Harvest Moon Event

On September 19th, join us and some of Calgary's top restaurants for an evening of great food, great music and great community in support of Calgary's first Community Food Centre.

Enjoy unforgettable creations from Calgary's top chefs, performances from award-winning musicians, fine wine and local spirits, and great company at the stunning 7K Panorama Ranch, located in the foothills of the Rockies near Okotoks, AB.
