The Hot Wells Conservancy is Gearing up for it’s 4th Annual Hot Wells Harvest Feast
Hot Wells Conservancy announced the official date of the 4th Annual Hot Wells Harvest Feast premier culinary and historical festival. Last year October 6th, Bexar County announced the approval of a $4 million project to turn the Hot Wells Resort into a county park that will be linked to the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River. Since the project will be an active construction site, this year’s Harvest Feast will be held at the Lone Star Brewery, just south of downtown, thus the theme for this year’s feast, is “Under Construction”. The Harvest Feast started after local chefs Robbie Nowlin and Jeff Wiley visited Justin Parr’s gardens at Hot Wells and created what became an 11-course feast for their friends using only food grown on the property and wild caught proteins. The Feast features cuisine and libations prepared by the most talented and inventive Chefs and Mixologists in San Antonio.
Date: The 2016 Harvest Feast will be held on Wednesday, June 15th from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Tickets: The Harvest Feast is open to the public. Tickets will be available starting April 18th through the organization’s website at www.hotwellsconservancy.org.
Parking: Free parking is available.
What to Expect: Attendees at the Hot Wells Harvest Feast will savor small bite size portions of creations from each Chef. Local Chefs will be competing for the ultimate prize, bragging rights of creating the best dish of this year’s Feast. Live music will be included in the program and raffle prizes will be awarded at the end of the event when the winning Chef is crowned.
About Hot Wells:
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Hot Wells was a spa and resort facility specializing in health and wellness. Built in 1893, the bathing pavilion contained three Sulphur pools. The luxury site was a hotspot for celebrities such as Charlie Chaplain, Teddy Roosevelt and many other Hollywood stars. In 2014 the Hot Wells Conservancy, a 501C-3 organization, was established to be a world-class, national model for urban restoration, revitalization, and a means to stimulate the local economy. The ruin will be a destination point for education, business, competitive and outdoor recreational activities in a safe and inviting county park for people of all ages. Also, the global guests who visit the Missions due to the World Heritage Site status will engender many more visits to the ruin. Its rich history will complement the celebrations of the Tri-Centennial in 2018.
