The public is invited to a farm to table Harvest Dinner in Curwood Castle Park, Sunday, September 11, 5pm. The Shiawassee Arts Center, partnering with the Owosso Public Schools Culinary Arts Department and Food Services on this special event, will be offering an outdoor five-course meal featuring locally sourced and prepared creative dishes.
Paired with live music by Pooh Stevenson and Jim Spring, good conversation in a beautiful setting along the Shiawassee River should make for a perfect summer evening. According to SAC Executive Director, Piper Brewer, this is the first time, as far as she knows, that a public farm to table dinner of this size has ever been offered to our community. “This event will showcase so many of our county’s wonderful assets — our farmers, growers, schools and students. If this Harvest Dinner is a success we hope that it may become an annual community event.
A portion of the proceeds of the $35 per person ticket will benefit the Owosso Cares Food Backpack Program, which supplies food to nearly 200 preschool to high school students twice a month. To make reservations by September 5 call the Arts Center 989.723.8354. In case of inclement weather the dinner will be held the following Sunday, September 18, 5pm.
As an added attraction the “Made in Owosso” historic exhibition, located in the Arts Center, Curwood Castle, the 1836 Comstock Cabin and the Woodard Paymaster Building, will still be on display and available for viewing at no charge before, during and after the Harvest Dinner. This exhibit, which continues thru September 18, showcases many of the manufacturing and retail companies and products that have made the city of Owosso unique over the course of 150+ years.
