Urban Barn Dance Coming to Cambridge, October 20, 2011
An event that benefits a non-profit organization focusing on farmers markets is coming to Cambridge in October, and it will include food items prepared by three well-known Boston-area chefs.
An email from Tugboat 23 Consulting indicates that the fourth annual Urban Barn Dance will be held on Thursday, October 20 at the Dante Alighieri Center on Hampshire Street in Kendall Square. The event, which starts at 6:30 PM, is a harvest celebration that will have chefs Bob Sargent of Flora in Arlington, Chris Schlesinger of East Coast Grill in Cambridge, and Paul O'Connell of Chez Henri in Cambridge build a menu from such places as Kimball's Fruit Farm in Pepperell, Austin Brother Farms in Belchertown, Siena Farms in Sudbury, Danish Pastry House in Medford, and Hamilton Orchards in New Salem. In addition to food, music (with dancing) will also be provided, as well as a silent auction.
Tickets to the 2011 Urban Barn Dance cost $50, with proceeds benefiting The Federation of Mass Farmers Markets, an organization that works with farmers, consumers, and communities to help maintain a strong farmers market system within the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
