The 5th annual Food·Farm·Film·Wine Festival will be held in Paonia August 16-18, and features timely food documentary films, tours of organic farms and wineries throughout the North Fork Valley and events to highlight the fresh, organic food being produced in the valley. Local chefs will pair with farms to create appetizer tastings on Friday before the film, a Farm-to-Table Dinner will be served on Saturday and Sunday Brunch will be at a local farm. This weekend event is sponsored by Slow Food Western Slope, First State Bank of Colorado, Avalanche Cheese, Valley Organic Growers Association and the Town of Paonia.
Proceeds of this event will go to Western Slope Conservation Center and Citizens for a Healthy Community to honor their advocacy efforts in helping to preserve and protect the North Fork Valley’s local food system.
Tickets are available for daily events or the whole weekend. More information is available at the Food Farm Film Wine Festival site.
