Harvest Fest 2018
A Rockin' Evening on the Farm
Tickets On-Sale August 15 for The Food and Wine Event of the Season!
Announcing the sixth-annual farm-to-table Harvest Fest event on Saturday, September 22 at Wakeman Town Farm at 6 p.m. Held on the farm grounds and under a festive tent draped with twinkling lights, Harvest Fest is a magical evening, featuring fabulous seasonal fare and libations, generously contributed by local farmers and prepared by rock star chefs. Wine and signature cocktails will be flowing! In addition to fab food and wines, there will be both a silent and live auction. Guests will bid on smaller "egg-buster" prizes and larger auction items, including a variety of exclusive private food and wine experiences, such as private chef dinners in Wakeman’s Tim’s Kitchen Space, a VIP trip for four to NBA All-Star Weekend 2019 in Charlotte, NC and a gourmet farm picnic for 10, as well as exclusive trips throughout the Caribbean.
It's a FUN-Raiser!
More than just a celebration of food, farm and fun, the event is designed to raise funds to support various youth education programs. This summer, the farm offered a number of camperships that allowed kids from underserved communities, as well as the Fresh Air Fund and even Westporters on a limited income, to take free camps. The goal is to provide transport and experiences to kids and to teach the farm’s motto: "Grow Your Food, Know Your Food."
Seating Note: This is a communal seating event, so you may be sitting next to “new friends.” If you have a group of 8 people total, we will feature a special roped off area to guarantee your own table. We have tried in year’s past to accommodate groups of four to six, but have found that it’s difficult to hold “half” or “partial” tables, so this opportunity is available only to groups of 8 people who purchase their tickets through our events director in one feel swoop with one check to purchase one entire 8-top. To purchase a table for 8, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you ASAP.
