FarmAde

Date
September 7, 2018 - 17:00 to 20:00
Location
UBC Farm

Square dancing into the sunset, the sizzle from the grills, laughter from the beer gardens, hazy picnics and lawn games. Started in 2001 as a (successful) student-led effort to help save the UBC Farm from residential development. FarmAde has grown over the years into one of the largest annual events at UBC. It marks the beginning of UBC’s school year and the end of the growing season and reliably occurs on one of the first Fridays of September.

FarmAde brings together UBC community members of all ages to celebrate community, local food and local Vancouver talent. The event also brings together organizations and movements that support sustainability, local food, and raise awareness about food security issues.

Admission is always free! Beer and food tickets are sold by cash only. See you there!

Nothing says “cozy” like a night of food, art and culture to bring in the fall season. This year marks the fifth year of Harvest Feastival, an epic feast featuring fresh local food from the UBC Farm, followed by an evening of arts and culture programming. Buy your ticket now! 

To mark the 5th year of the Harvest Feastival, you can vote for which of your favorite dishes of years past you’d like to have again. We’ve also got some special surprises in store that will help you get in the perfect UBC school spirit.

Make a plan with your friends, family or colleagues (or all if you’re feeling really festive) and buy your tickets or table soon. Don’t forget to keep your after-dinner schedule clear for one or two of the many special shows and exhibits planned just for you at UBC’s world-class Arts and Culture District.

Whether you choose the soy ginger sockeye salmon and improv at the Chan or the apple fritter bites and the Museum of Anthropology, we guarantee that you’ll fall in love with #feastival – the perfect way to kick off the fall season.
