you have not finished your drink. This is a free and legal way to drink on the trolley and/or on the streets in Huntsville. Relax and have a great time!
