Fortified Collaborations is hosting its final farm dinner of the year at 6pm on Saturday.

The Mad Farmer Dinner will take place inside the Event Barn at Hope Farm, 1601 N. Shields St. in Fort Collins. A free shuttle will be provided from Old Town to the event, which benefits Poudre Valley Community Farms.

The evening includes live music, a hearty dinner prepared by the chefs of The Kitchen Bistro and beer pairings by Soul Squared Brewing.

The dinners demonstrate community collaboration and celebrate the farmers, chefs, breweries, businesses and non-profits that contribute to the quality of life in Fort Collins.

“We exist to expand and enhance community connections,” says Kristina Cash, founder of Fortified Collaborations. “These dinners are the most wonderful embodiment of what we’re all about.”

The dinner takes place rain or shine, and vegetarian options are available and is open to people 21 and older. Tickets are $90 and must be purchased by 8 am on Friday, November 3.

Fortified Collaborations collaborates with local businesses, non-profit organizations and farms to identify their goals, develop strategies to meet those goals and create connections that fortify the community.
