Alcohol. Butchering. Cookbooks. You know: the ABCs. The ABCs of local eating, that is, and they’re just the beginning of the unbelievably comprehensive offerings at the fourth-annual Philadelphia Farm & Food Fest, which will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Sunday, April 12. Team ProTip is already looking forward to the once-yearly opportunity to chat with talented area farmers, slurp PA-distilled spirits in the Local Libations Lounge and learn a thing or two from our favorite cookbook authors during their live demo sessions; if you’re anything like us, you’ll want to lock down your ticket right away, and lucky you – they’re on sale now.
Admission starts at just $20 per person, and includes five hours of interactive exhibits that range from a CSA Pop-Up Shop to Teaching Classrooms where guests will learn about everything from butchering techniques to urban homesteading (did someone say ‘backyard chickens’…?) Additional tiers of admission include access to the legendary Local Libations Lounge, where top wine, beer and spirits pros will pour a guided tasting of the area’s finest adult beverages, plus a special Preview Hour one hour before the doors open to the public – complete with free samples from local coffee roasters to perk up the early birds.
