On Friday, Sept. 12, the Cobblestone Project will party for a purpose during the first annual Harvest Party at Cobblestone Farm, located at 5494 W. Wedington Drive in Fayetteville, Ark. The event is hosted by IFCO and will kick off with a Children’s Seedling Soiree from 3-6 p.m., complete with fun and engaging activities for kids of all ages, including harvesting fall produce, bobbing for apples, horseback riding and more. Kiddos can even dance along to the music of the Ozark Celtic Band while enjoying yummy snacks, which will be provided. 

“The Seedling Soiree is going to be an awesome party for kiddos. There is something for all interest and age levels,” said Casey Dolan, committee chair. “Not only will the kids be having a blast but they will be learning how to give back to the community.”

That evening, an adult-only Home Grown Harvest Party will start at 7 p.m. This fun-filled party is packed with live rock and country music from local bands Breaking Silence and Cousin Smitty. Partygoers can also tantalize their taste buds with chef-created specialty cuisine from Kind Kitchen, The Farmer’s Table and Jen Lewis, while topping it off with brew house beverages from Core Brewing and Distillery and Ozark Beer Company.

“The Harvest Party will be a fun event that will allow us to share our story, raise awareness and funding to continue to provide a fresh produce solution to hunger relief and assistance to community partners,” said Watts.

Tickets are $5 for children under the age of 12, or free with the donation of an art supply, hygiene product or non-perishable food item.  Tickets for adults are $10 for the Children’s Seedling Soiree and $40 for the Home Grown Harvest Party only. Adult day combination ticket prices and family rates can be viewed at the Cobblestone Project website.*

Poverty, especially when it’s close to home, can seem like a daunting problem. But thanks to the dedicated volunteers of the Cobblestone Project and their mission of fulfilling the most basic of human needs, positive change is happening.
