Enjoy fabulous food, local libations, and lively entertainment at Harvest at the Commons, an annual farm to table community feast at the historic grounds of the Grand Traverse Commons on October 7, 2017.​ For the fourth year, the Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities invites you to join us for this premiere community celebration that gathers friends and neighbors to break bread and revel in all that is unique and beloved about northern Michigan.

This Certified Local Food Event features a three-course family-style meal prepared by Traverse City’s own Harvest Restaurant and NMC Culinary Institute, as well as a selection of regional wine, beer and cocktails. ​

Afro-Caribbean Salsa band Grupo Ayé will turn up the heat with their irresistibly danceable rhythms as we celebrate another year of working to protect the environment, strengthen the economy, and build community.

5:00 – 6:00pm, mingling, drinks and raffle
6:15 pm, farm to table family-style meal
8:00 pm, music and dancing with Grupo Ayé
Early access tickets will be available to members on July 24th and on August 7th for past attendees. Tickets open to the general public on August 14th. Proceeds from sales benefit Groundwork’s mission to strengthen the economy, protect the environment, and build community.
