CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess) — Cooking show maven Rachael Ray is teaming up with the Knitting Factory to bring her food and music event “Rachael Ray’s Feedback,” into new markets, with the first expansion headed for Chicago.
Ray, who hosts the Emmy Award winning daytime “Rachael Ray” shows, has been holding the event at various venues in Austin, TX for the past 8 years and the Chicago expansion marks her first attempt to bring the live event to wider audiences.
The event will feature food offerings created by Ray, as well as beer, wine, cocktails and music. Confirmed performances for Chicago include; Grace Potter and Lee Fields & The Expressions on the main stage with other, yet-to-be-announced local Chicago artists, performing on a second stage.
“I’ve spent years as a fan of Rachael Ray and her music and food festival that takes place during the South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin,” said Morgan Margolis, CEO of Knitting Factory Events. “As Knitting Factory’s music “meets food brand” expands with national KF Venues, outdoor curated events and the launch of The Federal Bar across multiple states, it seemed like a natural fit to partner with a like-minded creative team in Rachael Ray. We’re elated to be a part of this launch.” – Staff Writers
