Events & Classes
It's our Party, our Farm to Street Party!
We’re celebrating 20 years as part of a growing and vibrant local food community. Food Dance is hosting two give-back events to celebrate and honor the farmers, producers, staff and community that have been essential to our success and growth. Join us in our main parking lot on the corner of Pitcher St. and Water St. From 12-4p we’ll have a Flavor Festival celebrating with all things local: food, drink, music and much more! Starting at 6p take a seat at our Long Table Dinner: 4 courses of local food served family style each with a Michigan wine pairing.
All proceeds from both events will be donated to Fair Food Matters - Growing Matters Garden program.
