Our Signature Events
Slow Sips. Doesn’t that sound refreshing? That’s the purpose of these get togethers: to refresh and inspire our commitment to eating well and supporting locals. The chef will create a special dish and beverage option for the evening based on a local theme, in addition to the regular menu items. Then we’ll hear a bit about how and why they choose to use clean food and to work with local growers. Slow Sips is an open invitation. No advanced tickets, no reservations, just an opportunity to meet and mingle with others who share the same passion for food. All Slow Sips are usually mid-week and start at 5:30 unless otherwise noted.
Seed to Soil Conference. Join with a community of gardeners working to preserve our agricultural heritage and teach a love of gardening to all generations. Features a seed swap, demonstrations and information tables, several round table discussions and hands-on workshops.
Farm-A-Q. On-farm barbeque extravaganza! We have wild foraged foods, heritage breed chickens, ducks, pigs and beef, fish from our waters, fresh seasonal berries, and the first heirloom veggies of summer, all in the hands of our region’s most talented chefs. Fun for the whole family!
Heirloom Harvest Barn Dinner. Co-sponsored with Heirloom Harvest Project. A multi-course dinner led by Chef Evan Mallett of Black Trumpet Bistro. Participating Seacoast chefs each prepare one course highlighting Heirloom vegetables grown by Seacoast farmers.
25-Mile Thanksgiving Dinner. Celebrate Thanksgiving with the Slow Food Community. SFS provides heritage turkeys. Guests are requested to bring a potluck dish that contains at least one ingredient sourced within 25 miles of your home.
Slow Food Seacoast hosts events monthly, except in December.
