This year, we’ve added a new element before the Restaurant Walk to get you ready to embark on your roving culinary adventure! The Idaho Wine Commission will be taking time out of their busy Harvest Season to provide a sampling of up-and-coming Idaho Wines during ticket registration from 4pm – 5pm. In case you haven’t heard, our neighbors in the Snake River Valley rated #2 on a new list Redbook Magazine’s list of “America’s Top Wine Destinations.” At the Sun Valley Harvest Festival, you can see for yourself with a weekend full of opportunities to try amazing wines from right here in our Gem State. Move on over, potatoes!

SV Magazine Sponsors a Foodie Favorite, the Harvest Festival Restaurant Walk

RestaurantWalkChristinasFor the fourth year in a row, Sun Valley Magazine is sponsoring the always popular Harvest Festival Restaurant Walk. On Friday, September 20th, from 5pm – 7pm you’ll get the opportunity to roam the town of Ketchum on a beautiful autumn evening, wine in hand, with family and good friends (while making new ones along the way). The 2013 Harvest Festival Restaurant Walk will feature 19 different restaurants, all of which will offer tastings of seasonal cuisine with local ingredients that will delight your taste buds and incite your culinary curiosities. Also, get a chance to imbibe some delicious wines and local craft beers and experience how they play off different food pairings. Space is limited and this event is sure to sell out, so buy your tickets today!

Here’s a review of the good times the SV Magazine team had at a past Harvest Festival: “We Came, We Saw, We Imbibed, We Indulged.”

The SVHF River Guide Cooking Demonstration: The Ultimate Moveable Feast!

RiverGuideEvery year the Sun Valley Harvest Festival brings local Idaho river rafting companies to the River Guide Cooking Demo for an opportunity to tout their culinary skills and give us a taste of “glamping” (glamour camping) without the tents and sleeping bags. During the event, you can learn the tips and tricks of food preparation in the back country as these river guides showcase what they do best: cook incredible food over an open grill and in a Dutch oven, fireside or riverside, without leaving a trace.

This year we’ve added some fun new features to our event to make this day even more memorable. Event sponsor and online travel publication Concierge Q will bring media personality Mat Gershater to host the party, as well as live music by Spike Coggins.  You’ll also have the opportunity mingle with the chefs as they prepare full brunch you to enjoy topped off with Michelle Sparking Wine. Don’t miss this truly unique Idaho experience, and the ultimate moveable feast!
