Last September, 150 Beacon Hillers came together for the first time to share a dinner filled with foods from local farms and fisheries atHarvest on the Hill. The event proved so popular that it will be held again September 6, and residents wishing to be notified when tickets go on sale are encouraged to email [email protected].
Seating is limited to 150 guests for the three-course feast of locally grown and harvested foods served at one long candlelit table set outside on Chestnut Street, stretching from Charles to West Cedar streets, according to the event organizers James Houghton, Gordon Burnes and Suzanne Besser. The dinner, catered by the Beacon Hill Bistro, will begin with champagne aperitifs and appetizers at 6 pm, followed by a medley of local vegetables, fruits, cheeses, meats, fish and desserts served from 7-9 pm.
Tickets for the three-course dinner are $150 per person and include wine paired with each course. Tickets will be available early August for Beacon Hill residents over the age of 21 on a first come/first serve basis. There will be a limit of two tickets per individual. All proceeds will be used to cover the cost of the event; extra funds, if any, will be donated to the Beacon Hill Civic Association’s Preservation and Beautification Fund.
