Farm to Fork Dinner on Hillsboro Main Street
The Hillsboro Downtown Partnership (HDP), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, will be holding a Farm to Fork dinner as a fundraiser on Main Street in downtown Hillsboro, Oregon. All proceeds will go back to the HDP to further promote business and community events in the downtown area. The event is slated to take place on Friday, July 15th, the night before Celebrate Hillsboro in conjunction with the Downtown Block Party.
The event is taking place while the streets are already being closed at 5pm for the Hillsboro Downtown Block Party, which goes on after the dinner and includes beer gardens and live music. The dinner will be held between 2nd and 3rd avenues, literally on Main Street.
Food will be sourced from local farms and ranches, with each course being prepared by a local downtown restaurant, paired with a local farm. They will work together to make each course something special, and local. There will also be beer and wine pairings with each course from local breweries and vineyards.
“Our purpose is to highlight the rich agriculture of the region in conjunction with our downtown restaurants. It seemed a community dinner would be the perfect tie in with Celebrate Hillsboro to highlight the agriculture meets business theme that is consistent in this city.” – Saira Saiddiqui, HPD Executive Director
More information about this event will be released in the coming months as planning is completed. For information, please contact the Hillsboro Downtown Partnership at 503-640-6145.
