6th Annual Sukkot Harvest Festival at Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas
Coastal Roots Farm is hosting the Sukkot Harvest Festival at Leichtag Commons on September 30. This annual event for all ages coincides with the last day of the week-long Jewish holiday of Sukkot and is the Farm’s biggest event of the year.
Sharone Oren, Education Manager of Coastal Roots Farm visited the studio on Tuesday to talk about the holiday and the festival.
The Sukkot Harvest Festival is the Farm’s biggest event of the year, inspired by the Jewish tradition of gathering community outdoors to celebrate the end of an abundant summer harvest and welcome in the fall season and all that it brings. Join us under the sukkah (temporary shelter) for a day filled with live music, food, and activities for all ages.
This year’s Festival theme is Renew and Reroot. Festival activities will include shofar blowing and lulav shaking, live music from Shamati, a Kids Zone (including crafts and DIY flower-crowns), farm tours, and fresh foods from local vendors. The event is free, but RSVPs are required. To RSVP, guests are asked to visit their website, here. The Farm is located at 441 Saxony Road in Encinitas, California.
