To celebrate fall's upcoming bounty, EatDenver—an organization that champions local, independently owned restaurants—will mark the return of its annual Harvest Week series of events starting Tuesday, September 23 and running through Saturday, September 27. The four dinners and one finale brunch will take place at the GrowHaus, a nonprofit indoor market, farm, and education center that benefits the surrounding community.
"At the GrowHaus we're trying to build culture using food as the lens," says Coby Gould, executive director of the GrowHaus. "By hosting Harvest Week, we're able to expand that scope and showcase our programs by working with local chefs who are using our produce."
Each event will highlight at least five chefs from various local restaurants, and include passed appetizers, cocktails, and the meal served at a large community table. There's also a theme for each party, and attendees are encouraged to dress up in conversation-piece outfits accordingly, as well as bring their own plate, cutlery, and wine glasses, with prizes awarded for the most creative place setting.
Themes range from Tuesday's Grapes vs. Grains: Rocky Mountain Showdown, to the Feast of Hunters and Gatherers on Thursday, and Saturday's Egg-in-a-Hole brunch. Dinners start at 6 p.m. and the brunch will be at 11 a.m.
Prices vary depending on the event, but are inclusive of all food, beverage, tax, and gratuity. Visit Harvest Week's website for more details and to purchase tickets.
