Join us for the sixth annual Lehigh Valley Harvest fundraiser! Over 30 restaurants, farms, wineries, breweries, and other local food providers will give participants the opportunity to taste the Valley’s most imaginative cuisine from its finest chefs, most dedicated farmers, and freshest locally grown ingredients.
“We are inviting people to come out and taste the wonderful flavors of fresh, locally grown food,” says Lynn Prior, Director of the Greater Lehigh Valley chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local®. Each restaurant will offer a menu item containing at least two ingredients sourced from farms within the Lehigh Valley. Local farmers, wineries, breweries, and specialty food producers will also be present providing samples of their distinctive products.
In addition to great food, attendees will be invited to watch demonstrations on preparing and preserving the harvest. And a silent auction will offer the chance to win one of many food-related and locally made prizes. VIP attendees will receive limited early admission, a special welcome cocktail, guided wine and beer pairings, and entry in an exclusive VIP raffle.
Tickets are available for purchase online or at participating locations ($25 in advance / $30 at door; Students, Seniors: $20 (must provide ID at door); VIP Tickets: $75).
Proceeds will benefit both the Greater Lehigh Valley chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local® and the Seed Farm, along with their programs to improve the Lehigh Valley local food economy. Call BFBL-GLV at 610-703-6954 or visit BuyLocalGreaterLehighValley.org.
