A Plethora of Food, Wine, Beer, and Events: Harvest Idaho; One Bite at a Time

Week 5  September 26 – October 2

Get-togethers and festivals are synonymous with the fall season. The cool crisp temperatures combined with the fall harvest create a celebratory atmosphere.  Our taste buds crave warm hearty dishes paired with full-bodied libations.  We hunger for a “last summer hurrah.”  Savor the season.  Tap into the local flavors and celebrations and Harvest Idaho: One Bite at a Time.  Cheers!
