Fall is upon us, which means it’s time for Somerville Local First’s (SLF) Fifth Annual Harvest Fest 2013! Presented by SLF Member Eastern Bank, Harvest Fest is one of the premier beer and food tasting events of the year.

Somerville Local First, a nonprofit organization working to build sustainable local economies, will host its fifth annual festival and fundraiser in two sessions on Saturday, October 19, 2013, at the Arts at the Armory. All event proceeds go towards SLF's operating budget to build and strengthen the local movement and local business community in Somerville all year long.

Join Somerville Local First members and local economy advocates far and wide for a day or evening of delicious food from some of Somerville's best local restaurants, local beer from some of the favorite independent brewers from Massachusetts, great live music, games and much more.

This is not your average nonprofit gala and has become one of the most anticipated events in greater Boston. Tickets are on sale now: http://bpt.me/453075.
