Sonoma County Harvest Fair

October 3, 4 & 5, 2014


Chef Demonstrations

Be sure to come early and enjoy a great opportunity to learn culinary techniques from our local experts.  These demonstrations have been scheduled before the wine tasting pavilion opens so you can get the most from your Harvest Fair experience.  Admission to the chef demos as well as all the other activities (other than tasting) are FREE!  Chef Demos are located in the Harvest Fair Marketplace (Hall of Flowers).

Join us for our own version of “Happy Hour” as we assemble a great Culinary Team to prepare a special food presentation before doors open for our Friday Night Grand Tasting.

A list of this years Chef Demonstrations coming soon..

Check out who hosted last year's demonstrations!
