Organic food, wine and a countryside bursting with flavor will be featured at the second annual Farm & Vineyard Faire hosted in the Fulshear Run community, Sunday, April 30, from 2 to 6 p.m.
Proceeds from this farm-to-fork outdoor festival will benefit the Friends of Fort Bend County Historical Commission, a non-profit organization that supports projects to preserve the county’s historical and cultural heritage.
“Our inaugural event attracted 450 guests and was a huge success,” said Doug Konopka, event host and president of DHK Development, developer of Fulshear Run. “Fulshear Run’s natural landscape is the perfect backdrop for food and wine lovers to relish savory fare as they spend the afternoon sipping and strolling under a canopy of oaks and century-old pecan trees.”
The family-friendly outdoor festival features an afternoon of gourmet “farm-to- fork” bites prepared by top chefs, award-winning wine pairings, locally crafted beer, cooking demonstrations, and entertainment for people of all ages.
Honorary Event Chairs are Richmond Mayor Evalyn Moore and local civic and business leaders Carole McCann, Robert Crosser, and Ken Stubbe. Event chairs are Doug and April Konopka.
Event sponsors are Trendmaker Homes, Fulshear Run, Land Rover Southwest Houston, Fairmont Homes, NewFirst National Bank, Prime Living, and Avenu.
