TerraVita’s ninth year will wrap up with our signature event. The Fall Fête includes a lot of amazing food and drink with live bluegrass! It gets larger this year, featuring both an Artisan Tent and more than 40 chefs and food artisans from across the state of North Carolina - representing the coast, the mountains, and everything in between. In addition, two dozen beverage producers will offer sustainably-sourced beverages from across the globe - including microbrews; spirits; craft sodas; organic coffees; drinking vinegars; and biodynamic, organically-grown, and natural wines. Live music by the Chatham Rabbits will offer great on-site entertainment!
For the VIP experience, guests will enter the Artisan Tent, sponsored by Randolph County Tourism and the Seagrove Potters, at Noon and enjoy signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres by Hummingbird for the first half hour, then have the opportunity to enjoy the big tent 30 minutes earlier than standard admission, beginning at 12:30 pm.
