2017 CLAY Fes­ti­val

Catron Courier - - Front Page -

The CLAY Fes­ti­val stars on July 22 with the Farm to Ta­ble Fundraiser that show­cases lo­cally grown food from Sil­ver City’s Farmer’s Mar­ket. The menu of chilled beet and chipo­tle soup, pit-roasted lamb, black beans, nopales con queso fresco, blue corn mesquite tor­tillas, salad, and a spe­cial dessert will be pre­pared by lo­cal chefs from Braz­zas Grill, Shevek’s Ca­sual and more. Lo­cal teens have grown the greens and veg­eta­bles that will be the servers at this spe­cial event, while Gruet Win­ery, from the Ele­phant Butte Reser­voir area, will pro­vide the wine.

In keep­ing with the spirit of CLAY, din­ing par­tic­i­pants are asked to bring their fa­vorite ce­ramic place set­ting—the best set­ting will be awarded a prize. Funds raised will help sup­port the CLAY Fes­ti­val in its ef­forts to fos­ter an en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit that en­gages lo­cal busi­nesses, artists in cre­at­ing to ru­ral eco­nomic sus­tain­abil­ity. A por­tion of the pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Vol­un­teer Cen­ter's Food Bank and the Sil­ver City Farmer's Mar­ket.

The open­ing cel­e­bra­tion of the CLAY Fes­ti­val is July 22 from 6 to 9 PM.

On the fol­low­ing days, look for work­shops, lec­tures, tours, and other events, some of which are free to the public. Events wrap up on July 30, and in­clude a free Mud Pie con­test on July 29 and Poker fundraiser.
