First Annual Acworth Locavore Festival: A Food Tasting Event

thevillagestorelogo[1]The Acworth Community Project is proud to announce plans for an exciting event planned for August 28, 2016 from 10am-4pm: The First Annual Acworth Locavore Festival.  It is a fundraiser for The Village Store,  a community owned and operated general store located at 1068 Rt. 123A in South Acworth, New Hampshire.   The event will be held in the back field of the Village Store.

 What is a Locavore Festival?

It’s a public event to showcase local food and beverage producers and local “farm to table” restaurants which will connect local food lovers and consumers to what is being locally grown and produced!

Because of the public’s demand for locally produced food and beverage, the Acworth Community Project is giving the local food-producing community an opportunity to show, sample and sell locally produced foods as part of a huge celebration of what our greater geographic area has to offer in the way of healthy, sustainable, locally cultivated and passionately produced food and beverage.  Anyone attending this event will be able, and encouraged, to see, smell, taste and experience that passion.

The event promises to be filled with delicious food and beverage but will also be offering informational sessions and all the fun and excitement of an incredible country food fair.

The organizers of the event said, “We are interested in letting everyone know about this event, but we are also interested in having people participate as vendors and sponsors. We are planning on having a Festival Booklet which will contain short descriptions and a map of booth placements. We are also offering opportunities for individuals and businesses to advertise in our festival booklet with different sized ads. Finally, we are offering an opportunity for special sponsorship of this event which will afford each sponsor a booth, a speaking slot, a full page ad in the festival guide plus additional exposure of their logo on all of our advertising materials, including links on our website, along with a mention of their business in any media articles about our event.”

Anyone having questions about the event, or anyone having an interest in a sponsorship should please contact Linda Lacasse at 603-835-2486 or email linda@lacasseenterprise.com and anyone interested in advertising in the Festival Booklet can contact Judy Aron at 603-835-2188.

The Acworth Village Store is open Monday-Saturday from 7am-7pm and Sundays from 8am-7 pm.  The phone number there is 603-835-6547. They offer many services including an ATM and a US Post Office.

The Organizing Committee for the Acworth Locavore Festival wants to offer their thanks for all that farmers and food producers do to provide healthy sustenance for the local community.
