The Village Feast 2022

October 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Village Feast returns in-person October 16!

Annually, The Village Feast celebrates the Sacramento region’s Farm-to-Fork season, where the
community gathers to enjoy and honor the bounty of local farmers. After two years as an online
event, it returns to its origin as a shared, in-person community experience – this year at two regional venues.

The two simultaneous events will be from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16 at:

  • Great Bear Vineyards, 24800 County Road 101A, Davis, catered by The Buckhorn, and
  • Mulvaney’s B&L, 1215 19th St., Sacramento

Presented by Davis Farm to School and the Les Dames d’Escoffier International, Sacramento, The Village Feast is a
fundraiser for food and agricultural education in the greater Sacramento area. The Village Feast follows the late-summer
feasts of Provence, France, in the Provençal grand aïoli tradition, uniting people and food for a long, leisurely alfresco
meal that stars aïoli — a golden garlic-mayonnaise. All proceeds from The Village Feast support early and continued
education around food and agriculture.

As in years past, each meal begins with appetizers of olives, nuts, local wines and fresh baguettes. The meal is served
family-style, with passed platters of heirloom tomatoes drizzled with local olive oil, steamed and grilled local vegetables,
hard-boiled eggs, and bowls of garlic-scented aïoli. Next comes the grilled lamb and summer white bean salad, then a
fruit galette for dessert.

Les Dames d’Escoffier and Davis Farm to School paired up for this event because of their shared visions and values. Les
Dames d’Escoffier, a philanthropic organization of female leaders in the areas of food, fine beverage and hospitality, gives
scholarships to area women in to further their education in these areas. Davis Farm to School provides garden grants,
organizes farm field trips, and supports farm-fresh food in school meals.

Tickets are $150 per person through Aug. 31, and $165 after that, until sold out. Attendees may reserve full tables of eight
for $1,200 through Aug. 31, and $1,320 after. Tickets are available at

The silent auction will be online, available for anyone to participate between Oct. 2 and 16. It includes dozens of items and
experiences donated by chefs, restaurants, wineries and community members. Participants bid on items by downloading
the free Auctria smartphone app at, and pre-registering.
