Frederiksberg Harvest Feast is the city's new tradition during the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival, where beautiful Frederiksberg Allé is closed and transformed into a massive feasting and folk festival. With a 500-metre long-table and seating for 1400 diners, the Harvest Feast celebrates great ingredients and the meeting between town and country.
Meeting of town and country
For the Harvest Feast, guests sit together at the long-table to enjoy one of seven organic meal experiences, created through partnerships between organic farmers and urban restaurants. The organic farmers bring the best ingredients of the season to the city, where the restaurants then create their three-course harvest menu to share at the tables. Local volunteer enthusiasts will be the hosts and make the evening a memorable experience for everyone.
Around the Harvest Feast, various activities can be experienced with workshops for children and adults, live music, food and drink stalls and so on.
