Experience this new, family friendly farm-to-table event during the weekly Solvang Farmers Market featuring truly fresh-from-the-market ingredients prepared by Chef David Cecchini of Cecco Ristorante and Mathew Raab of Fresco Valley Café. Savor hearty seasonal stew, small bites, and dine on Cecco Ristorante's covered patio and courtyard tents (instead of Solvang Park due to a potential rain forecast). Come any time to enjoy the festivities plus the sounds of the Bryan Titus Trio.  Since the event is on Cecco’s private property, BYOB wine & beer are no longer an option, yet will be available for purchase by the glass and bottle.
