Feast Down East hosts the 4th annual Raise the Barn, Wilmington's premier gourmet farm-to-fork event with food prepared by locally-renowned chefs. The dinner and benefit supports Feast Down East's mission to "grow the local food system" in Southeastern North Carolina. The event will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 6-10pm on the picturesque grounds of the New Hanover County Arboretum. Raise the Barn will feature a tapas-style gourmet dinner using locally grown and raised ingredients, either sourced through the Feast Down East Food Hub or directly from area farms and fisheries. A wide variety of dishes will be presented by Wilmington's top chefs. There will be desserts from area restaurants and an open bar featuring local beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail. Stroll the grounds of the arboretum and enjoy the spectacular food, dancing and other activities taking place throughout the evening, while listening to the music of Brothers Egg. This elegant yet comfortable affair begins with a cocktail hour, followed by a feast of locally-sourced gourmet creations. In addition, there will be a raffle, photo booth, corn hole, and more! A unique opportunity to meet both farmers and chefs at the forefront of our local food movement, Raise the Barn is an experience to remember. The event sold out quickly last year and received rave reviews, so get your tickets before its too late. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit work of Feast Down East, connecting small-scale farms to local markets and improving access for all consumers, including those in underserved communities.
