2014 Fermentation Fest — A Live Culture Convergence
October 4-13, 2014
There’s something brewing in the crocks, kettles and jugs in Reedsburg, Wisconsin. If it can be cultured or fermented, you’ll sample it and learn about it at the Reedsburg Fermentation Fest!
Classes, Tastings and more
Each weekend, Reedsburg features a series of tastings, lectures and hands-on classes celebrating local abundance and making it last. From cheese making techniques and home-crafted beer secrets to yogurt and pickling made simple, the Live Culture Convergence has it all! Authors, chefs, bakers, scientists, chocolatiers, and cheesemakers will provide plenty of food for thought. Forty classes will be held by experts on topics from fermented vegetables, hot sauces (and even fermented energy!), to chocolate and coffee fermentation. Attendees will learn take-home skills, enjoy samples, and experience hands-on what fermented foods have to offer.
The Farm/Art DTour
The Farm/Art DTour is a 50-mile self-guided backroads tour by car, bike or buggy through the beautiful, unglaciated hills and valleys of Sauk County that carries over the full 10-day event. The DTour is punctuated by temporary art installations and artist-built mobile Roadside Culture Stands selling fresh, locally grown produce. You’ll also find Field Notes (rural culture education sites), Farm Forms (creations made by farmers, area businesses and community groups), Pasture Performances and more! New things are bubbling up every day that are not included on the map. Keep your eyes peeled for “rogue installations” and pop-up stops.
