Fall is harvest time and there’s no better way to celebrate the bounty of the season than with a day of craft beers, food from local restaurants and live music. You can partake in such an event on October 19 when Somerville Local First presents its 5th Annual Harvest Fest at the Arts at the Armory.
Sponsored by Eastern Bank, Harvest Fest is a celebration of all things local and helps Somerville Local First build and sustain a vibrant local economy all year long. By attending the event, you’re not only guaranteed a good time, but you’re supporting a vital local organization that helps make Somerville the place we all want to live, work and play!
And what better way is there to celebrate our love for all things local than with beverages from an all-Massachusetts contingent of breweries? I can’t think of any and if you attend Harvest Fest, you’ll get to sip beers and libations from Bantam Cider, Berkshire Brewing Company, Blue Hills Brewing Company, Clown Shoes, Cisco, Harpoon, Mystic Brewing Company, Mayflower, Notch Brewers, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Rapscallion and Slumbrew.
In addition to the brews, many of Somerville’s top restaurants will be providing tasty treats for the event. Harvest Fest attendees can look forward to sampling food from Casa B, Pescatore, Eat at Jumbo’s and Olde Magoun’s Saloon, with other restaurants to be confirmed soon.
No party would be complete without entertainment. The Pennies, Hornography, Holmes Band and The Sun and the Moon will rocking the stage during Harvest Fest. And new this year, attendees will have the chance to play carnival games while they sip and savor.
Harvest Fest takes place during two sessions on Saturday, October 19, one from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. and the other from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Tickets are $35 for general admission and if you’re looking to sweeten the experience, snag a V.I.P. ticket for $55. In addition to everything mentioned above, the V.I.P. tickets get you into the event quicker, secure you a spot at the beer garden and guarantee you a special souvenir pint glass.
