Harvest Dinner


Join DCGP for our annual Harvest Dinner! We will be celebrating the growing season, appreciating volunteers, and nominating the next Vegetable of the Year with a socially distanced B.Y.O. picnic in Leif Erickson Park.

Leif Erikson Park

Saturday, September 19th


FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE! Following MDH guidelines, if you plan to attend in person you must first pre-register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/harvest-dinner-2020-tickets-117674729283

Please bring your own picnic (bonus points if you bring a dish using the Vegetable of the Year: Broccoli!) and plan to pack out any waste you generate. Flags will be set out to indicate social-distanced picnic spots throughout the park. Each household will pick a flagged spot and be asked to keep blankets and chairs at least 6ft from other groups. Please wear your mask when you leave your picnic spot.

Nominations and voting for the next Vegetable of the Year will begin at 6pm. Be sure to bring your ideas for the next vegetable to nominate! Feel free to get creative with it; writing poems, dressing up, and passionate speeches are all encouraged.

If you don't feel comfortable attending the event, we will be live-streaming the Vegetable of the Year nominations and voting on Facebook, so that everyone has a chance to participate.

We are excited to share our gratitude for our volunteers, gardeners, the community, and the gorgeous bounty of the season together. We hope you can celebrate with us!
