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,” 5:30-7:30pm Wednesday, September 20 at the American Legion Hall in 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 benefits two area not-for-profits: The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming and the Wyoming County Business Education Council (BEC).
Proceeds will be divided equally between The Arc and the 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.
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 age 10 and under are free. For tickets or more information, call Arc of Livingston-Wyoming Event Coordinator Suzanne Johnsen at 658-2828 ext. 133 or visit harvestfest17.eventbrite.com.
