    20-Year Celebration

    Get your tickets HERE for Thursday, June 27th and join us as we celebrate the impact you've helped Renewing the Countryside make in the past 20 years.

    Renewing the Countryside's 20-Years celebration isn't your grandma's gala of uncomfortable formal wear, dry chicken, and even drier speeches. It's a lively get-together filled with games (wine bottle ring toss, anyone?), great conversation and delicious farm-to-table hors d'oeuvres and libations.

    • an exceptional venue 
    • delicious Greek appetizers from Gardens of Salonica (a long-time supporter of local farmers) 
    • wine from Alexis Bailly Vineyard, craft beer,  cocktails, mocktails and more
    • carnival games like wine ring toss where you can win a bottle of wine (or several…depending on your skills). And CornPop, a new game by RTC (who knew we invented games, too!?) with balloons and prizes. Plus, RTC trivia! Some games require a ticket purchase, while others are free—all in the name of supporting rural communities and local foods systems  
    • the chance to visit Program Stations where you can get to know RTC staff, discuss our wide variety of work and learn how you can help 
    • an awesome silent auction filled with fabulous items and experiences like beekeeping and berry picking excursions*
    • a very short program celebrating what RTC has meant to so many 
    • more food, games and socializing!
