Farm to Park City is an event intended to celebrate local food by bringing our community together for a collaborative “potluck-style” picnic with food, live music, a guest speakers. Bring your friends and family. Bring a blanket, games, and dinner! We envision an event where people bring delicious, wholesome, locally-grown meals to nourish themselves, their families, and their friends.
