Wauwatosa Village to host Fall Harvest Festival and market dinner Sept. 22

The Wauwatosa Village BID will host their first ever Tosa Village Fall Harvest Festival and a special collaborative Farmers Market dinner on Saturday, Sept. 22.

The event, which is supported by numerous area businesses and presenting sponsor Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative, will take place in the newly street-scaped Village between Harwood and Wauwatosa Avenues.

Festivities will kick off with the Tosa Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to noon, and culminate in a festival filled with activities for kids and families, local foods and beverages, live music and a variety of artisans showcasing their wares.

Beginning at 6 p.m., Café Bavaria, Café Hollander, Le Reve Pâtisserie & Café, and Ristorante Bartolotta dal 1993 will host a ticketed family-style dinner featuring four family-style courses and beer and wine pairings from Luxembourg provided by Ansay International.

During the dinner, up to 100 guests will be seated at a long table which will extend down State Street. Meanwhile, each of the restaurants' chefs including Le Reve's Chef de Cuisine Sarah Edith Obear, Lowlands Group's Executive Chef Thomas Hauck, and Ristorante Bartolotta's Executive Chef Juan Urbieta, will work with the Tosa Farmers Market farm vendors to source seasonal local ingredients for each respective course.

Following several years of renovations and robust growth, the village is ripe for more community-style events noted Michelle Haider, Executive Director of the Wauwatosa Village BID. "Wauwatosa is a special community and this Fall Harvest Festival is a great example of how our businesses join together to offer residents a unique way to enjoy the village," she says.

The Wauwatosa Fall Harvest Festival is free and open to the public. Tickets for the Farmer's Market Dinner can be purchased online.
