Main Street Fort Dodge is hosting the second Farm 2 Fork Dinner in Fort Dodge Saturday, August 28.

"We showcase local foods grown by local people prepared by downtown restaurants and caterers,” stated Kris Patrick, executive director. “The Gabriel Alves trio will be entertaining.” Changes are being made to ensure the safety of those attending. Round tables of 6-8 will be used for social distancing.

The distinctive event captures the talents of many Fort Dodge groups bringing them together for this exclusive opportunity. Featuring appetizers from The Fox and the Fork Catering, and the five-course meal catered by Olde Boston’s. The special menu created for the event includes apples from the Community Orchard, wine from Soldier Creek Winery, locally crafted beer from River Hops Brewing, entrée supplied by Sawyer Meats, and vegetables purchased locally. Completing the meal, The Dariette will create a specialty dessert with specially blended coffee from Central Perk and Dessert.

Tables of 6 are $400. This includes the five-course meal and beverages including wine and beer. Individual tickets are available for $60 for first-come-first-served seating.

“Our partnership with GreenState Credit Union allowed us to host this event. Their sponsorship of the event and support of downtown Fort Dodge is unparalleled. We appreciate the great response for this event and support from local businesses purchasing tables, without the tremendous support of our service providers and volunteers this event would be just a dream.”
