Farm Tales Dinner & Art Gallery

When women in food and agriculture come together over food and art, magic happens.

This progressive farm-to-table dinner will feature storytelling and art from women in our network alongside locally grown food prepared by a woman chef. Original artwork by our conference logo designer, Katie Blanchard, will be on display. We’re also excited about a handmade Milkweed dress and earrings created from seeds. Join in the fun by creating some art of your own with new friends!

$60 ticket includes dinner, drinks, and entertainment. The dinner is open to non-conference attendees.

Shuttle leaves in front of hotel beginning at 5:15 pm, 5:45 pm, and 6:15 pm. If you are only registered for the dinner there will be a check-in table at the Art Center. We're covering your drinks, but bring some cash for our raffle. We've got great prizes available! 

Doors open at Des Moines Art Center at 6:00 pm. Ample parking available.
