'Harvest Fest: A Celebration of Food from Field to Table' will be held Sept. 20
Combine generous portions of food and drink, a dash of local flavor, and two worthwhile causes and you have the recipe for “Harvest Fest: A Celebration of Food from Field to Table.” The event runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 at the American Legion Hall in the Warsaw Village Park.
Now in its sixth year, Harvest Fest uses a food sampling format to celebrate local growers, restaurants and culture. For one price, attendees can taste a variety of local food and drink in a farm-market atmosphere that also includes raffles and family friendly activities.
The money raised will benefit The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming and the Wyoming County Business Education Council (BEC). The Arc provides services to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The BEC assists local youth in becoming productive workers, lifelong learners, and better prepared for career choices.
Participating vendors include Byrncliff Resort and Conference Center, Deer Run Winery, Finger Lakes Cookie Company, Gordon and Karen Almeter, HLW Acres Poultry Processing, Honeygirl Gourmet, KidStart, The Lumber Yard Restaurant, Perry School Hightunnel & Garden, Pioneer FFA, the Wyoming County Dairy Princess, and Yummies.
Harvest Fest is made possible by a contribution from M&T Bank, with additional funding from Genesee Valley Federal Credit Union, and Farm Credit East.
Admission is $10 per person, and children 10 years old and under are free.
