TownVibe and Litchfield Magazine present the food-lover’s party of the year—Savor Litchfield—on Sunday, September 8, 2019, from 1pm to 4pm, held at South Farms in Morris, Connecticut.
Foodies and other fun-loving folk can enjoy tastes and sips from more than 20 restaurants, distilleries, vineyards, and specialty markets from the Litchfield area, all in the beautiful surroundings of the 90-acre South Farms in Morris. In addition to fine cuisine, craft cocktails, artisanal wine, craft beer, and sweets, there will be live music by the Switch Factory, local business pop-up shops, a mixology session by Litchfield Distillery, and an art tent for kids by Art Room Atelier. “Good things happen when people connect over good food,” says TownVibe publisher Geoffrey Morris.
