The Harvest Celebration is an annual gathering of Community Food Initiatives supporters, donors, and community members invested in food justice and our local food system. It's a way for us to come together and celebrate the phenomenal amount of work that goes into doing all we do, expressing our gratitude for the countless hands that have helped. It's also a chance for everyone to ensure that the work continues, as all proceeds from ticket sales, the silent auction, and donations go towards sustaining our operation.
This year we'll enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres by the talented locavore Pork & Pickles team, live music, a cash bar, silent auction featuring local businesses, and art in the beautiful Dairy Barn galleries.
The 2019 Harvest Celebration will be held at The Dairy Barn Arts Center (8000 Dairy Barn Lane, Athens, OH) from 5:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, October 10th, 2019.
Food for the evening will consist of gourmet seasonal flair featuring offerings from Pork & Pickles. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options will be plentiful.
We will have a Cash Bar for alcoholic beverages.
