Harvest Moon Festival

Submitted by on August 28, 2011 – 10:24 pmNo Comment

There’s something new this fall at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia: the Harvest Moon Festival set for October 6 through 9, 2011.

Of course, Road Trips Gardeners, you already know that Callaway Gardens is 13,000 acres of Georgia countryside in the Appalachian Mountains with the “world’s largest” azalea display, one of North America’s biggest butterfly conservatories and the vegetable garden where PBS’ “The Victory Garden” is filmed, but this festival (with a gate price of $85 per person) brings music to the garden along with celebrity chef Claire Robinson, host of the Food Network’s popular “5 Ingredient Fix.”

Performers will include Shawn Colvin, Nic Cowan, Joe Purdy, The B-52s, Parachute, Dread Clampitt, Allgood, Gin Blossoms, John Hiatt, Shawn Mullins, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and Mat Kearney.

The four-day festival is intended as a celebration of the harvest as well as man and nature’s fruitful coexistence, combining farm-to-table foods, eco-centric vendors, cooking and gardening demonstrations, and activities for children.

Callaway Gardens, 60 minutes southwest of Atlanta and 30 minutes north of Columbus, is owned and operated by the non-profit Ida Cason Callaway Foundation.
