“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 Winter Park’s 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 with Chipotle kids corner activities, live folk music, cooking demonstrations, health and homesteading seminars, and do-it-yourself gardening sessions.

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.

This Florida Hospital-sponsored community garden will showcase grow boxes tended to by local schools, churches, families, and other organizations.

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.
