Harvest Feastival

Mark your calendars for the 2018 event, to be held on September 20. See below for last year's program and stay tuned for this year's Feastival line-up (to be announced soon). 

Grab your friends and colleagues for a night of food, art and culture. Start things off with a little cocktail & conversation at the Alumni Centre, and then head just a few steps away for a feast featuring fall favourites from the UBC Farm. Before your last mouthful of dessert or sip of wine, be sure to plan your after-dinner entertainment at one of the many special shows and exhibits planned just for you at UBC’s world-class Arts and Culture District.

Will you be letting dinner settle as you soak in UBC’s Symphony Orchestra or grooving the night away at DJ Dave Mac's famous live Soul Night at the Museum of Anthropology? Whatever you choose, Harvest Feastival is the perfect way to kick off the fall season.

When: September 28 from 4 to 10 pm
Where: University Commons (outside the AMS Nest) and Arts & Culture District
