Junior League to throw "farm-to-fork" festival

If you didn't get a ticket in time, or were simply priced out of the $175 "Farm-to-Fork Tower Bridge Dinner" on Sept. 29, here's a way to sample local farm fresh food at less silver spoon prices. The Junior League of Sacramento has jumped onto Sacramento's official farm-to-fork movement, and will throw a "Wine & Dine" event on Sept. 12 at Raley Field. The festival is aligned with the official "farm-to-fork" branding that's spearheaded by the Sacramento Visitors & Conventions Bureau.

A combined 50 vendors representing local restaurants and wineries will provide samples, and some 1,000 folks are expected to attend. Participating wineries include Lava Cap, Renwood, Oak Ridge and Michael-David.

This Grape Escape-ish event costs $40 in advance and $50 at the door. VIP tickets for $95 include a special section for food and wine pairings and wine education. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and proceeds go toward the "Read and Feed Garden," which promotes food and healthy eating.
