Farm to Fork Picnic @ Fearrington Barn
Jun 4 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The 10th annual picnic will feature up to 35 chefs producing tasting size dishes featuring local, seasonal ingredients grown by a local farm the chef is paired with. These partnerships historically result in highly creative collaborations that are as beautiful as they are delicious. The event also spotlights 14 local food artisans and breweries; each will provide samples of their products, along with makers of local wine, coffee and tea.
Live music will be provided by the Chapel Hill bluegrass band Big Fat Gap and The Holland Brothers. For a fun keepsake, be sure to capture your experience in the ZimZoom photo booth!
Tickets for the picnic are $100 per adult, $50 for ages 12-20 (no alcohol), and kids under 12 are free.

Picnic en Blanc – A Bastille Day Celebration @ Heron's Haven
Jul 14 @ 4:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Once again we gather in the spirit of liberté, égalité and fraternité to celebrate Bastille Day. Our venue this year is a lovely 10-acre estate on a pond where we will gather for a Picnic en Blanc on Friday, July 14th, beginning at 4:30pm.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with pain (bread, not actual pain), charcuterie, crudité and, of course, vin. Nibble on these culinary delights to fuel your creativity as you decorate your picnic space, remembering that white is de rigueur.

During the evening, we will have a Blind Bubbles challenge. You will sample three sparkling wines. Can you guess the region and grape?

Dress with éclat, remembering that head-to-toe white is the evening’s theme.

Registrees will receive an email with details on what to bring, etc.
