THE HARVEST FEAST DELIVERS FALL DELIGHTS
Seasonal colonial food, fall contests, live music, and historical drama make for fantastic fall fun!
Riley’s Farm Theatre Company is proud to present their beloved autumnal dinner theatre event – The Harvest Feast – in scenic Oak Glen this November! The Hawk’s Head Public House on Riley’s Farm will host the original production, which is directed by Nicholas Riley and set in the American colonies in the 1770s. The Harvest Feast dinner event is held in a charming candle-lit colonial pub and features a farm-fresh feast, tomahawk throwing, live music and 18th century dancing, a toast contest, and interactive heart-warming historical drama.
Dinner at The Harvest Feast is served in traditional removes (or courses), and includes freshly baked Sally Lunn bread with pumpkin soup, apple cheddar muffins, corn chowder, bubble and squeak, savory English roast beef, and fresh apple dumplings for dessert. Fans of “farm-to-table” fare will appreciate the rich flavors of the pumpkin soup that is made by local artisans in small batches with our Riley’s Farm-grown Cinderella pumpkins.
In between removes, guests are given the opportunity to raise their pewter tankard high and offer up a toast for all to hear. A warm spirit of gratitude fills the public house as guests share about the things that make them thankful, the people who support and inspire them, and their appreciation for the bounty of the harvest. Old-fashioned activities and contests round out the jovial autumnal evening, and giant hand-dipped caramel apples and freshly baked five-pound apple pies are presented as prizes for the contest victors.
