Tickets are still on sale for Local First's annual Fork Fest celebration at Romence Gardens to take place on Thursday, October 23 from 5-9 p.m.

The fourth annual event will feature local food and drink from over 40 participating vendors. Brewery Vivant beer, Fenn Valley wine and Vander Mill cider will be available for purchase. Live music will be performed by Faux Grass Quartet.

"We have a great agricultural abundance here in Michigan, and at Fork Fest we see that first hand and celebrate it in a memorable way," said Elissa Hillary, Executive Director of Local First. "Attendees will meet and try samples from food entrepreneurs that build our connection to place and contribute to the uniqueness of our community.

New to this year's event will be pop-up presentations from local culinary representatives such as the MSU Extension, GVSU's student farm, Hope Farms, Earthkeeper Farm and Urban Roots Farm.
