Calling All Artists: Fire Feast on the Farm Design Contest

Announcing our first-ever Design Contest for our summer Fire Feast on the Farm event!

Fire Feast on the Farm, now in its fourth year, has grown into a premier event for the summer season in Saratoga Springs. Fire Feast brings together the talented regional culinary community that is at the forefront of showcasing, encouraging, and supporting the local, sustainable, and seasonal food movement. The event also showcases the varied and amazing products from farmers, foragers, fishermen, wineries, breweries, bakeries, and distilleries from within our vibrant community, highlighting the amazing diversity of hand-crafted and inspiring artisan products.

Like everything we do at the Farm, Fire Feast is grounded in collaboration and community. This year, we are opening up a Call for Artists Design Contest to submit ONE piece of work to be judged by our Fire Feast Planning Committee. One winner will be selected and the artwork will be shared in our promotional materials (with artist copyright) as well as featured prominently at the event. The winning artist will receive a $100 stipend as well as two tickets to the events.
