Flint Local 432 Celebrates Legacy of Music and Community —
Downtown Flint’s All-Ages Anchor Hosts Annual Food Fest
Beloved Chefs Return to Celebrate Downtown Flint’s All-Ages Anchor
Flint Local 432, returns with its culinary celebration, Mixdown. Originally presented as a sold out 30th Anniversary Party in 2015, the event returns by popular demand as annual affair.
Friday October 7th, guests will convene from 6-9 PM at the Flint Farmers’ Market, (named one of the 13 American Food Markets You Must Visit Before You Die by Thrillist), and will feature a walk-around tasting, chef demonstrations, a 432 history display, and beer, wine, and cocktail bars.
The Facebook event already has more than 200 RSVPs and it is expected to sell out for the second year in a row. For ticketing information and chef and event announcements, visit the facebook event page.
Mixdown features favorite Flint area culinary talent and national chefs not-to-be-missed. Confirmed attendees include:

With more chef announcements to come!
The event will also feature offerings from Shorts Brewery and specialty cocktails from Ken Laatz of Soggy Bottom.
