Festival Engaging Agriculture Sustainability To The Table (FEAST). This event will feature fares from only Merced County Farms, which will be artfully prepared by local area celebrity chefs, highlighting our wonderful and diverse food cultures of this Central Valley Region.
This event is a joint effort of the Merced Certified Farmers Market, California Women for Ag, Merced College, Downtown Neighborhood Association and the Merced Main Street Association.
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 19th AT 6:30 PM
*Important: Once tickets are purchased they’re not able to be moved. Make certain that your party is complete prior to your purchase.
Our goal of this farm-to-table event is to explore new & interesting ways to connect Merced County residents to the local foods & the farming community that produces them. This mission will be accomplished by presenting FEAST dinner guest with a multi-course meal with menu creations based around what agricultural products are in season, harvested from farmer’s fields in Merced County. Our dinner hosts will include local dignitaries & celebrities who will greet attendees & be assigned by local FFA, 4H & vocational food service students with presenting small bites during our pre-dinner festivities.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20th AT 6:00 PM
