Beardsley celebrates fall harvest

KNOXVILLE, TN – Visit Beardsley Community Farm for a free, family-friendly community event on Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 1pm to 5pm. The Harvest Festival will celebrate the farm, the community, and all things fall. Enjoy free food, children’s activities, live music, and tours of the farm. Parking will be available in front of the Education Center, at the Wesley House, Mobile Meals, and the Ed Cothren Pool. Come dressed in your Halloween costumes.

Enjoy free chili with Flour Head Bakery Bread. The chili will be created by our friends at KARM, and the greens and ice cream will be prepared by UT Culinary School. Much of the produce in the chili, greens, and ice cream is sourced directly from CAC Beardsley Community Farm.

This event is perfect for kids! Children’s activities will include paper hats, face painting, ring toss, and nature crafts. There‚Äôs something fun for every child to enjoy. Don’t forget that Halloween costumes are encouraged. Carve your own pumpkin and bring the finished jack o’ lantern to Harvest Festival.
