Combine generous portions of food and drink, a dash of local flavor, and two worthwhile causes and you have the recipe for the 8th annual Harvest Fest culinary celebration.
Tickets are available now for the event, set for 5:30-7:30pm Tuesday, October 1 at the American Legion Hall in Warsaw Village Park.
Harvest Fest uses a food sampling format to spotlight local restaurants, growers, and culture. For one low price of $10, attendees can taste a variety of local food and drink in a farm-market atmosphere that also includes raffles and family friendly activities.
