Grown & Gathered will take place on Sunday, July 23. The dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails in the amphitheater and the dinner will be served in the Pavilion at Founders Park.
Grown & Gathered is a seasonal feast prepared with a rodizio flair by Jamie Dove and Elise Clair and their team from The Main Street Pizza Company and River Creek Farm. The dinner will feature the bounty from 30 local farms and producers. This year, portions of the meal will be served rodizio style, allowing each guest to try all twelve cuts of local grass fed beef, poultry, pork and lamb. While the service will be Brazilian in style, the flavors themselves will represent a mash up of the years Jamie spent living and working in South Korea with the Appalachian roots of the co-creators themselves. Look for bold, spicy, unique flavors, along with traditional peak season Appalachian garden favorites prepared in ways that compliment the grilled meat parade. Vegetarian tickets are also available, and these will include over a dozen grilled pseudo meats and vegetables in place of the meat cuts, such as saitan sausuges, Hempeh, soy, and more. The food will be grilled on site allowing for maximum freshness.
Tickets for the farm-to-table dinner will be $75 per person. Advance tickets for those who attended the 2016 event will go on sale June 14. Tickets to the general public will be available June 16. Last year was a sell out, so we recommend getting tickets early. Tickets can be purchased at the WCEDC offices, 300 E. Main Street, Suite 406, Johnson City or on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/grown-and-gathered-tickets-35220123337?aff=ehomecard
