Harvest in the Square is just 8 days away! Plans are well underway for another spectacular event when this fall, over 60 eateries - the largest number in the event's history - will exhibit some of their most celebrated dishes at the 15th Annual Harvest in the Square on Tuesday, September 21st in Union Square Park. This year's participants will present a mouth-watering array of food offerings, with some incorporating ingredients found at our very own Union Square Greenmarket, and others sharing new creations to be featured exclusively at this treasured celebration of community and cuisine.
Harvest in the Square is the Union Square Partnership's annual fundraiser and proceeds from past events have supported countless improvement projects in Union Square Park, including the installation of a new 15,000 sq. ft. playground; the rehabilitation of the Pavilion and the plazas surrounding the north side of the park; the creation of a new seating area in the center lawn; repairs to the park's dog run; and the planting of thousands of ornamental shrubs, perennials, annuals and bulbs to highlight just a few of our efforts.
I believe deeply in the work of the Union Square Partnership, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, and I urge you to support our vital work within the Union Square community. General Admission tickets for entry at 7:30 PM can be purchased via the event webpage at www.harvestinthesquare.org. Tickets are tax-deductible with the exception of $50 per ticket, and readers of A Fine Blog get $20 off when using the promo code "harvest." If you can't make it, consider making a donation to the organization - they do good work and it's 100% tax-deductable and will go a long way towards helping us to ensure we have the needed funds for next spring's efforts.
You won't go home disappointed or hungry.
