UPDATE, Sept. 19– Event is canceled.
The harvest season will be celebrated at the fourth annual Farm to Table Dinner in downtown Savannah.
Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau is hosting the Farmers Market themed event focusing on community connection, locally grown food awareness, and a fall celebration.
The outdoor dinner is on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the new Savannah Market set against the backdrop of Savannah’s downtown.
The menu will be comprised of regional and seasonal food featuring locally raised meats and vegetables. Preparing the meal will be Kings of Cooks Catering and the local UT Extension and 4-H teams serving. Guests will enjoy meats, vegetables, breads, cheeses and desserts.
“We love the idea of gathering in the fall, when the air is beginning to feel crisp and folks will enjoy an outdoor gathering,” says Beth Pippin, Hardin County Tourism director. “It’s a perfect fit for a celebration of combining good food, good friends for a good cause. Our local farmers and bakers come together with the 4-H kids to share food and fellowship. Any time spent on educating our youth is time well spent.”
She said all event proceeds support agri-tourism and the local 4-H program. Tickets for the fourth annual farm to table dinner are now for sale at the Tennessee River Museum, 495 Main St., in downtown Savannah.
Seating is open at 6 p.m. for drinks and appetizers, with dinner to be served at 6:30 p.m.
