Harvest Fest 2013 is October 16


The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming and the Wyoming County Business Education Council (BEC) will present "Harvest Fest: A Celebration of Food from Field to Table" 5:30-7:30pm Wednesday, October 16 at the American Legion Hall in the Warsaw Village Park. Admission is $10 per person, or $25 for a family of four, and includes food tasting, children's games, raffles, and live music. Tickets will be available at the door.


Now in its second year, Harvest Fest will spotlight a wide variety of delicious food tasting items prepared by local chefs, utilizing fresh produce and ingredients from local growers. Participating vendors include the 3 Legged Pig BBQ, Byrncliff Resort & Conference Center, Clover Road Farm, the Club on Silver Lake, Creative Food Ingredients, Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, Karen & Gordon Almeter, Hilltop Lunch Cart, Just the Sweetest Things Bakery, Once Again Nut Butter, Pioneer FFA, Putman's Potatoes at High Valley Farm, Renee's Catering, Sage Family Maple, Sick's Acres Farm, Upstate Niagara, and Wegmans Geneseo.


Additional attractions will include Wyoming County Dairy Princess Michaela Brennan, Fair Queen Natalie McHugh, pumpkin painting, an air rifle raffle, and a 50/50 raffle. Music will be provided by popular rockabilly band Drivin' Memphis, whose set begins at 6:00.


All of the evening's proceeds will benefit The Arc and the BEC. The Arc provides services to developmentally disabled individuals and their families in Livingston and Wyoming Counties. The BEC assists local youth in becoming productive workers, lifelong learners, and better prepared for career choices.


"(Harvest Fest) is a way to celebrate our local growers, our great local chefs and restaurants, and create a social opportunity to get reconnected with members of the Wyoming County community in a farm-market, family atmosphere," says BEC Executive Director Linda Leblond, one of the event coordinators.


Harvest Fest is made possible in part by a generous contribution from M&T Bank. For more information, call Arc of Livingston-Wyoming Public Relations Director Jeff Thomas at 658-2828 ext.128.
