 “Feast at the Fort”

Back by popular demand – and to the delight of history enthusiasts and foodies throughout the region – Friends of Sutter’s Fort is proud to present “Feast at the Fort” on Saturday evening, September 10, 2016. Coinciding with the city-wide “Farm-to-Fork” effort and after a one-year hiatus due to important restoration projects, this is the sixth year for this unique culinary event held at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP). Tickets go on sale August 1 for the 2016 “Feast at the Fort” that is showcased by a delicious four-course dinner prepared by Sacramento’s top chefs amid a beautiful evening setting inside the historic walls of Sutter’s Fort SHP.  

For each Feast, a different food-focused theme is chosen for the event. In 2016, guests will delight in an exciting menu of history-inspired recipes that showcase a “barrel aged” focal point while also incorporating vibrant locally-sourced ingredients.  

When they first arrive, “Feast at the Fort” guests will be treated to scrumptious appetizers while enjoying local wine and beer tastings provided by Bogle Vineyards, Boeger Winery, Cantina Alley, Lava Cap Winery and New Helvetia Brewing Co. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to watch and interact with chefs as they prepare their culinary creations in period facilities such as outdoor fire pits or in the historic kitchens and on-site bakery. The amazing dishes will be created by chefs from popular restaurants such as Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co., The Patriot Restaurant and Thai Basil & Veg, and served family style. To finish off the meal, guests will enjoy a delicious dessert created by Ettore’s European Bakery & Café. 

With an international flair representative of the types of music enjoyed by emigrants who first came to Sutter’s Fort, live acoustic music will entertain guests and set a lively and festive mood throughout the culinary experience and silent auction.

On September 10, “Feast at the Fort” begins at 6:30 p.m. with dinner served at 7:30 p.m. With an early sell-out expected, tickets can be purchased online beginning August 1 and cost $85 per person.
