Feast Down East will host its annual gourmet farm-to-fork dinner event, Raise the Barn, on May 14, with food prepared by locally renowned chefs.
Raise the Barn supports local farms and fisheries through Feast Down East’s mission to “grow our local food system."
This year’s event will be held on the grounds of the New Hanover County Arboretum at 6206 Oleander Drive, and will feature a tapas-style gourmet dinner using locally grown and raised ingredients sourced through Feast Down East’s food hub or directly from area farms and fisheries.

A wide variety of dishes will be presented by chefs from 22 North, Catch, Ceviche’s, Chef and the Farmer, Hops Supply Co., manna, PinPoint Restaurant, Plantation Village, Rx Restaurant and Bar, Surf House, and UNCW Campus Dining. There will also be desserts from area restaurants and an open bar featuring local beer and wine and a specialty cocktail – Carolina Bourbon infused with Newberry’s Blueberries.
Guest will enjoy music from L Shape Lot as well as corn hole and a silent auction. It is also an opportunity to meet local farmers and chefs at the forefront of the local food movement.  
Proceeds benefit the nonprofit work of Feast Down East, connecting small-scale farms to local markets and improving access to healthy food in underserved communities. Admission is $80 per person or two for $150. Click here for ticket information.
