5th Annual Pesto Festo
Join Slow Food Knoxville and friends for the 5th Annual PESTO FESTO!
This year we will head east to Riverplains Farm in Strawberry Plains, TN where they have friendly farmers, beautiful views, and an abundant garden to share with us.
Arrive early on June 30th, around 5PM, for Farm Tours, Lawn games for kids, and to enter the Pesto Contest! Bring your dancing shoes because we will have live music for the evening!
A locally-sourced, Italian-inspired dinner prepared by the Hot Mama Soup's Casey Littell, The Night Owl Cafe's Jody Marchant, and Slow Food Volunteers will be served family style at 6:30, with music under the stars to follow . . .
Please bring your own place setting including plate and/or bowl, utensils, and a beverage container, along with beverages of choice and a blanket to sit on before the meal begins if you wish; the meal will be served at tablecloth adorned tables with chairs provided.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in carpool arrangements.
