Chicken wings have their fest, and so does bacon. 

Now, thanks to a new festival at the Fraze, so will Sliders, Sides and Suds. 

Miami Valley Restaurant Association partnered with the Fraze for the event, which will be held 3-10 p.m. June 24.

Admission to the new festival to be held at the venue at 695 Lincoln Park Boulevard is free. 

Amy Zahora, the association’s executive director, said sliders often go beyond mini burgers. 

‘We are going to have all kinds of sliders,” she said. “We will have a little bit of everything.”

Zahora said 10 to 12 restaurants will likely participate in the event celebrating the mini sandwiches. 

The Dock Food and Spirits in Enon is already planning to bring crabcake sliders, and the Wandering Griffin has signed on to bring Beef on Weck, roast beef on a kummelweck roll.

Revelers will buy food as they go. 

Zahora said sliders have become popular at restaurants. 

“I always look for sliders when I go to a restaurants,” she said. “That’s a good way you can try a lot of different things.” 

The event will also feature music, beer and side dishes. 

Sliders, Sides and Suds is only the latest Miami Valley Restaurant Association collaboration with The Fraze.
