The 6th annual Snow Day, a CAC Beardsley Community Farm Benefit, will be hosted at Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria at 7 pm on Friday, January 24th, 2014. CAC Beardsley Community Farm is Knoxville’s only urban demonstration farm that helps get fresh, healthy, local food to Knoxville’s under-served communities.

Snow Day will feature seven performances by a diverse group of local musicians, a soup contest between some of Knoxville’s finest restaurants, caterers, and chefs, a Homegrown and Homemade Beard Pageant, and a silent auction.  So far, silent auction prizes include a CSA share with Colvin Family Farm, a YMCA household membership, and gift certificates to several local Knoxville businesses.  More prizes are expected to be donated between now and January 24th, and local artisans, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to participate in the large silent auction.

Snow Day has become a very popular Knoxville tradition with over 800 attendees and support from over 100 local businesses in Knoxville. These businesses included several restaurants, local retail, and media outlets.   Snow Day is an important event for CAC Beardsley Community Farm that helps raise about 15% of the annual operating budget.

Featured Musicians:  Marina Orchestra, Hudson K, Jamie Cook and Blue South, Greg Horne, Sarah Morgan, Four Leaf Peat, and Jodie Manross.
