Harvest Week

Each year, as the foliage falls before winter's hibernation, Denver food lovers gather 'round communal tables at The GrowHaus for Harvest Week to gobble up goods collaboratively created by local chefs. EatDenver's annual multi-day festival of the local food system serves up six dinners and a single brunch October 4-9 for its 2015 edition.

This year, more than 35 independent restaurants are represented, coming together to host nearly a week's worth of pop-up themed parties, featuring local chefs, fresh ingredients and community celebration. Attendees are encouraged to dress up based on each evening's food and festivities. They are also asked to bring their own place settings and cutlery.

Here's a sneak peek at the 2015 lineup. Don't forget, tickets sell out quickly.
