Humboldt Fervor Fest a Huge Success

Fervor_Entrance.jpgThe Humboldt Fervor Fest, held in the Creamery District on Aug. 13, 2016 from 1-5 p.m., was a resounding success in so many ways.  More than one thousand people attended the fermented food and drink sampling event.  They enjoyed beer, wine, cider, kombucha, distilled spirits, pickled foods, cheese, bread and other delicious items. 

The four local bands, dancers, stilt walkers, giant puppets and performance performance artists enthralled the attendees throughout the four-hour event.  See the Humboldt Fervor Fest website for more information on the festival.  The festival was a fundraiser for Humboldt Made and the Arcata Playhouse.

Humboldt Fervor Fest organizers are delighted that the festival inaugurated reusable glasses, plates and utensils to serve the festival’s delicious food and drink. The new “community cupboard” was initiated by Humboldt Fervor Fest, Zero Waste Humboldt and the Sister City Project, which hosts the I Street Block Party.  The community cupboard is a set of dishes, glasses and utensils that are available to non-profit organizations who sponsor festivals in our region.  The three founding organizations hope to be adding other local non-profits such as Arcata Mainstreet who put on the Oyster Fest and Arts! Arcata and the Arcata Chamber of Commerce who organize the 4th of July Jubilee.

    I love pickled food and even manage to do few jars of pickled this and that a year myself. However it was my first time trying kombucha. It was alright I guess but it may take so time before I can say that I actually like it (they say an adult needs to taste something ten times to feel she likes it ;) ). The whole festival though was an absolute hoot! How about adding some unusual around-the-world dishes next year? Here is a nice suggestion:
