You can celebrate Thanksgiving a couple days early this Saturday at the O.U.R. Harvest Feastival at O.U.R. Ecovillage in Shawnigan Lake.
“This is a huge evening of gratitude from all of our onsite and offsite family and friends of all the folks of the last 15-plus years!” said the press release for the event. “This is a time to celebrate life, vitality, love, possibilities, inspiration and…what’s next.”
The Ecovillage will provide the main dishes, but ask that community members bring their favourite sides to share, potluck style. The results of a pumpkin pie and crumble “co-opetition” will round out the menu.
The Feastival begins with site tours and updates of new projects from 1-3 p.m. The pie making and a tea will happen from 3-5 p.m., transitioning into cocktails and snacks from 5-6 p.m. Then, at 6 p.m., the Zero Mile Meal Feast begins. At 7:30 p.m. As you digest from the feast, enjoy storytelling, music, face painting and other entertainment.
Tickets to the event at $20 each plus your potluck contribution.
