1. Local fare

Slow Food Nation

July 13 – July 15

Lovers of local fare and supporters of natural food production unite at the second annual Slow Food Nation. This environmentally-conscious festival spotlights the importance of enlightening consumers to know their food comes from and to inspire modifying unhealthy eating habits. Throughout the event one can expect to sample from variations of local honey, farm-to-table style vendors, and participate in workshops to learn more about how to bring these cooking techniques to their own kitchen.

2. Al fresco dining
