Winter Park Harvest Festival 2012

The Third Annual Celebration of Central Florida’s Burgeoning Local Food Scene Continues to Grow

A Local Folkus continues its commitment to the local food movement by celebrating the third annual Winter Park Harvest Festival on Saturday, November 17 from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Throughout the day, a local producer-only market in Central Park’s West Meadow will offer festival-goers the chance to gather up all the ingredients to create a completely local Thanksgiving meal.

The Winter Park Harvest Festival promises an action-packed day! Chipotle kids corner activities, live folk music, cooking demonstrations, health and homesteading seminars, and do-it-yourself gardening sessions will offer a chance to learn more about building a healthy and vibrant local food system. A food court will offer a variety of fresh flavors from food trucks to popsicle stands, and an adjacent beer garden will provide locally brewed options to refresh your palates.

As you enjoy the first hint of cool autumn air and the harmonies of our area’s finest musical talent, you can stroll through the mobile community garden and admire the garden boxes grown by local schools, churches, families, and other organizations. Keep an ear out for your name as a raffle will be drawn throughout the day for Harvest Festival “market money” and other prizes!

The City of Winter Park’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Board will provide a bike valet for your convenience, so enjoy a nice ride to the festival al fresco, and join your local chefs, farmers, artisan producers, and neighbors for this one-of-a-kind celebration of Central Florida’s harvest!

The Winter Park Harvest Festival is an event produced by the local food events and advocacy organization, A Local Folkus, and in partnership with Central Florida’s upcoming local food hub, East End Market.
