The Slow Food Fall Picnic is a truly unique celebration of Oklahoma’s food traditions and a great place to enjoy friends, family and fellow Slow Fooders and people who care about eating well and local! Last year we had almost 500 guests in attendance - and would expect a similar number to attend this year. Sierra Club's Cimarron Group is joining Slow Food OKC this year as our principal sponsor of the event! Thank you Sierra Club.
The Fall Picnic will be held on the gorgeous 9-acre grounds of the Harn Homestead.
Food will be prepared by some of the fines Oklahoma City chefs using the finest local ingredients. The menu will be sure to be delicious and will be a gourmet twist on traditional picnic concepts. We’re changing out the menu this year, so look for new and exciting items.
We are lining up exciting local food providers. Choc Beer will be generously providing beer and we will also have fine wines and other refreshments. Elemental Coffee Roasters will be brewing up wonderful coffee.
Again this year, we will be serving family style – which means no lines - we’ll serve dinner at 4:30. If you cannot arrive in time we will make every effort to serve you. Food for the kids will be available at a “kids’ table”.
We will have a full slate of Oklahoma food producers who will be available to speak with our guests about the foods they produce. Local community organizations will also be on hand to speak with guest.
There will be live music by Buck Goucher and outdoor seating under the trees on the grounds of this original homestead. We will host old fashioned picnic activities for families and for the little ones we will have a petting zoo, pony rides, a trackless train, picnic games and face painting. We will also have a vegetable arts and crafts table. Allen Parlier will be leading our composting efforts.
We promise something for everyone and hope to have perfect weather like we had last year, so come and bring friends and family!
Tickets are $30 per person without alcoholic beverages and $35 per person with alcoholic beverages – if purchased by September 27th (or $30/ $35 per person if purchased after that date) – check or paypal in advance. We ask you to please reserve early - we try to offer as much locally produced food as possible, which means we can't just run over to the store to buy the picnic foods. Children 12 and under are free.
Please book early - we work with local producers for many of the ingredients and need to know if you plan to come. Send this email to family and friends alike. Due to the popularity of this event - you must reserve in advance or you may not be able to attend.
This is a rain or shine event.
