Harvest Fest Dinner
September 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Held on the Farm grounds, under a tent draped with twinkling lights, Harvest Fest is a magical evening, featuring seasonal fare by local farmers and chefs, live music and more. Wine and signature cocktails will be flowing! In addition to fab food and drinks, there will be auctions, including a variety of exclusive culinary, garden, and travel experiences, such as private chef dinners in Wakeman’s Tim’s Kitchen Space; VIP trips throughout the Caribbean and to Watch Hill’s luxe Ocean House resort, a Wine Wall, and a Paddle Raise to help us raise funds for 2022.
It’s a FUN-Raiser!
More than just a celebration of food, farm and fun, the event is designed to raise funds to support youth education programs and outreach. Harvest Fest donations have allowed us to provide a record number of FREE camperships to kids from Horizons Bridgeport and families on a limited income.
Seating is Extremely Limited + Tickets Sell Out Extremely Fast!
This is a communal seating event, so you may be sitting next to “new friends.” It’s difficult to hold “half” or “partial” tables at an event this large, so we will seat you where space allows.
However, if you have a group of 8 people total, we feature a special roped off area to guarantee your own table. One “point person” purchases the entire table of 8 on behalf of the group. IMPORTANT: We will send the point person a separate email. He/she will collect the names, email addresses, and entree choices of all 8 people at the table and return the document to us by August 30.
Sorry! We cannot accommodate special dietary restrictions. The chef will create the evening’s menu based on what’s best in the local markets, so the seasonal offerings may vary from the description below. Our Entree/Dinner is Braised Short Ribs with seasonal accompaniments. Those who would prefer a vegetarian option must request the Vegetarian Entree (Moroccan Vegetable Tagine with Tomatoes, Pears, Prunes, Carrots, Eggplant, Sweet Potatoes and Parsnip) during the registration process OR (for tables of 8) through your table’s point person. Due to large numbers, we cannot accommodate changes later.
We look forward to seeing you at the Farm!
We live in uncertain times. Regrettably, if the event is cancelled due to Covid (or any other reason), we cannot issue refunds, as we have put considerable time, energy and resources into planning our largest annual fundraiser. We must pay the vendors, musicians, auctioneer, rentals, caterers, and all expenses. Any funds remaining after cancellation will be donated to the Farm’s children’s educational programs.
The cocktail hour for this event is entirely outside. However, the rest of the evening’s festivities move inside a tent. If the weather is nice, we will strive to keep open a few panels for maximum air flow, however, if it’s cold or rainy, we must close the panels. At the time of this writing, masks are not required outdoors or under the tent, but they will be required inside our facility. Kindly wear a mask when using the restrooms. If you’re comfortable wearing a mask throughout the evening, feel free
