Foodie Friday: Red, Ripe and Roasted
August 14, 2015
Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is celebrating summer’s bounty with their annual Red, Ripe and Roasted tomato and garlic festival on August 30th. The summer event features delicious dishes, family fun and locally grown goodness in their Outdoor Garden.
The festival is a foodie’s dream-come-true and is the perfect way to savor the flavor of summer! Café Phipps will offer a variety of delicious dishes in addition to a variety of cooking demonstrations. The festival will also feature a Phipps-grown garlic roast as well as a tomato contest, which home gardeners are invited to enter their ugliest, smallest or largest ripe tomatoes for a chance to win special prizes! Additional fun kid-friendly activities include a pot-a-plant station, to engage children of all ages.
Free admittance for Red, Ripe and Roasted and Summer Flower Show, featuring bizarre plants, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. is given to those who donate a bag of fresh produce to the Food Bank. For more event information, visit Phipps.
