Great flavors coming to Berkeley

September 1, 2012 by  

The 17th Annual Crush Festival ‘Que Syrah Syrah’, a regional gourmet food and wine bonanza, has been scheduled in Berkeley this November.

The Berkeley Chamber of Commerce sponsors this annual gourmet food and wine festival, which features local cuisine and wine presented by over 40 restaurants and wineries.

The event is a fundraiser for the community and is the most popular yearly event featured by the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce. Vendors from across the region participate in displaying their cuisine, wines, merchandise, and arts and crafts, with attendees coming from neighboring cities throughout the valley.

Local printing companies are often called upon to supply printed materials for festivals of this type including banner and poster printing. Banners are used frequently as they are highly visible and attract attention to targeted areas. Posters are an economical form of merchandising an event, as they can be printed en masse and displayed strategically throughout the area, promoting the event to people passing by.

Vendors normally have business cards available at their booths for the purpose of generating future business. They may consult print companies, who can provide business card printing quickly and efficiently with a wide variety of choices and themes.

The Berkeley Chamber of Commerce has information about the event, along with vendor applications available on their website. Also posted online is information about past festival activities and participants. Interested parties may also contact the chamber directly by calling 510-549-7000.

The scheduled date for the event is November 11 and it will be held from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the Doubletree by Hilton, located at 200 Marina Blvd.
